<p>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.</p>

<p>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.</p>

<p>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.</p>

<br><br><p>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!  ;)</p>

<p>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).</p>

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.
