Iodine concentration of salt in Canada

Dear IGN committee,

Knowing from IDD Newsletter, Feb 2013 and previous discussion on this message board, iodine concentration in Canada’s salt is 77ug/g and ingredient is KI. May I know why iodine is in this level which is even higher than WHO recommendation and other countries? Is it due to consideration of loss during cooking or reason of KI?

Thanks very much!

Best regards,
