Hang on there, you cool person who is looking to read some extremely interesting scientific information on oats and plant-based nutrition. Before you take a look at the following pages and before you proceed to click ‘YES,’ we have a disclaimer that we would like you to read here.
Iodine is a mineral known to be important for health. It's essential to the production of thyroid hormones, and also essential during pregnancy for ensuring the normal development of the baby’s brain. There is evidence that many of us may not be getting enough iodine, particularly in pregnancy and especially if avoiding certain foods (e.g. vegetarians and vegans).
We fortify our oat drinks with iodine. The level of iodine is 22.5µg/100 ml in all oat drinks (except the organic oat drinks). Oatly oat drinks are therefore rich in iodine - as well as calcium, riboflavin, vitamin B12 and vitamin D.
Oatgurt is also fortified with iodine (22.5µg/100g) - as well as calcium, vitamin B12 and vitamin D.
