An Iodine Rich Drinking Water named as “Tubig Talino” was developed by DOST-Food and Nutrition Research Institute (DOST-FNRI) to control and prevent Iodine Deficiency Disorders (IDD) among Filipinos. Tubig Talino is a purified or ordinary potable water mixed with Water Plus I2 that may be consumed to improve iodine intake of Filipinos resulting to better health.

According to DOST-FNRI, a 5ml of Water Plus I2 can make 20 liters of Tubig Talino that can meet 33% of the iodine daily requirement of the body.

The technology is now offered to MSMEs most especially those involved in water refilling station businesses as an additional business opportunity at a very low cost. MSMEs who are interested to avail the technology can just contact DOST-MIMAROPA at 8837-3755/ 09063403967 or email us at official@mimaropa.dost.gov.ph
