The finest quality crystal salt on earth. No small claim, but what else to expect from a company called Nirvana?
On the banks of the Indus river, high in the Himalayan foothills, lies the village of Wanda Kukranwala. It is from here that Nirvana Organics sources the salt for its incredible (yes, incredible, we are excited about salt!) range of salty goodness.
History lesson – Himalayan Crystal Salt was formed about 250 million years ago when the energy of the sun dried a primal ocean. The ocean bed was thrust skywards by tremendous geological forces as the mighty Himalaya took shape. The pure veins of crystal salt lay locked away – waiting to be unearthed.
Nirvana Organics Himalayan Crystal Salt is much more than just rock salt or the sea salt processed in modern times. It is a complete food, identical in composition to the primal ocean itself. It contains an abundance of stored sunlight plus 84 minerals and trace elements found naturally in the human body, essential for life and good health. Due to the salt"s remarkable crystalline structure, the elements are available in minute particles (colloidal size) and can easily be absorbed by human cells and metabolized.
Nirvana Organics Himalayan Crystal Salt is selected from one of the few regions in the world where salt is still hand mined, hand picked and stone ground. It takes time, but with the crystals intact, you are assured of the most beneficial, mineral-rich salt available.
Get your map out... Nirvana Organics Himalayan Crystal Salt is found in veins flowing beneath the salt mountains of the Kalabagh region in the Himalayan foothills. Their salt is extracted exclusively from the Kalabagh and is hand mined from the Khewra, Warcha and Kalabagh mines.
Unlike normal sea salt, Himalayan Crystal Salt is uncontaminated by environmental factors. Better still, Himalayan Crystal Salt from the Kalabagh region, in particular, is renowned for its consistent composition and purity. The composition of the salt is tested regularly each year by an independent company and has been shown to consistently contain all the major components of the known 84 mineral and trace elements of Himalayan Crystal Salt.
A typical analysis of salt from the region indicates that the salt consistently contains the same minerals and trace elements. The salt is a completely natural product, so the exact quantity of minerals and trace elements in the salt may vary marginally from batch to batch.
Genuine, pure Himalayan Crystal Salt is found in veins that may vary in colour from "pure white" to "white with a pink hue" to peach. On rare occasions it may even contain red or black specs. This is perfectly natural and simply reflects the mineral and trace element content. Nirvana Organics select salt for your table that tends to be "pure white" or "white with a pink hue". It looks great on the plate.Season your food with the best salt on earth... and say things like the 'Salt of the Earth' as you do it.
