Most of the salt is derived from the ground which means it is very hard and thus can not be processed or cut to form salt shakers and other instruments. It is formed by compressing the sea water into extremely high pressure to form a solid mass. Its three great ranges are Kari Kosi, Khumbu Kosi and Akash Kosi. It is of the lowest concentration of sodium chloride and hence is usually used for salt applications.
Himalayan salt is mined from three great Himalayan ranges which are: the Western Himalayas, Central Himalayas and Eastern Himalayas.
Himalayan salt is an extremely high quality which makes it ideal for general industrial and manufacturing industries. The highest grade of salt is the Kosi which is very rare. It contains thousands of microfractures which is highly absorbent.
Some of the salt that has been processed at a higher level and is used as a source of salt for industrial and cooking applications is Kosi Ramani, Ayurvedic salt and Gaudahalli. It has a low concentration of sodium chloride but retains its ability to retain water, have a high melting point and can withstand high temperature without losing its color. Kosi is also capable of retaining its temperature even after being heated several times.
Himalayan pink salt is a type of rock salt that has high mineral content and is highly absorbent. It is used in the market for general uses and as a chemical replacement in the manufacturing industry.
Himalayan salt is light yellow in color and is translucent. It has been studied and analyzed many times and has proven to have great antimicrobial properties. It also is antiseptic and disinfectant and is regarded as an antiseptic due to its high iodine content. High iodine content is a key factor for creating cold medicines as iodine is necessary for supporting the growth of bacteria that can cause cold symptoms.Himalayan salt is said to be an effective, natural antiseptic and antimicrobial agent due to its unique acidity and alkalinity, which have long been used for medicinal purposes. It is antibacterial, antifungal, has antiseptic, disinfectant and antiseptic activity.
Himalayan salt has been shown to possess the same properties as calcium carbonate (commonly known as calcium hydroxide), which are essential for the production of calcium salts. It is extremely absorbent and most of the natural Himalayan salt is very soft and easy to handle.
Himalayan salt is often blended with other products to make it more powerful and efficient in working with. It is very easy to use and has a shelf life of between twenty four and thirty two years. However, the higher grade Himalayan salt does not have this shelf life.
The Himalayan salt that is made in labs is used for industrial purposes where large quantities of it need to be handled. It is commonly mixed with formaldehyde and other chemicals in order to make it more effective and strong in chemical reactions. It is also mixed with salts to create a salt spray which is used for cleaning with the process of using it for cleaning tools.
Himalayan salt is also used in making products which require high temperature due to the long processes used to extract its minerals. Some of these include agricultural fertilizers, organic pesticides, organic fertilizers, pharmaceuticals, chemical compounds and even cooking additives. These can also be mixed with other products for ease of handling and application.
The unique nature of Himalayan salt makes it suitable for high temperature uses which are considered as industrial and processing uses. Other than these applications it is also used in health care and food processing. It is used for treating skinproblems, treating certain skin diseases, treating and curing wounds, healing burns and improving the quality of the blood.
There are many great advantages that it has over the conventional varieties of salt that can be used for all applications. It is cheaper, more hygienic and is very easy to use, however, it needs a few precautions for its proper and safe use.
