Pink Himalayan Salt is mined from salt rock deposits, much like ordinary table salt. The presence of many trace minerals and the unique texture offers a more exotic experience to the way its taste is perceived. Its pink coloration comes from a small amount of iron oxide.
Pink Himalayan Salt is mainly harvested at the second largest salt mine in the world, the Khewra Salt Mine, located in the Salt Range hill system of Pakistan. The mine is large enough to feature statues, bridges, a mosque, and it also serves as a tourist attraction.
Salt harvested from the mine is also popularly used for cooking and serving slabs, which can retain heat and cold evenly and offer a dramatic presentation. Some formations of the pink salt can be used as lamps. It is often mixed into health and beauty products to take advantage of its varied trace minerals.
Because of its striking color, Small Himalayan Pink Salt is often used as a finishing salt to add a dash of flair to any dish. Aside from sprinkling onto anything like meat and vegetables, creative uses also include salting rims of margarita glasses and garnishing sweets such as caramels for both a hit of salinity and visual appeal.
