Himalayan Rock Salt (Pink) सेंधा नमक

in food •  3 months ago

In our city, I saw so many vendors selling pink color rocks and it is called सेंधा नमक (Sendha Namak/Rock salt) in our language. Despite of being a healthy alternative to sea salt it is not used as a preferred salt in daily cooking.
The vendor is selling this rocks(salt) for just 0.4USD per kg.


Rock salt is a type of mineral salt (rock salt) which comes from the Khera Khan(Khera Mines) of Jhelum district of Punjab province of Pakistan. This is a white salt with a little redness. During fasting, fasting etc. in the Indian subcontinent, people make a snack or fruit cake made in rock salt. Rock salt is also called 'Lahori Salt', because it is available in Pakistan.
Rock salt is also used in many Ayurvedic medicines.


Health Benefits of Rock Salt

  • It is lower in sodium than regular table salt and contains 94 trace minerals, as opposed to the three that are in common table salt.
  • Various research has shown that RockSalt is more beneficial than other edible salts for patients suffering from chronic kidney disease.
  • Some other health benefits include improves digestion, boosts metabolism, boosts immunity, treats sinus, reduces stress, promotes healthy skin, exfoliates skin, reduces edema, treats bleeding gums etc.

Over a thousand miles away from the world’s most famous peak, in northern Pakistan, lies the foothills of the Salt Range and the Khewra Salt Mine. Millions of years ago a shallow sea evaporated and left behind tons of crystallized sea salt which over time became buried deep below the mineral-rich mountains. This is where Himalayan pink sea salt comes from.
