is Himalayan pink salt not salty?
It is salty. I use it a lot.
Its just you...
Or is it the salt I bought? What if it’s fake salt?
Fake salt, like dyed perhaps? I’d have no idea... never heard of fake salt.
Last time I tried it the stuff was like eating a sandbox it had so much grit in it...
The last time I tried some, I burnt my tongue. Maybe I should have turned the light off first.
Seriously though, I've noticed the same thing (very gritty and not very salty), so it's probably got lots of other inedible rocks and stuff ground in with it that dilute the salt taste.
Don't know where you all are getting your pink salt from, but my pink salt is salty and certainly not gritty!
Probably just you. It's saltier than most sea salt, I find.
Hello, I think it's salty.
My selection of sea salts are much saltier.
That’s exactly my point. Where are we getting these salts? Is the salt industry corrupt? I think I got my pink salt on sale at TJMaxx. I don’t have the container anymore. Could it be something dyed and labeled as himalayan salt?
I think some of you need a new hobby.
I find it on the salty/sour side and use it in place of "sour salt" in one recipe. I bought mine from San Francisco Salt Co.
Send a sample to NASA to have it chemically analyzed
There are probably some people out there that get pink curing salt thinking that they're getting the Himalayan stuff. Bad mistake.
What's pink curing salt?
It's salt mixed with sodium nitrate/nitrite. They dyed it pink to distinguish it from regular salt.
It's used for bacon, hams, sausages, etc.
Pink Himilayan I get at TJ Max discount all the time is not only salty but has strong mineral overtones, great for steak but too intense for fish and vegetables.
I prefer to use this at my home when I cook sausages or burgers for me.
