Dear Violet
All table salt sold in SA nowadays is iodated. You can possibly ask your chemist if he has any noniodated table salt. Also all seafoods, fish, kelp, seaweed and vegetables grown near the sea will have a high iodine content. As the SA Food Tables do not list the iodine content of our foods, I can't say if Marmite contains any, but would doubt it.
