hi mamta,

rock salt is considered ayurvedic (it does no undergo lot of processing) hence used for fasts..it also has medicinal properties..

where as common salt is not used because iodine is added to it...and its natural state is very impure.

My first thoughts on the use of sea salt were that knowing how its extracted* it could contain microscopic animal life and thats why there are problems with using it ?

* Usually by letting sea water run into bays (salt beds) that are allowed to dry out in the sun, this leaves behind the salt (but I'd guess it also leaves behind anything else that was in the water that couldn't evaporate).

Just done a search** on salt and can't find anything that mentions the above but it does mention that Table Salt is made from refining Rock Salt (and then usually has anti-caking agents and sometimes iodine added)

** www.saltworks.us/salt_info/si_gourmet_reference.asp

I wouldn't have realised there is so much variance in salt !
