Khewra Mines were discovered accidentally around 300 BC by Alexander the Great’s Army Horses. Since then these mines have been providing pink rock salt to the entire world.
Rock salt is used in many industries besides our culinary. When mined it is not clean enough to be used in the kitchen. Some rocks have more soil content or dust and residue of explosive material used in mining so it needs a careful selection of the rocks, proper cleaning and processing. Sarang has taken this responsibility and two products are here i.e. Khewra Rock Salt powder 900g pouch and Khewra Rock Salt 2-5 mm pebbles 300g pouch.
Himalayan pink salt contains less sodium per serving than ordinary table salt. Table salt contains 2360 milligrams of sodium per teaspoon, whereas a teaspoon of Pink Rock Salt contains 1680 milligrams of sodium — a reduction of about one-third.
Khewra Rock Salt is often called Himalayan pink salt also can contain trace amounts of more than 84 minerals that table salt does not, including:
Trace minerals, such as potassium, magnesium, and calcium gives the salt its light pink tint.
Rock salt is full of minerals and vitamins, which improves digestion, promotes bowel movements, and helps to clean toxic products from the intestine. It also helps to improve the loss of appetite. The study result suggests that rock salt can stimulate insulin in the body that prevents sugar cravings.
Rock Salt brings a refreshing combination of great taste and health to your table. The pink crystals are rich in essential minerals like calcium, magnesium and potassium.
The unrefined version i.e. rock salt has more minerals compared to table salt as during the refining process it loses calcium, potassium, etc.
Experts suggest that wherever possible, common refined salt should be replaced with rock salt, which offers many more benefits. Common salt is refined through processes to clean it and make it look ‘whiter’. Most of the times, during the refining process, the salt loses is natural mineral content.
It is better to go for Himalayan salt or rock salt instead of it. That cutting down on sodium in your diet is the best way to maintain your BP? Even a small reduction in the sodium in your diet can improve blood pressure by about 5 to 6 mm Hg
