Indian Black mineral salt, also known as Kala Namak. According to ayurvedic medicine it has many health benifits and is used for constipation, indigestion, heartburn, bloating, flatulence, goiter, poor eyesight, hysteria and recommended for people with high blood pressure (because it is lower in sodium and does not increase sodium content in the blood). Black salt is also a Vata Dosha balancing spice. http://www.thesecretsofyoga.com/yoga-articles/dosha.html Kala Namak is valued by vegans in dishes that imitate the taste of eggs.
