Hand-mined each spring from the foothills of the Himalayas, this pink crystal salt from Himalania is 100 percent pure and unpolluted, thanks to prehistoric fossilization. It’s rich in 84 minerals including calcium, potassium, magnesium, and iron, which accounts for its rosy hue. And with a handy, portion-controlling grater included in the (recyclable) glass jar, even sodium watchers can enjoy the salt’s distinctive crunch and delicate flavor.
