Westlab Himalayan Pink Salt 2kg bag in Home bargains for £2.99.

Just picked up a couple of bags, better value than the 2 for £4.50 (2x1kg) bags.

I've used this before, but interested to hear thoughts of this (Westlab) versus the more expensive Dr Salts which seems to sell for between £5-£7 (1kg) in Tesco etc...

Hope this helps someone out.

I've got some yellow salt for sale if anyone wants some. I can supply in a variety of shades...


Snake Oil.
Salt of the Earth ...
2 for £4.50 at my local store, this is good stuff though, been using it for several months.
Expiry date...
This made my fish and chips taste funny.
Why would anyone pay to have salt from the Himalayas? Food miles gone mad......Cold from me.

It's not from the Himalayas, it's from Pakistan. Which makes it alright!
Most salts are the same, mostly sodium chlorine and some very small trace minerals. So there is likely to be very little difference between this salt that has travelled thousands of miles to be here and the stuff dug out of the ground in the uk or evaporated to make sea salt. But I suppose that for every product there is a punter.....Trace Iron gives it the pink tinge.
Sodium Chloride, I believe!

Yes, there should have been a comma after the sodium, but thanks for picking that up.

Yes it will almost certainly be identical. The salt you buy is heavily processed and most of the trace elements have been removed so almost pure sodium chloride. Sea salt is slightly different in that it hasn’t been as extensively processed and will have some trace elements. Most table salts though will be almost identical, in fact the salt used on the road is exactly the same, just mixed with sand and some anti caking chemicals.
