What are the best sources of iodine?


People who enjoy eating seafood on a near-daily basis have a good chance of meeting their daily iodine needs because they will often be able to get 50% of more of those needs from the seafood alone. A single serving of dairy foods on the same day might move this percentage up closer to 75%, and other foods would be able to make up the remainder.
For people who completely avoid seafood in their meal plan, iodine needs become a little bit trickier to meet.
