So, what is iodized cooking salt?

Iodized cooking salt is a vital ingredient in every kitchen, comprising of sodium chloride and a small amount of iodine. This type of salt is processed to contain iodine, an essential mineral that is not produced by the human body. Iodine is essential for the proper functioning of the thyroid gland, which regulates metabolism, growth, and development. Iodized cooking salt is commonly used for seasoning food during cooking, baking, or as a table salt. Its distinct flavor enhances the taste of dishes, making it a popular choice for chefs and home cooks alike. With the added benefit of providing the necessary daily iodine intake, iodized cooking salt is a convenient and practical choice for maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
