I’ve had a number of emails asking me about Vitasoy and whether it has any iodine in it.
I sent off an email to National Foods and got this response:
Thank you again for your contact regarding our Vitasoy products.
Vitasoy has an extensive range of Soy, Rice and Oat milk products on offer and we recommend consumers visit our website: http://www.vitasoy.com.au to determine which Vitasoy product best suits their individual needs.
Vitasoy Original and Vitasoy Vitality are the only two products that have Kombu added as an ingredient, and the average Iodine levels for both are less than 5 micrograms per 100mL, which is within the accepted levels as stated by National Health and Medical Research Council for iodine.
We hope this information will be of benefit to you and thank you again for contacting Vitasoy.
I have to say, this doesn’t really provide comfort for me. This really has shaken my faith in the industrial food complex (it was already shakey, Food, Inc anyone?), and I am off soy milk.
My mum warned me about soy milk 2 years ago, and I didn’t listen (yep, mother’s really do know best! Sorry mum!).
