    Pink Himalayan salt is used in speciality foods, spa treatments, and even home design. 100 grams of it can cost $5 to $8, up to 20 times more than generic table salt. So, why is it so expensive?

What makes me laugh is it's millions of years old, but in the shops it's got a use by date

I’m a Tibetan guy, my ancestors have been using Himalayan salt for 1000s of years. It’s no different, safe your money and buy a normal salt, save the environment.

Himalayan salt is expensive because just like diamonds they have an incredible marketing team.

As an Indian, I've been eating pink salt for as far as I can remember, it is really popular in India and used very frequently. It sure has a different taste, and it is often used in traditional digestive medicines. It is also said that it has less drastic effect on your blood pressure than regular salt, so it is recommended to people with high BP problems as a replacement. It tastes a bit different than your regular salt for sure. it has more "pleasant" and flavored taste than regular salt, which is just.... salty.

I had no idea Himalayan salt was this popular. One time I bought it, because they were out of regular salt, and I pretty much been using it ever since. I find it not as "harsh" and "easier on the palette", like the guy in the video said. It just "tastes" better to me, that's the only reason I switched. And I buy salt like maybe 2-3 times a year, so it's not a huge expense for me.

Surprisingly, It's still used as table salt in many rural areas of jammu and kashmir.

A interesting break down I saw was that, out of the trace materials, there were no microplastics within Himalayan Salt when compared to Sea Salt. Since Sea water is heavily polluted. I am definitely not saying Himalayan is magical like many do, but I think that is a fair comparison.

I live in Pakistan, and pink salt is regularly used in my household. I can tell you that it does indeed taste different, but I'm not sure about the health benefits.

In summary, anything that is done by hands and uses lots of raw materials for a little output must be expensive

It does taste a bit different, less bitter. Also, even if it contains only 2% of other minerals, some of these minerals are quite rare and even tiny amount is enough for your body to benefit from them. The last thing- it comes from evaporated seas which were over time buried deep under the ground. At the time this salt was created there were no chemicals, pesticides etc. This salt is very pure.

I personally feel like it makes a big difference in taste when cooking. A few years back I just happened to pick it up one day while grocery shopping without knowing the hype behind it and I love how it tastes.

I actually used to live not far from the salt mines and visited the mines a while back. It was really cold inside the mine. A beautiful experience .
