Food sources of iodine? ( Not seaweed)

Answered on September 12, 2014
Created March 22, 2013 at 4:34 PM

I cannot have seaweed because it is not on SCD.

However, I am thinking of having some cauliflower and it is a known goitrogen. So how do I balance out the goitrogenic properties of cauliflower without consuming seaweed?

I was thinking clams, but they are so expensive.

Thank you.

Not sure, you could be right, but most doctors agree on SCD and that's I am trying to follow.

Understood, but you're probably getting more residual polysaccharides in "safe" foods than you'd get in a dose of kelp granules that also provides 100% DV of iodine.

Thanks, but I would rather have food sources. I can have like 4 clams per week.

SCD explains that some food sources are fine for SIBO (veggies mostly) and some are not (grains, chocolate, some cheeses, seaweed - you can check them out by googling legal/illegal list. My doc told me to follow SCD for SIBO prevention and I am trying. If I eat seaweed on a regular, I am scared that SIBO will come back and I don't want to take any more antibiotics.

Polysaccharides = carbs. And assuming that kept is 100% carbohydrates, you still get an incredible about of iodine (many days worth) per gram of sea vegetable. Of course, you could be sensitive to even a tiny amount, but it sounds like you don't really know that you are.

Lugol's potassium iodide is an oral option if seafood is too expensive.

You had to read stuff on the internet to find out you're not a doctor?

No, it is not about carbs, they have polysaccharides or something like that - they are illegal on SCD diet.

If you don't want to eat seaweed you can eat things that eat seaweed. Cod and shrimp are also pretty good sources. There's iodine in eggs too, but you are going to have to eat a WHOLE lotta eggs.

If you are really low, supplementing and/or using/drinking table salt is better than being deficient.

You'd need such a small amount of sea veggies to get a more than adequate dose of iodine I would think, you're suggesting that that level of carbohydrate would be problematic?

From what I can tell from reading the internet, I'm not a doctor:

No food source of iodine is going to be easier or cheaper than supplementing it.
If you are iodine deficient then no food source is going to catch you up.
