Why Pink Himalayan Salt Is So Expensive | So Expensive

  • Am 1 Jun 2019 veröffentlicht
  • 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?

    It has arsenic, lead and mercury among other fun things in it, and people claim it's healthier than normal salt. A very small amount as they said in the video, but still, a fun fact to tell someone who buys it because "it has healthy minerals in it!"

    It tastes a lot better than table salt, almost sweeter, and that is the trace minerals, trace minerals are what our body is searching for and our tongue is tuned into, it makes since we are attracted to the taste of the pink salt.

    Want to do something more interesting than watch this video. Go get some salt out of your pantry, pour a little out and look at it with a magnifying glass. All of them will be square in shape. No matter how fine you break it up, always square. Due to the way Halite bonds are formed. Also salt is a crystal, due to crystaline structure and growth.

    Just cause it makes up only 2 percent, doesn’t mean you can’t get stuff out of it. Just because it is more than normal table salt doesn’t mean ur buying a Lamborghini either. When you eat more of it in your meals overtime, those minerals can take a part weather known or not. I think you ran out of ideas on this one when ur dissing on pink salt.
    Edit: looking through the comments more revealed some channel called hass explaining this better than I have. He/she explained that they would be toxic if you had too much therefore that’s why there is so little of those minerals in the first place. They then explain how a real scientist would of stated that the affects are unknown to be positive or negative or nothing at all. I’ll stop because I don’t want to look like I’m stealing all of what hass said but I appreciate that someone before me also recognized similar things.
    Thank you to hass for your comment!
