Himalayan rock salt

Himalayan rock salt originates from northern Pakistan, an area called the “Salt Range”, not far from the Himalayas. It is a natural rock salt that was created when the prehistoric seas evaporated some 250 million years ago.

The actual salt rocks vary in colour from pure white to beautiful light pink and dramatic deep red, all depending on the iron oxide content.

Flavor: highly flavored with long-lasting spicy heat over a mild mineral body.

Ideal for: seasoning meat and fish, as well as vegetables.

Blue rock salt

Extracted from salt mines in the middle east, blue rock salt is one of the rarest and most exclusive salts in the world. The intriguing blue color occurs during the forming of the salt’s crystalline structure, as intense pressure is exerted on the salt deposits. The individual crystals fracture the light in an unusual way creating an optical illusion that makes the salt appear more or less shimmering blue.

Flavor: initially quite present, then rather mild with a silken sweetness.

Ideal for: seafood, salads, French cuisine and truffles.

Alpine rock salt

Mined from deep in the Austrian Alps, the Alpine salt has one of the highest mineral contents available. Its reddish-brown color is caused by this high content of minerals, iron amongst others.

Flavor: intense, pure salt taste

Ideal for: dark meat and game meat

Kala namak rock salt

Kala Namak truly is a secret ingredient – especially in the vegan cuisine – as it adds an eggy, tangy and slightly smoky taste due to its high sulphur content. The unusual flavor makes it perfect for many vegan dishes like tofu scramble, chickpea omelettes and fruit salads.

Flavor: slightly smokey, tangy

Ideal for: South Asian cuisine, chaats, chutneys and raitas, vegan dishes, savoury deep-fried snacks, movie night popcorn

Flavor: intense natural salt taste, little goes a long way!
