Why You’ll Love Himalayan Pink Salt Bag
As one of the world’s most vital and treasured commodities, salt has remained a kitchen staple throughout history and comes in many interesting forms and colors—from Crystalline Sea Salt to Kosher Salt to Fleur De Sel to Red Hawaiian Sea Salt to our favorite, Himalayan Pink Sea Salt. Thrive Market is proud to introduce our own version to our product line, which comes in a resealable bag for your convenience and can be used to fill up your salt grinder in a moment’s notice.
Thrive Market Himalayan Pink Sea Salt is ethically sourced, non-GMO, kosher, and contains 84 trace elements and minerals. Mined by hand from ancient deposits in the Himalayas, this salt has none of the additives that you may find in regular table salt.
As with other Thrive Market products, all of our spices are high-quality and carefully sourced. Even better, our unique, minimal packaging means we can give an incredibly affordable price tag on thyme, oregano, curry powder, cayenne pepper, cinnamon, ground cumin, basil, turmeric powder, and more.
A brief history of salt
In ancient times, salt was exclusively mined from caves or gathered by communities that lived near the sea, and quickly became the world’s first major commodity. This tiny, savory little rock is one of the most valuable products known to man and has played major roles throughout many different civilizations in history:
- Ancient Greeks exchanged slaves for salt
- Romans used salt as partial pay for soldiers
- Ancient Ethiopians used disks of salt as currency
- Chinese writing dating back to 2700 B.C. referenced 40 different types of salt
- One of the taxes that sparked the French Revolution was for salt
- The Erie Canal was built mainly for the transportation of salt
More about Himalayan Pink Sea Salt
Himalayan salt is an unrefined, unprocessed raw mineral mined by hand from caves that formed 250 million years ago. It’s sourced from the foothills of the Salt Range, just a few miles from the tallest mountains on the planet. Since it's harvested in solid crystals, it's thought to be more potent than colloidal sea salt, which is produced from evaporated water. Today, pink salt is often considered to be one of the purest forms available.
An obviously unique aspect of Himalayan Pink Salt is its color. The pink hue is entirely natural, and comes from the inherent impurities within nature that minerals will have—but it’s entirely safe to eat.
Thrive Market Himalayan Pink Sea Salt versus the rest
Standard table salt is 97.5 percent sodium chloride, and 2.5 percent “other” ingredients, which can include anti-caking chemicals. The process used to create refined table salt alters the natural chemical structure of salt during the heating process, which can unfortunately destroy many of the desirable minerals.
In contrast, Himalayan Pink Salt is approximately 85 percent sodium chloride, including no additives, with the remaining 15 percent containing 84 trace elements and minerals such as iron, phosphorous, calcium, potassium, magnesium, and chloride. This salt is also unrefined, which means it may be more easily absorbed by the body than highly processed salt.
Salt is often used to enhance the flavors in our food, but it has a much more important role than that—it helps some functions of the human body. In fact, a lack of sodium may cause some health related issues such as electrolyte imbalance and dehydration.
