Almond Milk Lacking Iodine

Last week, the Courier Mail published the attached story about the iodine content of almond milk.

To protect your thyroid health, it is important to ensure you have a diet enriched with iodine. So dairy, eggs, seafood, bread (which includes iodised salt) and iodised salt are all ways to ensure you are receiving enough daily iodine through foods.

For pregnant and lactating women, it is essential they include iodine in their daily diet, to protect the pregnancy, and the growth and development of the baby. A pregnancy supplement, including at least 150mcgs of iodine daily, is also essential for women who are trying to conceive, pregnant or breastfeeding. Ensuring their thyroid function is tested and adequate is also just as important.
