  Abstract:  

Iodine plays an important biochemical role in the synthesis of thyroid hormones, the iodine deficiency producing the increase of thyroid gland volume and the presence of goiter. The daily iodine intake need can be provided by drinking water and food. The aim of this study is to determine the iodine level in mineral waters and tap water. The iodine in mineral waters was quantitatively determined by Sandell-Kolthoff method. The concentration of iodine in the studied mineral waters shows a panel of values, being of particular interest for physicians and population as well.
