Health Benefits of Vanilla & Himalayan Pink Salt

Health Benefits of Vanilla & Himalayan Pink Salt

After being busy in the kitchen, we are thrilled to have finally shared with you our four new keto granolas. From crunchy peanut butter to vibrant raspberries, each is as delicious as the next.

If you haven’t guessed it already, at keto hana we are slightly ingredient obsessed. With each packet, only the highest quality, health-boosting ingredients get through. So when it came to choosing new flavours, this was no small task. We wanted to create four delicious flavours that didn’t compromise on health or ingredient quality. And we are so proud to have done just that. Starting with Vanilla and Himalayan Pink Salt in a series of four blog posts, we will be sharing our thoughts and inspirations behind each new flavour. 

Why Himalayan Pink Salt over Regular Salt?

Aside from the obvious colour difference, a fundamental difference that attracted us to Himalayan Pink Salt was the mineral value. While table salt is almost pure sodium chloride, Himalayan Pink Salt is packed full of minerals known for their health-boosting effects. 

Health Benefits of Himalayan Pink Salt…

Detoxes the body

As mentioned earlier, Himalayan Pink Salt contains tonnes of minerals, such as potassium, calcium and magnesium. These minerals are fantastic at supporting the body's natural detoxification processes, which aids the removal of bad bacteria. 

Improves Digestion 

Himalayan Salt is naturally rich in iodine. This high concentration of natural iodine makes it great at helping the body create and maintain an electrolyte balance. The result? Intestines can absorb nutrients more efficiently for easy digestion. 

Why Vanilla? 

The taste of vanilla is one of the most popular in the world and is famous for its calming, nostalgic effects. Beyond its iconic taste, vanilla sparked our attention due to the incredible health benefits of Vanillin, a plant compound found in vanilla extract and vanilla beans.
