Storage & handling
Store in a dry, cool place.
Himalayan Pink Salt is mined from salt rock deposits, much like ordinary table salt. Used as a cooking or serving element, it adds a faint hint of salt and trace minerals for a more exotic experience to the way its taste is perceived.
Himalayan Pink Salt is harvested at the second largest salt mine in the world, located in the Salt Range hill system of Pakistan. The mine is large enough to feature statutes, bridges and a mosque. Other formations of pink salt from the mine are used in cooking, as lamps and mixed into health and beauty products.
Our Himalayan Pink Salt Slabs can be used to cook food, offering near-perfect heat distribution when heated for grilling or searing. They also retain cold evenly, offering a dramatic presentation for salads, fruit, vegetables, appetizers, crudo and sushi.
