SPICE & SEASONING IN A BOTTLE COLLECTION
Welcome to our exclusive Send A Bottle Spice collection, there is something for everyone to experience the sense of taste , smell and sight in a bottle. Send it to a loved one or taste it yourself, the Himalayan Rock Salt adds flavor to every dish.
Kala namak or Nalla Uppu is a kiln-fired rock salt used in South Asia with a sulphurous, pungent-smell. It is also known as "Himalayan black salt", Karuppu Uppu, Sulemani namak, bit lobon, kala noon, or pada loon and manufactured from the salts mined in the regions surrounding the Himalayas.
The condiment is composed largely of sodium chloride with several other components lending the salt its color and smell. The smell is mainly due to its sulfur content. Because of the presence of Greigite (Fe3S4, Iron(II,III) sulfide) in the mineral, it forms brownish pink to dark violet translucent crystals when whole. When ground into a powder, its color ranges from purple to pink.
Kala namak has been praised in Ayurveda and used for its perceived medical qualities.
