I just read that iodine may be an issue for DH suffers, potentially causing flares.

So my guess would be that if you don't suffer from DH, then it's probably ok.

If you *do* suffer from DH, then I think I'd be switching! ;)

Sensitivity to iodine is rare, but not unknown. Some people with DH are sensitive to iodine.

Nevertheless, there is no gluten in salt, whether it is iodized or not. Salt is sodium chloride (NaCl), and iodine is added as traces of sodium iodide (NaI) or potassium iodide (KI). None of these contain gluten, or are even organic compounds.

I use sea salt, it has a superior source of iodine which is essential for our health, check out Lugol's Iodine if you are curious.

Have a great day. :)

Please correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think sea salt has iodine of any sort added to it. It does contain naturally occurring metals/minerals in trace amounts however, and so may or may not contain elemental iodine. Elemental iodine is toxic in higher doses though.

In the water quality laboratory, we use Lugol's Solution in a test of lake water for Phytoplankton. It stains & preserves the cell bodies. It looks like the old "Monkey's Blood" mercurochrome they put on cuts when I was growing up.

Iodine is bad for people who have autoimmune thyroid conditions. The thyroid is a magnet for iodine... it can cause further damage to an already-damaged organ.
