PostSubject: Price of garam yodium?   Sun Nov 14, 2010 6:51 pm

My sister-in-law lives on the slopes of Rinjani near Gondang and suffers from a large goiter, like many others in the area, and more than likely due to a lack of iodine in the diet. This can be helped by using iodized salt (garam yodium) AND eating less cassava (singkong in bahasa, or ubi kayu in Sasak). Cassava is a cheap food grown and eaten by many locals, unfortunately it stops the body from being able to absorb iodine and leads to goiter and thyroid disfunction.

Anyway,, my sister-in-law, being extremely poor, buys salt from the local market - which has not been processed with iodine added. We want to figure out how much per year it would cost to supply iodized salt. The cassava is a bigger problem. Like most poor Indonesians, rice is only eaten when there is money around - otherwise one eats cassava, sweet potato and other carb sources. Telling her not to eat cassava is like telling her not to eat. But at least with some iodine in the diet it might help - and maybe she can eat more potato and less cassava.

So hence the question - anyone know the price of garam yodium per kilo? or per packet if you can tell me the packet size.

Many thanks
