Selection Of A Good Type Of Salt?
Hallodok … I want to ask … r nWe better to consume lots of iodized salt or not?
Hello Zhima, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Iodine (iodine) is one of the important minerals needed by our body. Iodine cannot be produced by the body so we must consume iodine from outside to meet the needs of iodine every day. The recommended consumption of iodine is 150 mcg per day for adults. Salt generally contains 45 mcg of iodine per gram, so that the needs per day can be met by consuming about half to three quarters of a teaspoon of salt every day (1 teaspoon is equivalent to 5 grams of salt).
Salt is indeed one of the most important sources of iodine, but consuming too much salt is also not good for health. Therefore, consume just enough salt, in accordance with the recommendations given.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
