Author's salt from Food-fish-ka

What is interesting about our author's salt?
This is a blend of Crimean pink salt brought from Lake Sasyk-Sivash with natural herbs, spices and other products.
Crimean pink salt is a unique natural treasure that is mined on the Crimean peninsula. This salt has a delicate pink color and has exceptional taste and medicinal properties. It is formed as a result of evaporation of seawater under the influence of the sun and wind, which makes it environmentally friendly and natural.
Pink salt is very rich in minerals such as potassium, magnesium, calcium, sodium, iron and iodine, which are essential for human health. It also contains a large number of trace elements that provide its unique aroma and taste. Due to these properties, Crimean pink salt is ideal for cooking various dishes, from meat and fish to vegetable and fruit.
The use of pink salt is not limited to cooking. It is widely used in cosmetology, medicine and even in aromatherapy. In cosmetology, pink salt is used for skin care, including to combat cellulite, as well as to strengthen and grow hair. In medicine, it is used to treat and prevent various diseases, such as diseases of the joints, cardiovascular system and digestive problems.
Crimean pink salt is mined in several places on the Black Sea coast. The most famous of them are Lake Sasyk-Sivash and salt lake Inderborskoye.
The pink color of the salt is due to the content of microorganisms in it, which turn the salt pink. These microorganisms live in salt water and feed on algae, which also turn salt pink.
These microorganisms are called “pink halophilic bacteria". They live in salt lakes and seas and play an important role in the formation of pink salt.
Extraction of Crimean pink salt occurs as follows: first, seawater evaporates under the influence of the sun, then the remaining water flows into special pools, where it evaporates completely. After that, the salt is collected and sent for processing.
Lake Sasyk-Sivash has a pink color because of the algae that breed in the lake. These algae secrete a pigment that turns the water pink.
The peak algal bloom in Lake Sasyk-Sivash occurs in the summer months.
What is the difference between the Author's salt from Food-fish-ka and ordinary salt?
Pink salt from Lake Sasyk-Sivash differs from ordinary salt in that it contains a pink pigment that gives it a pink color. This pigment is formed as a result of the vital activity of microorganisms living in the salt water of the lake. In addition, pink salt contains more minerals and trace elements that are beneficial to health.
Salt is important in the history of mankind, as it was one of the first products that people began to use to preserve food. Salt was also used as currency, especially in ancient civilizations such as Rome and Greece. In medieval Europe, salt was so expensive that workers in salt mines received high salaries and had special privileges. In some countries, such as India, salt is still subject to taxation.
