The Himalayan rock salt or Himalayan pink salt doesn’t actually come from the Himalayas. It is a common misconception. It actually comes from Punjab, Pakistan. It is one of the most purest salts available for consumption out there. This salt is mined and comes in various colours, such as pink, white and even blue. It dissolves easily in water and is low in sodium. It’s uniodized, and hence healthier. Natural salt is found in many different places. It is usually white in colour and comes in the form of grainly crystals.

Both of them have different properties when it comes to texture, flavour and nutrient content.

Natural rock salt is quite similar to Himalayan rock salt, when it comes to sodium content and flavour profile, however, the Himalayan rock salt is slightly less salty, has lower sodium content, and contains as many as 84-92 trace minerals due to it being unrefined and unprocessed. They’re both equally healthy, and go great with chaats and other preparations. You can try the Organic Tattva natural salts for a deeper flavour profile. They too are low in sodium, and can be easily found in any store near you, or online.
