The best, most organic, untreated, and pollutant-free salt on earth is allegedly edible pink salt. The healthiest and most widely used variety of edible salt, it is made up of 98% sodium chloride (NaCl) and 2% of 84 essential trace elements and components (including magnesium, iron, calcium, zinc, and potassium). It contains no poisonous ingredients. The second-largest salt mine in the world is where this rock salt was discovered (Khewra salt mines). The Khewra Salt Mines, which are situated on the foothills of the Himalayan Salt Range between the Indus River and the Punjab Plain, is where the Himalayan salt is also famously mined.

There are four shades of pink salt: pink, pinkish-white, reddish, and steak red. The pink salt’s color is due to the iron that it contains. Every day, hundreds of workers physically remove tonnes of edible pink salt from the Khewra salt mines, where it has been accumulated since seawater or a salty lake evaporated 200 to 250 million years ago. It is not need to use silica packets to prevent clumping because its shelf life is limitless.
