What is so great about Himalayan crystal salt?
Himalayan crystal salt is an ancient pure salt that has been compressed naturally over time in the Himalayan Mountains, to form a crystal matrix. All the minerals in the salt are attached in a structure that makes them easily accessible to our cells. Their small size gives them access to the cells in a form that can be easily assimilated and metabolized by the body.
Why do they use Nutritional yeast?
Nutritional yeast is valued because it is a concentrated source of protein, B complex vitamins, minerals, and because of its creamy cheese like flavour. It is easily digestible and contains all the essential amino acids. In fact, it is considered a super food because the nutrients are very concentrated (1 or 2 tablespoons is a sensible serving). It requires no refrigeration on its own and has a long shelf-life. Since it is not a live yeast, it has no fermenting or leavening power. Nutritional yeast is grown on molasses for the purpose of a food supplement and has a pleasant, cheese-like flavour, very low sodium, and is nutrient dense.
