My hubs & I think Glutino's pretzels are absolutely wonderful BUT there's a problem when we need to be low iodine as Glutino's uses sea salt which of course contains iodine.

We just discovered Snyder's has come out with some certified gluten-free products. I called this morning 1-800-233-7125 ext. 21410 to check & see what kind of salt is used. They said non-iodized. YAY! So both their gluten-free pretzel sticks & the mini pretzels are made with non iodized salt.

They also make gluten-free tortilla chips but the ingredients list states sea salt so beware of those if you need to be low iodine.

Why is Sea Salt so bad when it doesn't contain Iodine?

Hey Squirmy,

Snyder's is gluten-free & low iodine???? Amazing! I may go get some today! :)

Yum! :P Thanks for the new info...

By the way--did I read it right regarding staying on the low iodine for two weeks? :huh: Or am I making that up in my head? B) (Or "kidding myself--either way, sunglasses *on*! :D

2 weeks. However, it may take more than that.Posted Image My dh is terribly sensitive to iodine & since going gluten-free, I have been low iodine more than I have been on iodine. Every time I go back on iodine, I do okay for about 2 weeks or maybe a month & then I flare again. I cut the iodine & things settle down again. And when I say I go back on iodine, I mean that I have some cheese, yogurt, a bit of mayo (egg yolks), milk, a tad of ice cream & a whole egg or two per week. I do not have potato skins, seafood, anything with carageenan, coconut of any kind, spinach, lima beans, turnip greens, water chestnuts, strawberries, watermelon. cranberries or blueberries.
There are others who have had to limit the iodine as much as I have & they had to do it for 2 years or there about. There are those like Prickly pear who only had to limit it for a short time period. I hope you will be one of those.
I have had my thyroid checked & will continue to monitor it to make sure everything is hunky dorey. The others like myself have done the same.
