So, what is iodized salt?

Iodized salt is a common kitchen staple that has been fortified with iodine, an essential mineral that plays a vital role in thyroid function and overall health. This type of salt is produced by spraying potassium iodate or iodide onto natural or refined salt crystals, ensuring that each grain contains a uniform amount of iodine. Iodine deficiency can lead to serious health problems, including goiter and developmental delays, making iodized salt an important addition to the diet of people around the world. In addition to its health benefits, iodized salt also enhances the flavor of food and can be used in a wide range of culinary applications.
