Iodide Powder Mixture Instructions and Dosage
For powder purchases online (Just Google "Potassium Iodide powder" for many sources:
"To prepare a saturated solution of potassium iodide, fill a bottle about 60% full of crystalline
or granular potassium iodide. (A 2-fluid-ounce bottle, made of dark glass and having a solid,
non-metallic, screwcap top, is a good size for a family. About 2 ounces of crystalline or
granular potassium iodide is needed to fill a 2-fluid-ounce bottle about 60% full.) Next, pour
safe, room-temperature water into the bottle until it is about 90% full. Then close the bottle
tightly and shake it vigorously for at least 2 minutes. Some of the solid potassium iodide
should remain permanently undissolved at the bottom of the bottle; this is proof that the
solution is saturated.
Experiments with a variety of ordinary household medicine droppers determined that 1 drop of
a saturated solution of potassium iodide contains from 28 to 36 mg of potassium iodide."
Two ounces of granulated Potassium Iodide (KI), mentioned above, is about 56.7 grams.
Also, from the above, an adult would be wanting four drops of the saturated solution as an
expedient dosage. This would amount to between 112 to 144 mg of Potassium Iodide (KI) total.
Remember, 130 mg of KI is an adult daily dose and half that (65 mg) is a child (age 3-12) daily

Less than saturated Potassium Iodide (KI) solutions, when properly mixed, should give even more
accurate dosages because there is more solution overall to be measured out per dose. For
example, mixing and dissolving exactly 26 grams of Potassium Iodide USP into a one liter bottle of
water, for example, produces 1000 ml of Potassium Iodide solution with a strength of 130 mg for
each 5 ml of that Potassium Iodide (KI) solution. There are 200 of those 5 ml servings in that 1000
ml (1 liter). 5 ml can be easily and accurately measured out with a common graduated medicine
dropper. 5 ml is also equal to one measuring teaspoon.
Following the above formula, you could make up most any size and/or strength Potassium Iodide
(KI) solution needed with accurate scales and enough bulk Potassium Iodide (KI).
