    Who's tried Himalayan Pink Salt?

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    I bought the Coles brand of Himalayan Pink Salt crystals (in a grinder) and I was getting a little too addicted to it. So I've put it away, to cut down on my use of it. I'm now using SAXA Four Seasons Pepper (I did previously buy a Select Pepper Medley from Woolworths but I'm finding that's a bit too spicy for me).

    As an aside, I'll have to buy a proper grinder as this Coles one came apart in my hand but I did manage to reassemble it.

    There is no evidence to support the claim that Himalayan Pink Salt has any health benefits over ordinary salt. The big question about salt is whether you already have enough to meet daily requirements (about 6mg or 1 tspn) in your diet without adding more.

    I prefer to buy Australian products where possible. The Murray pink salt flakes widely available in IGAs etc are fantastic with a subtle flabour; for more intensity the Tasman Sea salt flakes are great.

    Gotta smile, we decry the use of sugar in all of its forms! guess salt is OK.

    I enjoy both salt and sugar, however am very aware of my overall intake, there's that word once again "MODERATION"

    Kinda distinct issues, really... like sugar, people eating the SAD* have a very high salt intake, but as part of a balanced diet with predominantly fresh produce, in moderation it's fine.

    But afaict obesity is currently a much bigger problem than health issues caused by salt. Hypertension can be easily controlled long-term with cheap and readily available drugs with next to no side effects! Wasn't always that way as people of my parents' generation will attest... It's also pretty easy to "quit" high salt - it doesn't key into pleasure receptors in the same way sugar does (just my layperson's second crack).

    No. I wish I was getting paid by a food company, but I'm not.

    I just discovered SAXA Four Seasons Pepper isn't perfect in its taste either. I guess I'll have to keep searching for the perfect thingy.
