Nice thread Blend !

I grind himalayan pink rock salt as it has over 86 minerals and trace elements,
supposrdly making it a healthier choice. ( although Doctors will state that there is no healthy salt )

It is millions or years old and comes in its natural form.

Here is my question ...

Why does it arrive at the supermarket with a use by date ?

Ha, must be a marketing trick to get you to chuck it and buy a new container.
How long I wonder do they say it's good for?
Salt, in my opinion, should be good forever.

Has anyone ever wondered why: Food guides tell us to reduce salt consumption in general; but when a person is injured, paramedics, and/or doctors, always seem to rapidly inject a saline-solution into injured persons?

I'm not sure why it's wrong to make salt in a lab.

You react chlorine with sodium and you get salt. It is the same stuff you get out of ground. If anything, the impurities are found in the natural form and are what give them their colors and flavors.


I rented a place in Italy about 40 feet from the beach a few years ago and dragged up about 40 buckets of water and boiled it down to harvest my own sea salt. Used it on food and also in the bath and I tell you it was nothing like the table salt made in labs.

Maybe it was all the other minerals in there or possibly all the toxins from pollution clouding my judgement who knows.

I use this as well.
I also have a "ritual" by no means is it anything but a belief in my own mind based on multiple pagan/ gypsy sources I suppose...but always when I move to a new house I surround the perimeter on the first full moon with a continuous line of salt. Thereby in my belief keeping anything that wants to do me harm..out. I will in that house, under every new full moon each season do the same. I adopted this method about 8 years ago from who knows where...I suppose story research about witchcraft. Whether it works or not is questionable, but it makes me feel better, and if the universe is controlled by thoughts and beliefs...well...

I read about something similar to that. As well as putting a glass of salt water on your night table to attract all the negative energy in the house. Apparently it is good for absorbing it as well as repelling it. I think it is also good to keep certain bugs out (putting salt around the perimeter) ..I believe I read that somewhere, maybe ants and spiders??? Anyhow, it does have some practical use as well as, so it's beneficial either way.

I did read about the saline drip and how they use salt within the medical field. Also used in nasal and eye washes..etc..I'm sure there are other areas it's used in as well. The one link was related to a quick overview of how salt was used by the Greeks, Romans, Egyptians and others throughout history. That is as about as far as I dived into it, with a glance at the modern uses.

I can't answer that. I looked at the FDA laws and their is not a part which specifically answers your question. I am unsure if salt expires and why it needs an expiration date other than maybe it is considered (the way you purchase it) as a fresh food product..similar to milk and eggs and such. Here is the FDA guidlines, maybe you will have more success than I did in finding the answer..

Thanks for saying you like my avatar... I've changed it since..lol . But I appreciate it and I'm glad you liked the thread.

Salt has a ton of history. Really, I just touched a very tiny bit in this thread. For example, I never looked back to the neolithic period to see how they obtained their salt. As it is needed for survival, I'm sure they did somehow. This is just a small "taste" of information.

Thank you DC.. and thanks for taking the time to read through it.. I appreciate it.

I was unaware that salt had become so chemically polluted. You never really think about that when you go to the store to pick some up. I just always thought.. well.. just thought it was the natural thing/real deal. I guess I should be more careful of what I buy now..thank you for making me aware.

Thanks everyone for reading the thread. I appreciate the responses and thoughts ..

Hey blend57!

I read this thread when you posted it, but was in lurker mode so didn't comment at the time.
This morning I remembered something that made me want to re-read it.

A few years ago now I was watching a post-apocalyptic show (I think it was called "Jericho")...and an important factor to the group's location was the fact that they had a salt mine. At the time I didn't understand why that mattered, although it was an integral part of the story.

I have also started using the Himalayan pink salt after reading about it online. My hubby works in construction and during the summer heat waves he is prone to really painful leg cramps at night. I mixed a teaspoon of pink salt in a glass of warm water and within 30 seconds literally, the pain was gone.

I thought your thread was really interesting so wanted to say thank you. It's amazing how many little nuggets of information I've received from members here. (Also nice to read a thread with no hate and arguing, lol!)
