Question About Low Iodine Diet

Recommended Posts

So I'm thinking of starting this low iodine diet. I notice that my body starts itching a bit after my mother cooked up some veggies and beans with some Morton's salt in them.

I'm not having any problems with fresh fruits and veggies, but as far as protein goes... does fresh chicken and dried beans in plastic bags have any salt in them? Or can I cook them right off the bat without any worries?

Iodized salt has dextrose in it to keep it from clumping. You might want to check and see if you have a sensitivity to corn instead of the iodine.

As for fresh chicken and dried beans - those should be salt free, unless the chicken you get is injected with any type of solution. You might check with the butcher to be safe.

Real salt is iodine free. I actually have my own little S&P shakers that I carry with me because of the dextrose in table salt. :)

Good luck!


Gluten, Dairy, Soy, Corn, Coffee, Caffeine, Pork Freeeeeee

So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.

I know iodine is necessary to keep the thyroid balanced, so careful not to go too low. There are warning signs if you iodine slips too low.

Sea food will have salt in it. You may want to check your genetic history for skin problems, my mother has egzema and eating certain foods irritates her skin right away, she also has celiac disease. My grandmother has rosasia, her skin is irritated after eating certain foods, she doesn't have celiac disease or gluten intolerance.

Hope that's a bit of helpful.
