Iodine in milk

A simple, precise and accurate automatic technique based on indirect atomic absorption spectrometry can determine total iodine concentration in milk products and so might be used in improving quality control for infant formula milk, for instance, as well as in studies of this essential micronutrient. Researchers at the University of Santiago de Compostela, in Spain, have demonstrated iodine determination in the concentration range 0.011 to 0.35 micrograms per milliliter at a rate of seventeen samples per hour.
