The purpose of this study was to increase the iodine content of traditional salt after fortification of iodine with potassium iodate spray. In addition, this study also aims to determine the NaCl content and water content of traditional salt after potassium iodate fortification is carried out. This research is also expected to provide an alternative solution to increase the iodine content of salt by fortification of potassium iodate. And hopefully this research can help the government in handling cases of Iodine Deficiency Disorder in Indonesia. The treatments used were the addition of KIO3 solution with different weight of traditional salt P1 (50 gram traditional salt : 3 ml KIO3 solution), P2 (33,33 gram traditional salt : 3 ml KIO3 solution) dan P3 (25 gram traditional salt : 3 ml KIO3 solution). Potassium iodate fortification in traditional salt affects iodine and NaCl levels. Fortification of 3 ml potassium iodate with a salt weight of 25 grams (P3) produced the highest iodine content with an average of 64.74 ppm, an average NaCl content of 86.14 %, and an average water content of 3.7%.
