Over billion humans around the world are in danger for the spectrum of issues often called "The Iodine Deficiency Disorders." 1-10% will endure cretinism; 5-30% can have a few kind of mind harm or neurological impairment and 30-70% may be hypothyroid. The motives of iodine deficiencies might be thought of from either simplistic and extra advanced views. From the leaching of iodine from soil leading to vegetation with low  Read more...

2003). Electrochemical detection of iodine was also used in conjunction with chromatographic methods, which are reported below. Electrochemical techniques found many fewer applications for the determination of total iodine in foodstuffs compared with other techniques. They are inexpensive, but their limited specificity requires careful validation of the procedures developed. On the other hand, electrochemical detection of iodine species separated by chromatographic methods seems to be well-established.

Spectrometric techniques Mass Spectrometry Various spectrometric techniques can be used for iodine determination in biological materials, including foodstuffs. Until now, mass spectrometry has been applied most extensively for this purpose. One of the first reports concerned the use of isotope dilution laser resonance ionization mass spectrometry to determine iodine in oyster tissue using the long-life 129I radioisotope to spike the samples. A detection limit of 100 ng of iodine was achieved using the procedure developed (Fasset and Murphy, 1990).

This method of organic matter destruction is involved in the official procedure of the AOAC (1980). , 2005). , 1952). , 1993). , 1996). , 2005). Automated modes of the Sandell–Kolthoff ­reaction Assay of Iodine in Foodstuffs: Methods and Applications 19 for measurement of urinary iodine using Technicon AutoAnalyzer II (AAII) systems, with either dialysis or acid digestion, were compared with a method employing manual alkaline ashing. , 1990). , 1997). Another comparison of an autoanalyzer method (AAII), where the mineralization takes place in a continuous flow manner with a manual mineralization and discoloration in a 96-well microtiter plate read by a PC-controlled photometer, was performed by Wuethrich et al.
