Important Information

Indications

Gourmet food-grade salt for consumption.

Ingredients

Pure Himalayan Salt.

Directions

Himalayan Salt is great for seasoning meats, grilled veggies, salads (such as pasta, egg or potato salads), soups & stews and is also a flavorful salt to use when baking. This salt can also be added to the bath. Dissolve a handful into a warm bath or, for true muscle and skin therapy, try using 1lbs or more. Please note: Due to the slow dissolve rate and unique composition of minerals Himalayan salts may take a little longer than usual to dissolve in water.

Love Himalayan salt....used it for years....so many uses for it: to eat, foot and body detox in tub, fill my inhaler and use it when sick, etc....and its difficult to find in this size with the "fine" grain (which is the eatable kind that can go through a regular salt shaker). I was really glad to find Amazon had it in this size and at the best price!!

Many friends ask me why my salt is "pink" and I provide them with the literature on the healing properties of pink salt or refer them to the Internet that has plenty of info about all the great things about Himalayan salt and its healing properties....as well as how it makes everything taste so much better!! Most people think of salt as "white" not "pink" but they don't realize the pink is the natural salt and has not had the minerals stripped from it....

NOTE: Anything smaller than the "fine" grain, is like a powder, so if you use it for eating, order the "fine" grain....IF you have a grinder, get the next size up...

I have been buying salt scrub from a local business, and decided to make my own. This is perfect. If you are going to use this for scrub purposes, that is salt with some type of oil added, go with the fine grain.It is about the same size as kosher salt. The course is way to big, unless you want to grind it. This salt is also food grade, making it dual purpose. The flavor is great, not quite as salty tasting as basic sea salt. Would highly recommend. Seller ships very fast.

Ordered 5 lbs of the fine grade pink salt. Amazon fast shipped as always and cooked my first meal with the salt. There was a more saltier taste then with regular salt,so I did not use as much. Food tasted fine.

Himalayan salt is my favorite salt. The taste doesn't compare to any other salt I've tried. I've been sharing it with everyone, and they love it too. I also was attracted to it because of all the health benefits plus the 84 trace minerals. I really like the "extra fine" grain. I've tried both the "fine" and the "extra fine". The "extra fine" is the most similar to table salt.

I was fortunate enough to be solicited by the San Francisco Salt Company to do a tasting and review of several of their gourmet salt products. I do have a background in quality control laboratory work for a well-known food processing company and I do cook and I review cookbooks. I am not a 'super-taster' but I am an experienced taster. For this 'test', I set up several gourmet salts from this company and from my own pantry. I tasted each salt on its own and in comparison to the others; refreshing my palate with filtered water between test samples. I also considered crystal size/texture, solubility and color impact. The results of this kind of testing are only my opinions and preferences in gourmet cooking salts.

First of all, this is a salt derived from dried deposits rather than one skimmed from the surface of sea water pumped into evaporation tanks or ponds. I found it shared about the same 'salty' characteristics as any non-iodized table salt--a single dimension 'tang' to which iodized salt adds a bit of bitterness. To my taste, the fresh sea-water derived salts have a more fully-rounded salt flavour and that flavour actually has 'punch' on the palate.

This salt is easily dissolved in comparison to larger flaked crystalized salts. Cooks looking for salty tang plus 'crunch' can order the same salt in larger crystal sizes and I fall in the group that would prefer those larger crystals: gourmet salts like this are valued by chefs for colour and for crunch. The instantly appealing colour of this product calls for it to stand out as an accent to a dish so it is most effectively used as a 'finishing' salt. That is how it is used on those food TV shows. The larger crystals help since, once dissolved, the colour 'disappears.'

This is a clean, well-made salt but only its colour gives it a gourmet cachet. Without the larger crystal size, this version of the salt loses the attractive crunch a finishing salt should have.

Awesome, love the salty taste, haha.
Seriously, great salt. I ordered "fine". Well, "Fine" is not small enough to be used in your standard salt shaker.
Get "Extra Fine", I guess?

My Sherpa Pink Gourmet Himalayan Salt came much faster than I thought it would, which pleased me greatly. I want to thank you for offering such a great product at such a good price. My husband and I have been using it for a long time now. And I gave some to my son and he absolutely loves it. This is a good size package to share too.

We only use pink salt. This is a great salt for cooking and baking and it can also be added to a bath. It is reasonably priced and has lasted for months. We can all taste the difference. Food has more flavor, but doesn't have a salty aftertaste like what we were getting with regular salt. This has good minerals and no fillers.
