Thanks

I use sea salt that has naturally occuring iodine in it. I got it online. I can get up and look up the name if you're interested... it's on the other side of the house.

We use RealSalt, which has the naturally occurring iodine in it, but I don't think that's enough to get what you need every day.

Hmm, I don't know...But I'm a MN momma of a child with a corn allergy. Couldn't resist saying hi! We figure if we eat shrimp about once a month, that should cover us for iodine.

Most iodized salt has some sort of anti-caking agent, often a corn derivative.  Check out your salt- I bet you it has more than just "salt" in the ingredients!  ;)

Shoot, it did. Pure sea salt for me, until I can get Real Salt again...

I have sea salt, not sure how it compares to celtic but I will get celtic.  Looks like if you eat 1/4 tsp of Celtic Brand grey sea salt (I eat at least that much) per day you get the rda for iodine (and I realized the us rda is probably low).

You just need to look at the ingredient list. If it has anything other than "salt" listed, then chances are that it does have corn.
