Even though only 2% of the composition of Himalayan salt is different from the other, it still gives a slight difference in taste compared to the usual salt we often used. Going back to the question a while ago, from all of these mentioned elements, is Himalayan pink salt iodized? First, what is iodine? Iodine is an element or a mineral that is very helpful in body functions. It is used by the body cell’s metabolic processes and organ functions in the thyroid. Some common sources of iodine are fish, sea vegetables, dairy products like cheese and milk and eggs. Usually, iodized salt is used in household cooking because of this processed element added to the salt. Now Himalayan pink salt naturally contains iodine which is, of course, found together with the other 83 trace elements. But, iodine in Himalayan pink salts is way lesser in the amount in comparison to the iodized salt we are using. Iodine can then be supplied from the aforementioned foods if you are readily using Himalayan pink salts in replacement of table salts.
Himalayan table salts like other salts are used in cooking, seasoning and of course for the preservation of food. Apart from that, it is also used as an alternative for salt baths, components of lamps and candle holders, etc. Himalayan salt can be used for cooking purposes and even in non-cooking purposes that is why it establishes another trend with the aid of its pastel color of course. Himalayan salt, on the other hand, is also way more expensive compared to table salts that are why only a small amount of it is used when cooking or seasoning.
