Salt and pepper doesn’t sound like an interesting topic, does it? We didn’t think so either until we opened a box from Sustainable Sourcing LLC and spread their products across our counter. Once we read the enclosed information we found salt and pepper could be very interesting, especially when the company that brings these organic, gourmet products to market is downright inspirational.
HimalaSalt is hand harvested from the Himalayan Mountains. It is pure, pristine sea salt created 250 million years ago from an ancient ocean. Its lovely pink color is due to its high content of essential minerals (it’s high in magnesium, calcium, and iron and contains more than 80 essential trace minerals). It is never heat treated. It is stone ground, all natural, unrefined, and additive free. Its taste is full-bodied and rich. When you taste it, you’ll realize this is how salt is supposed to taste!
HimalaSalt is actually good for you. Its essential minerals replenish vital electrolytes. It alkalizes the body, allowing vital nutrients to be absorbed more efficiently, while aiding the body in releasing acidic waste.
It comes in a surprising variety which includes a 7oz. box of coarse crystals, 4 oz. and 2.8 oz. refillable salt grinders, a 6 oz. fine grain shaker, and a one pound Zen Cube that comes with a stainless steel Inox Italian grater. The Zen Cube looks like a big chunk of rose quartz. It’s unique, beautiful, and fun to use. Sustainable Sourcing also offers organic garlic salt in a shaker.
Sustainable Sourcing’s Organic Heirloom Peppercorn ™ line is equally appealing. Sold in refillable pepper grinders and spice jars, the variety includes Cubeb Pepper grown in the Monsoon Forests of Indonesia, Heirloom Long Pepper from Bali, pink peppercorns from Brazil, green peppercorns from India, white peppercorns from Indonesia, and the Rainbow Blend—black, white, pink, and green peppercorns. Each delivers a distinctive flavor.
