So, what is sodium iodide?

Sodium iodide is a chemical compound with the formula NaI. It is a white crystalline solid that is highly soluble in water, making it a popular ingredient in many food products. Sodium iodide is often added to table salt to prevent iodine deficiency, a common health problem that can lead to thyroid disorders. In the food industry, sodium iodide is also used as a preservative, antioxidant, and color fixative. Additionally, it is a source of iodine for the human body, which is essential for the production of thyroid hormones that regulate metabolism and growth.
