Himalayan Black Salt (Kala Namak) 250gr

Himalayan black salt, also known as kala namak or sanchal, is a type of Indian volcanic rock salt commonly used in India, Pakistan and other Asian countries. The “black” salt is actually pinkish-grey due to the presence of iron and other minerals. Indian black salt has a very distinctive sulfurous taste, often compared to hard-boiled egg yolks. Its health benefits are numerous according to ayurvedic medicine, but the claims are largely anecdotal as no scientific research has been conducted on Indian black salt to date. Consult a naturopath or ayurvedic practitioner about the potential health benefits of Indian black salt.

Potential Health Benefits

Indian black salt is considered a cooling spice in ayurvedic medicine and is recommended for many health issues such as constipation, indigestion, heartburn, bloating, flatulence, goiter, poor eyesight and hysteria, according to the book “Herbs that Heal.” In India, black salt is sometimes recommended to people on low-salt diets due to hypertension because it’s believed to be lower in sodium content compared to regular table salt. Of course, the composition of Indian black salt varies quite a bit and depends mainly on whether it’s manufactured using traditional or modern techniques.

Cooking Benefits

Indian black salt is used extensively on Indian food, including chutneys, yogurts, pickles, salads and all kinds of fruits. It’s often appreciated by strict vegans because it mimics the taste of eggs in tofu and other vegetarian dishes. During the hot Indian summer months, it’s also sometimes used to flavor cool drinks, which is a practical way to replace sodium lost through excessive perspiration.
