Jugyeom, or nine times roasted bamboo salt, sometimes also known as purple bamboo salt, can cost almost $100 for an 8.5-ounce jar. To make bamboo salt, sea salt must be repeatedly roasted inside of bamboo at temperatures over 800 degrees celsius. The goal is to enrich the salt with minerals and to reduce toxicity. But depending on where you buy it, purple bamboo salt can cost more than 10 times the price of pink Himalayan salt. That labor-intensive process makes purple bamboo salt the most expensive salt in the world.

  • Hello everyone, I want to ask you something. Do you think you are a good person? Have you sinned? The Bible says that "For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God" Romans 3:23 and that "none is good, save one, that is, God" Luke 18:19. We all have sin and none of us deserve to enter heaven but because Jesus died on the cross for us he paid our debt, he paid for our sin. I only ask of you today is to repent of your sins and trust in Jesus. I don't know what you are going through but you don't have suffer alone, allow Jesus to take perfect control, I must say that it won't be easy but the end result is worth it, so return to the Father, before it is too late. Guys there is a heaven and there is a hell, God has given us life and death choose one. Please choose life.

  • I'm Korean and want to rectify some of the misleading information mentioned on this video. Even here is Korea, only superstitious old people who believes in shits like 'Chinese medicine' and its derivative nonsenses are the only consumers of these products. I personally favor Morton Kosher salt for the sake of flavor and talking about flavor, bamboo salt tastes bitter and is not suitable for seasoning most of your dishes. Although they claim it does, but bamboo salt is not at all proven to be special in terms of nutrition and medicinal effect compared to other salts.
