Salt will last forever, but there is an expiry on the Iodine - so what? if the iodine is no longer effective, does that harm the uses of salt itself?

Also, what container? I have placed some in plastic containers and some in glass containers with a metal lid - I'm told the metal lid is a problem, so i use a waxed paper under cover and then tighten the metal lid - that seems ok?

I have about 20 lbs of salt in long term storage, all iodised table salt - enough for me. All stored in empty food containers (plastic & glass) - problems?

Thanks!!! Tom

Ok, thanks all for info - I guess what is being said is yes, iodine is lost over time, but is not in itself a problem - just less effective iodine (of which i do not care) - the salt remains good, useable table salt for as long as it is not subject to moisture.

Salt is salt,it was formed millions of years ago,it does not go bad.Get it from the ocean,a mountain,or a hole in the ground.
Seperate issue from iodine.
