Milk Substitutes Increase Risk of Iodine Deficiency
A glass of milk-alternative drink contains 2mcg of iodine which is a very small proportion of the adult recommended iodine intake of 150mcg/day. A research team from the University of Surrey examined the iodine content of 47 milk-alternative drinks such as soy, almond, coconut, oats, rice, hemp and hazelnut. The iodine content of milk-alternatives was compared with that of cow''s milk.
