So, what is sal iodado?

Sal iodado, also known as iodized salt, is a type of table salt that has been fortified with iodine. Iodine is a mineral that is essential for the proper functioning of the thyroid gland, which helps regulate the body's metabolism. A deficiency in iodine can lead to goiter, hypothyroidism, and mental impairment, especially in pregnant women and young children. Sal iodado provides a simple and effective way to ensure adequate iodine intake, as it can be easily incorporated into one's daily diet. Additionally, sal iodado has the same taste and texture as regular salt, making it a popular choice in many households.
