I need to know a brand name that makes NON IODIZED SALT!!

I am looking for a brand name that makes non iodized salt. I live in Canada and it is illegal to sell non iodized salt. I need to go on a no iodine diet soon and my dad is in Florida visiting, he is looking for the salt for me and has no clue. People are pointing him towards sea salt which contains natural iodine so I cant use it. I just need a brand name so I can call him and he has a better idea of what he is going for. PLEASE HELP!!

  • Look for Kosher Salt....no additives. Diamond Crystal Brand sells it, so does Morton. Both are a coarser salt that traditional table salt but not a coarse usually as sea salt.

  • Sea salt and table salt have the same basic nutritional value — both mostly consist of two minerals — sodium and chloride. However, sea salt is often marketed as a more natural and healthy alternative. The real differences between sea salt and table salt are in their taste, texture and processing, not their chemical makeup.

    By weight, sea salt and table salt contain about the same amount of sodium chloride. Your body needs only a couple hundred milligrams (mg) a day to stay healthy, but most people get far too much — mostly from sodium in processed foods. So regardless of which type of salt you prefer, keep sodium consumption between 1,500 and 2,300 mg of sodium a day if you're a healthy adult. People with high blood pressure, African-Americans and anyone middle-aged or older should aim for the low end of that range.

  • It is ILLEGAL to sell it in Canada, I have tried no where here because it is not allowed to be sold here.
