Iodine deficiency is a looming health threat across Australia as our ancient continent is critically lacking -- iodine in sea plants exceed that found in inland plants by as much as 20,000%. At least 50% of pregnant/breastfeeding women have inadequate iodine intakes and many Australian children are iodine deficient which may result in learning disabilities, poor concentration levels, lower IQ, hearing problems and a greater chance of developing ADHD. Adults require at least 150 micrograms of iodine daily or risk goiter, weight gain, lethargy, intolerance to cold, infertility, thyroid problems, increased blood cholesterol and reduced heart function. Dulse has 52mcg per gram in a healthy 'nutrient rich package'.
Which kind of Dulse is Best/ - Leaf or Flakes - The Leaf is left in whole pieces whereas the flakes are a chopped up version of the Leaf. The leaf is great to eat as is - straight out of the bag, and the flakes are good to add to your cooking or sprinkled over salads. It all depends on your personal preference!
