  • Himalayan salt¬†is¬†rock salt¬†or¬†halite¬†from a mine in the¬†Punjab region¬†of¬†Pakistan, which rises from the¬†Indo-Gangetic Plain. It is mined in the¬†Khewra Salt Mine, located in¬†Khewra,¬†Jhelum District,¬†Punjab region,¬†Pakistan. The¬†foothills¬†of the¬†Salt Range¬†are located¬†300¬†km¬†from the¬†Himalayas,¬†298¬†km¬†from¬†Amritsar,¬†India¬†and260¬†km¬†from¬†Lahore. The salt sometimes occurs in a reddish or pink color, with some crystals having an off-white to transparent color.

    Mineral composition

     

    Himalayan salt crystals

    In 2003 the¬†Bavarian¬†consumer protection agency¬†Bayerisches Landesamt f√ľr Gesundheit und Lebensmittelsicherheit¬†(the Bavarian State Office for Health and Food Safety) analyzed 15 specimens of Himalaya salt sold in¬†Germany¬†and could detect at least ten different minerals, in addition to¬†sodium chloride¬†(98%).

    The chemical composition of Himalayan salt includes 95‚Äď96% sodium chloride, contaminated with 2‚Äď3%¬†polyhalite¬†and small amounts of ten other minerals. The pink color is due to¬†iron oxide.

    Uses

    It is commonly used in cooking, in place of other table salt, in brine, and for bath products such as bath salts. Blocks of salt are also used as serving dishes and in the preparation of food. Fish and some meats can be preserved for use in certain dishes, and blocks of salt can be slowly heated to a temperature of around 400 degrees Fahrenheit and used as a cooking surface thereafter.
