O. Badran, W. Qaraqash and S. Gamah    

Abstract: A national survey was conducted in Jordan in 1991 to determine the prevalence of iodine deficiency disorders. A sample of 2679 children aged 8-10 years was screened and the results revealed that 37.7% of the study sample were suffering from iodine deficiency disorders. Iodization of salt is the preferred approach for supplementation. The present study was conducted to identify the effect of iodized salt on the colour, taste and consistency of traditionally prepared pickles. It was concluded that iodized salt has no effect on any of the sensory characteristics of traditionally prepared pickles.
