It's the second time I had bought this black salt. The more I use it - the more I like it. I now use it in all my dishes - including pickles. The salty taste is very strong and it hes also a taste of eggs and some odour of rotten eggs. Bat ! the eggs' taste and odour vaporizes when heated or mixed with sauce. If you want the eggy taste put it on a hot dish just before it's done. It has no sodium and it is considered to have many healthy benefits. The one I really have noticed is a better focus of my eyes. There is no control of the powder's colour. Individually, I like the darker powder more.

"Commonly known as kala namak or sanchal, black salt ... has one of the highest concentrations of fluoride and should be used sparingly and not on a regular basis as excessive fluoride is harmful to health." -- [Flavour is just one of salt's many positives - The Indian Express]

It has a nice egg aftertaste, I add it to spreads or chickpeas omletes, so if you're vegan and missing eggs it could be nice.

It actually adds egg flavor to my food.
