Himalayan Crystal Salt

Here is an excellent summary by Dr. Joseph Mercola on the value of Himalyan Crystal Salt:

"The more you can move toward a diet of whole foods in their natural state, the healthier you'll be — whether it's veggies, meat, dairy products, or salt. If you are a protein type, you will need more salt than your fellow carbohydrate types.

Given that salt is absolutely essential to good health, I highly recommend switching to my favorite unrefined salt, an all-natural source from the Himalayas.

This salt is very special — it is completely pure, having spent many thousands of years maturing under extreme tectonic pressure, far away from exposure to impurities, so it isn't polluted with the heavy metals and industrial toxins of today. And it's minimally processed — hand-mined and hand-washed.

Himalayan salt contains 84 trace minerals from our prehistoric seas, and its crystalline structure actually stores vibrational energy, which is restorative to your body.

The crystal salt from the Himalayas does not burden your body as refined salts do.

It is very difficult for your body to absorb too much crystal salt since there are effective feedback loops that regulate this process. Natural crystal salt always promotes a healthful balance and does not contribute to high blood pressure like refined table salt.

And it's the most delicious salt you'll ever find!" 

Himalayan Pink Crystal Salt is an important ingredient in our Blackbird Cacao Fudge Truffles - enjoy!

Blackbird was recently invited on to a panel for Social Media PR for Food and Beverages: Best Practices Workshop. 

"Veteran food and beverage communicators and social media experts share their experiences in creating high-impact social media marketing."

Blackbird, as a small family business, made the point by our our presence and said so for the record, that the Internet is the great equalizer evidenced by our sitting along side General Mills and Taco Bell! We were singled out for our creative use of video as a very powerful and effective tool in sharing our ideas with our community!
