Lake Rock Salt Making Process

Step 1

A semi-porous soil pad is prepared as a salt pan and worked upon to make it stable and attain high pH level.

Step 2

Salt water (brine) from the Sambhar lake is collected in the pans and then followed up with sub-soil brine. This process of feeding is repeated thrice.

Step 3

The unique algae present in the water starts giving the salt collected in the pans its pink colour, naturally enriches it with iodine and adds to its pH level.

Step 4

The salt crystals are harvested from the pans and sundried for 9-12 months, to remove the excess moisture content from the salt.

Step 5

Finally, we get the Kshaar Lake salt in crystalline form and is sent to the plant to be packed in bags.
