Iodization


Salt is a vital ingredient for the human body. As a micronutrient it is essential for normal physiological functioning. It thus becomes an excellent carrier for iodine, a vital and essential micronutrient required in small quantities, deficiency of which can have serious implications on physical and mental development. Fortification of salt with iodine is in line with United Nations Sustained Elimination of Iodine Deficiency programme across the world and specifically Africa.
