Indigo Salt

What is
Indigo salt

Yama Salt is the innovator and the only provider of Indigo salt in the world.

For more than a year, we have extracted and analyzed 100s of rock salts samples from around the globe in order to discover the most suitable natural rock salt for human consumption.

99.2% of the world population consumes more than twice as much salt as compared to the RDI guidelines suggested by the WHO.
Sodium over-consumption is associated with huge health risks, therefore WHO is forcing new regulations, to reduce sodium consumption by 30% by 2025.
This agenda has been unsuccessful because of many reasons including the existing alternative options such as potassium chloride taste bitter, and metallic, and are not organic.
The true challenge is to provide a salt compound that contains exponentially lower sodium consistency and higher trace mineral counts while preserving the salty taste intact.

Indigo salt is made out of rare rock salt ores that contain up to 50% less sodium concentration while tasting impeccably like the regular table salt, we all eat every day. In addition, Indigo salt are supplying your body with a substantial amount of 13 essential trace minerals found in Indigo salt including calcium, iodine, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, potassium, and zinc. 

100 % natural

Indigo Salt is 100 % organic, unrefined, unprocessed, and unlike the majority of sea salts devoid of microplastics and other residues found in the oceans.
The secret of Indigo salt’s novelty lies in how we detect, handpick and blend the most nutritious rock salt ores in a scientific proportion.

More than 30 years of research suggest that salts with a balanced ratio of potassium to sodium (~40% – ~60%)  are the best replacement to regular salt for daily human consumption.

By consuming Indigo salt on a daily basis, you can get as much of that amazing salty flavor, we all love, rest assured that you are not facing any of the health risks associated with regular salt.

 

FAQs

What is the difference between Indigo salt and regular table salt?

What is the difference between Indigo salt and regular table salt?

The major difference is in the great health benefits stemming from high counts of naturally occurring potassium (more than 30% of the total mass) found in the Indigo Salt rocks, replacing the heavy sodium content other salts contain.

A typical table salt most of us use at home has been heavily processed, bleached, and heated up to 1200 degrees. In this process, all the healthy trace elements have been stripped leaving you with nothing but high sodium content and additives. Indigo salt on the contrary is 100 % organic, unrefined, unprocessed, and unlike the majority of sea salts devoid of microplastics and other residues found in the oceans.

Why is potassium So important? Why do we need so much potassium anyways?

Why is potassium So important? Why do we need so much potassium anyways?

Extensive research shows that nearly 98% of all adults in Western countries are not meeting the recommended daily intake of potassium.

potassium plays an essential role in several body processes. It is found in about 80% of the muscle cells of your body. It has an important function in the conduction of nerve impulses. Furthermore, together with sodium, it plays a role in regulating proper water balance in the body. However, very few people consume enough of it.

Where is the indigo color coming from?

Where is the indigo color coming from?

Indigo salt’s fascinating color appears due to the fusion of several different Sylvinites that have a wide range of colors themselves, anything from Dark purple to light blue and even gray in color that when combined looks indigo.
These natural sylvinite’s colors come from an optical illusion, due to the movement of tectonic plates about 100-300 million years ago. The result was the formation of narrow seams of different sorts of sylvinites saturated with potassium through ancient salt lakes that are today directly used and combined to create Indigo salt.

Why is it not safe to eat sea salt?

Why is it not safe to eat sea salt?

Our oceans are extremely polluted nowadays. Oil wastes, industrial residues, and even nuclear waste are polluting the ocean waters every day. In a study published in Environmental Science and Technology, researchers examined table salts from 39 different salt brands. Of the table salts tested, only three were completely free of plastic, the remaining table salt tested contained microplastic. Almost all sea salts go through a heavy refining process which we explained earlier about. Now it is up to you to make the decision, is it good for you to eat sea salt?

Should I eliminate adding salt to my food altogether?

Should I eliminate adding salt to my food altogether?

Absolutely not, sodium deficiency can have devastating effects on the body. The fact is, we are all way overloaded with sodium and very deficient in potassium. So, By replacing table salt with a better alternative, that is rich in potassium and low in sodium, not only can you enjoy a flavourful meal but also keep your body nourished with the needed minerals.

What is the difference between Indigo Salt and other industrially synthesized edible KCl (potassium chlorides) out there?

In the case of industrially manufactured food grade potassium chloride, the extremely high saturation (99%) of potassium, makes them taste metallic and chemical to our palettes. Indigo salt, on the other hand, is an unprocessed balanced blend of minerals designed to deliver a perfect ratio of potassium to sodium to our bodies while tasting delicious.

What’s the difference between indigo salt and Himalayan salt?

What’s the difference between indigo salt and Himalayan salt?

Himalayan salt has managed to gain great publicity in the past few years, people tend to mistake the pinkness of the salt for its high nutritional value, whereas in reality, the color comes from high concentrations of Iron Oxide that is very toxic. We have tested the mineral composition of many different varieties of pink salts from different sources. In contrast to what is advertised out there, They all had more than 97% sodium chloride saturation and minuscule traces of useful minerals that would in the total amount for less than 1% of the RDA (Recommended Dietary Allowances). In our observation, the number of harmful substances sometimes exceeded the beneficial ones.
With 30% potassium consistency and as low as 15% sodium, Indigo salt has 30 to 100 times more healthy mineral saturation than any pink salt in the world.

This is actually a big sign of authenticity. Just like any other crystal, once crushed, Indigo salt changes most of its main color to white but none of the properties are deducted. However, you should still be able to see tiny particles of Indigo color salt throughout the blend.

Where do the sylvinite rock salts of Indigo Salt come from?

Where do the sylvinite rock salts of Indigo Salt come from?

From the depth of several different salt mines around the world traces of a range of Blue, purple, and gray coloured sylvinites rock salts are continuously looked for by our specialists. Once detected, the vein is carefully examined using XRF technology to ensure the purity of the rocks and potassium saturation. With each extraction, we get a very small portion of salt that is up to our promised standards. To keep up with our promise we must constantly select and blend the acquired rock salts to get the right balance between flavor, potassium saturation, and purity.

How does Indigo Salt taste?

How does Indigo Salt taste?

Indigo Salt tastes almost exactly like regular table salt. We conducted several different tests aiming at understanding flavor and how people react to it better. The people being tested were unable to see the difference between the indigo salt and regular table salt if the salt was used in the cooking process. If the people knew that they were being tested and we poured Indigo salt on top of different objects directly such as a Tomato or a cucumber, then they could see that Indigo salt has a smoother texture and is definitely less pungent compared to the regular salt.
In simple words, Indigo Salt’s unique flavor is related to sylvinite crystals structure where potassium, sodium, and chlorides are naturally intertwined creating a wholesome flavor that can not be resembled in factory-made products.
