Himalayan Pink Salt is a rock salt from the Khewra salt mines of Pakistan. These 4.6 million year old salt deposits are thought to have been discovered by Alexander the Great's horse in 320 BC when it started licking the ground during a rest stop. The salt contains many trace minerals along with sodium and chloride. We package a fine grind of this beautiful salt in our tine, giving you easy access to extra seasoning for your dishes. The tins are full to the brim with 250 gm (8.8 oz) of salt. Certified by Kosher by EarthKosher.
