The Low-Iodine Diet (LID) is a little easier to follow if you know what ingredients to avoid on the food labels.  Iodine is in so many things that it is really hard to go food shopping without some good information.  It is not as simple as looking for the word iodized salt (althought that is one of them).  So here is a list of some food ingredient items to AVOID during the LID time.

  • Iodized Salt
  • Sea Salt
  • Iodine
  • Iodate
  • Iodide
  • Alginate
  • Algi
  • Agar
  • Carrageenan
  • Nori
  • Red dye #3
