The Aromas of Diamond Salt

With a slightly less salty flavor than fleur de sel, a slightly drier texture, and a neutral taste, diamond salt complements all dishes perfectly. Its pink hue is due to its iron concentration. This gemstone salt, non-iodized, is distinguished by its elegance and impressive appearance.

Diamond Salt, Jewel of the Himalayas!

The history of diamond salt dates back approximately 200 million years when the Himalayan range was formed as a result of the collision of the Indo-Australian and Eurasian tectonic plates, leading to the disappearance of the Tethys Ocean that separated them. Over time, the evaporation of the waters of this ocean left behind pink salt crystals, rich in minerals and trace elements.

Around 350 BCE, Alexander the Great is said to have been the first to bring this precious salt from Kashmir to Europe. At that time, it was reserved for deities and emperors, a testament to its exceptional value.

Today, these fossil marine salt crystals, also known as gem salt, mining salt, or earth salt, are delicately hand-extracted from the mines of Khewra, located in the heart of the Himalayas. They are free from any pollution, additives, and are unrefined, making them perfectly assimilable by the body. It is fascinating to note that these mines still contain nearly 600 million tons of salt, demonstrating the inexhaustible wealth of this natural resource.
