Why would sodium chloride (the oldest and most commonly used food preservative) need a preservative? Perhaps you mean anti-caking agent - sodium ferrocyanide?

I subscribe to the 'salt is salt' way of thinking but it's probably worth mentioning that this doesn't seem to state that it is Himalayan.
Amazed poundland sell this. Great buy

The only way to prove the point is to try real Himalayan salt or even sea salt, to see the difference basically you need a lot less of it compared to table salt. Not sure if you have tried the others, so not being preachy just offering my opinion and that of anybody who cooks regularly from scratch.
Wot kind of salt is it?
£1.99@ poundstrether good spot
Most of the salt that says it is Himalayan is fake but at least this doesn’t lie. You are paying for dye though.
Much of the cheaper pink rock salt is mined in Pakistan, not really any different to the mixed mineral salts supposedly from the Himalayas so really take your chances and go with what tastes good to you. Have had the Lidl version, very good and you don't need much to add a genuinely punchy flavour. Voted hot for a chance it could be nice. Ps, before the moaners get in, a little salt is necessary, and I would rather choose one than have it as an added ingredient in a pre-prepared meal! 😬
Does the colour of salt make a difference if its going in food?
Is it dye..? I have it in my kitchen.. Not sure where it came from

This salt is soo much healthier than regular salt. Good for people with blood pressure. 90% of the world's pink Himalaya salt comes from Pakistan.
So this fake salt
I just buy the Saxa Sea Salt. 350g for 80p. Lots of good minerals, and no fakery!

Those zombie films were a warning. That future is now. Thousands of years of scientific progression and pink yeti wee salt that is free of preservatives is a thing. Kill me now.

Yeah, anti-caking was at the back of my mind. Couldn't get it out. It's basic to know sugar, salt and oil are natural preservatives. Just couldn't be bothered to go into depth with someone who has no idea what different salts represent. Sea salt, himalayan, table salt, chinese salt. To think all salt is the same is like living in a cave. It's like saying what's the difference between tesco value ketchup, heinz ketchup and organic biona ketchup.
P.S. I bought 25kg worth of himalayan salt for £15 delivered over a year ago from a deal on HUKD. Still trying to finish it. This deal is cold for me.

So this fake salt


Real salt but but the pink parts are usually dyed pink in many of the supposed himalayan pink salt which contains many more minerals than normal white salt.

This just looks like a pound for normal salt with some dyed pink.
I saw this month's ago for £1
Hasn't this been the Poundland price for ages?

Another gimmick to trick all the pea brained yuppies out there!

I found a website that reports the results of a spectral analysis of Himalayan salt. I think this is where the claim comes from. Even if this analysis is accurate, it is meaningless for health and if anything is worrisome. The amount of minerals in it is too minuscule to make any difference, and we already get plenty of the same trace minerals from other foods. They claim that two double-blind studies were done, but no such studies are listed in PubMed. There is no evidence published in peer-reviewed journals that replacing white salt with pink salt makes a shred of difference or leads to any improvement in health.

If you read down the list of minerals, you will notice that it includes a number of radioactive substances like radium, uranium, and polonium. It also includes substances that act as poisons, like thallium. I wouldn’t be worried, since the amounts are so small; but if anyone believes the trace amounts of “good” minerals in Himalayan sea salt are good for you, why not believe the trace amounts of poisons and radioactive elements are bad for you?

25kg of salt should last you a good 11 years if you're eating no more than the recommended amount of 6g per day, or 8.5 years if you have the average persons daily salt intake. Keep an eye out for more salt deals in 2025!
Ah, the bottled water of the seasoning world.
Buy ordinary table salt and suck on a rusty nail. Same thing...

Someone changed the description but it’s not only pink salt. It includes some normal salt too...
Voted hot but B&M also sell this for £1

I'm an ex chef and cook everything from scratch, so I guess there's some level of opinion here. I think coarse salt tastes different to fine salt depending on its application but that's more down to the texture than the ingredients - eg if you sprinkle coarse salt on a dish you will get a bigger 'hit' when the salt particle hits the salty receptors on your tongue. I don't think pink Himalayan salt tastes any different to the coarse salt from Malvern or elsewhere because salt is just NaCl - there's no magic to it. The colour in pink salt is just mineral impurities which add no flavour.

Either way a quid for this is still a good deal!

I've heard those claims before, but unfortunately it's just unsubstantiated crap. There is no evidence showing it is better than regular sea salt (or even mineral salt). By the way, the cause for the pink colour is iron oxide (i.e.: rust).
