Since I have a thyroid issue I am always reading up on how we can help keep our thyroids healthy. Iodine has been shown to be crucial to the health of the thyroid, and I know that you can buy iodized salt at the grocery store and that some foods contain it and of course multivitamins can have it too.
So here's my question that I'm hoping you can help me with--do processed foods and/or fast foods contain iodized or non-iodized salt? I know they are salty, that's for sure! But is it at least the iodized form that will help our thyroids? I'm not sure if there's a cost difference between the two that would factor in.
It would be great if we could have an idea of how much iodine we were getting in our daily diets and if processed foods contain it then we might be getting more than we realize. Does anyone know? Thanks so much, Michelle
