NEW YORK, NY (2018) - Since its introduction to the bath and body market In 2004, Westlab has created an all-natural collect.ion of affordable bathing salts focused on the holistic natural remedies of Dead Sea, Himalayan and Epsom salts to address a wide range of skin care needs. The international salt experts have since expanded their portfolio of pure and natural products with the introduction of a pink Himalayan cooking salt collection in 2018, which includes a new cult kitchen favorite. the Himalayan Salt Cooking Block.

Too much salt and not enough salt can equally spoil a meal. The Himalayan pink salt block is catching on in the culinary world and for good reason. Not only do these colorful prehistoric crystals make healthier, tastier and more interesting meals, but they're also incredibly versatile. Unlike adding table salt to a dish, cooking on a salt block doesn't transfer huge amounts of salt to food. Instead, it gives off a delightful hint of savory flavor.

Westlab's Himalayan Salt Cooking Block can be used on the grill or in the oven to slowly cook and flavor items or used chilled to cure and keep foods cold. The salt block is designed to add a healthy and light flavor to everything from seafood and red meat to veggies and baked goods like cookies. One could even serve ice-cream upon a chilled block.

Appealing to chefs and kitchen enthusiasts alike, the Himalayan Salt Cooking Block is available in two sizes and can be purchased with or without a porcelain-enameled steel holder to safely transport the plate.

In addition, Westlab's pink Himalayan collection includes a consumable cooking salt grinder to further enhance food with more natural flavors than traditional table salt and with a higher concentration of minerals. The right level of salt - also known as sodium - in our diet supports essential body functions. Himalayan salt also contains the same 84 trace minerals and elements as the human body, including sodium, calcium, potassium, and magnesium, which are essential to human life. These additional minerals found in Himalayan salt transfer during the cooking process and provide essential health benefits.

Westlab offers only the highest quality of Himalayan salt sourced from the base of the Himalayan mountain range. This natural salt was formed over 250-million years ago from a prehistoric ocean and preserved in the Himalayan Mountains by tectonic pressure. It remains remarkably pure, free of additives and pollutants.
