If canning salt has no iodine and Koshier salt has a little iodine how does a person get enough iodine? My mother had a goiter and this is a concern.

Here is a link for a list of several foods that are naturally high in iodine.

Thanks for the link. Be careful of kelp, though. It is rich in glutamate, as most sea plants are.

Here are the four largest halogens and their relative atomic weights:

Fluorine . . 19
Chlorine . . 35.5
Bromine . . 80
Iodine . . . 127

Halogens with a lower atomic weight displace those with a higher atomic weight, but not vice-versa. So while bromine can displace iodine, bromine can't displace chlorine. But fluorine, chlorine, and bromine can ALL displace iodine.

Celtic sea salt is high in natural iodine and has no fillers or additives.
