Iodised PDV is suitable for any application where supplementary iodine is required. An approved iodine containing compound is added to standard PDV in line with the recommendations of the World Health Organisation and European Union. The flexibility of the manufacturing process enables the additive (potassium iodate) content to be adjusted to meet specific customer requirements or national legislation. Please contact British Salt with your enquiry.
Due to the nature of the manufacturing process, we do have minimum volume requirements for iodised salt. Additionally, these products are manufactured to order which may mean longer lead times than our Standard grades. Please contact British salt with your enquiry.
