Different types of salt have varying health benefits, but the best types of salt have a high concentration of minerals and a low - or zero - concentration of toxins. So, what is the sea salt with the most minerals?

The Top 3 Mineral-Rich Salts

Himalayan pink salt, Celtic sea salt, and bamboo salt are some of the most popular options for healthy, natural, and mineral-rich salt. Each has its own unique flavor and texture, and all include minerals that provide a wide variety of benefits. Here's how these three salts stack up:

  • Himalayan pink salt is harvested from a region in the Himalayan Mountains and is often used for its therapeutic properties. This salt is very rich in minerals, including iron, calcium, manganese, and potassium. 
  • Celtic sea salt comes from the seas around France and is known for its gray color and coarse texture. It is rich in minerals, including calcium, zinc, copper, and potassium, and it is sometimes used for its therapeutic properties.
  • Bamboo salt, also known as Korean bamboo salt, was first made by Buddhist monks more than 1,000 years ago. It’s made from evaporated seawater from the South Korean coast and roasted in bamboo pillars, which infuse minerals into the salt. It contains 70+ minerals, including calcium, sodium, zinc, iron, sulfur, and potassium. However, unlike Himalayan Salt and other sea salts, Bamboo salt does not contain toxins. Due to the high heat roasting process, heavy metals, microplastics and other toxins are eliminated, making bamboo salt the purest mineral salt for consumption.
