Dairy-free io­dine sources

BBC Good Food - - Health -

In the UK, dairy prod­ucts are one of our main sources of io­dine, which is vi­tal to me­tab­o­lism. Re­search sug­gests that plant-based milks, such as soya, al­mond, oat and rice, con­tain only 2% of the io­dine found in cow’s milk. If you don’t eat dairy, al­ter­na­tive sources in­clude fish – in par­tic­u­lar white fish and shell­fish. Seaweed is a con­cen­trated source, but can pro­vide too much, so it’s best to limit in­take to once a week, es­pe­cially dur­ing preg­nancy.
