This pure, strikingly beautiful, pink sea salt looks as attractive on food as it does on your table in a bowl, in a saltshaker, or salt mill. Himalayan Pink Sea Salt crystals were formed millions of years ago when the mountains lifted out of the ancient primal sea due to the collision of the Indian Tectonic Plate with the Eurasian Plateau.The colors of Himalayan Pink Sea Salt range from very light pink to deep red and it contains 84 trace minerals, including iron, magnesium, calcium, and potassium. Unlike softer sea salts, Himalayan Pink Sea Salt has a nice, firm crunch while its flavor is mild and gentle, with a touch of sweetness, and no harsh or bitter aftertaste. It tastes wonderful on everything and will not overpower your foods with salty flavor. The crystals melt quickly and evenly making it ideal for roasting, and baking. These pink, course granules can be used as is or in salt grinder for finer flakes as the texture is ideal for use as a finishing salt. 3 oz.
