Iodine free bread

What is the ingredient in making bread that has iodine?  My sisters friend has a bakery and I wanted to have him make some for me but I don't know which ingredient he shouldn't use.  Is it the salt?

Salt is an issue, but there is also iodine in some dough conditioners that are typically used in commercial (packaged) bread.  That's all I know.  I used to make my own bread without dairy and with iodine free salt.

I talked to the baker today and he said he's only using flour, yeast, and olive oil.  That should be okay.

If you haven't already, visit http://www.thyca.org for the low iodine cookbook.  It gives you wonderful guidelines on what you need to avoid and it has safe recipes for different breads.  He can read that and decifer what must be avoided.

Boy are you lucky to have a baker for a friend!!!

Yes, I'm familiar with the Thyca cookbook.  That's the only one I follow and this is my 3rd LID diet.  What I've normaly done is mainly eat fruits and vegetables with small amounts (6oz) of meat a day and some no yolks noodles.  I never even cheat when I'm on this diet and this is probably the reason that I lose weight while I'm on it.  I just wanted bread so bad.

Odd question....does regular thin spaghetti have anything in it we shouldn't have? I don't think so, but wanted to check.  I've followed it so close it's driving me crazy. It is hard to stick to. I was told no processed meats either. Chicken is injected with too much flavoring stuff, and wouldn't know what was in it....so I've been getting organic ones from the health food co-op. THEY ARE NOT CHEAP!!!  3.99/lb for a whole chicken in one store!

Do I have to be that specific? What about beef? Store bought okay? I had a friend give me some all-nat.  grass fed beef. It would be easier to just go buy it at the store though. I still have a week before RAI and a scan in 2wks, so the LID will have to last a while longer. Have to go cook/freeze some more.  I would kill for a big bag of pretzels though. Big Dutch Sourdough ones! Grilled Salmon would be nice too. Mybe I'll have that for my first regular meal. Soething to look forward to!

There are some good things in the cookbook from thyca. Stay away from the choc cakes. Not as good as I hoped, but the choc cookies are great. My kids even like them. I've alread made & eaten a couple of batches!

 Good Luck to all. Keep us posted!

I've stayed away from the regular pasta cause I was never too sure.  Perdue and Tyson chicken breast packages say they are not injected with anything so that's what I buy.  I will eat small amounts of chicken, pork, or steak with peeled cooked potatoes. 

This time around with the LID I have had such a ill stomach along with diarhea.  I'm not eating much at all.  I have my scan coming up on 12/3 so I hope there's no uptake and I can go back to normal on 12/4.

Just wanted to say, I am jealous... today is 12/5 and I am on this stinkin diet until next wed.  I cannot wait to eat anything or even have a LATTE!!! I hope your scan goes well and you eat what you want.  I am always confused as to why they put some of us on this diet with thyrogen shots, and others they don't.  Wish there was consistent info.  Best of luck to you!
