- EDDI is used as an additive in pet food and cattle feed with high bioavailability.
- Used to prevent iodine deficiency, as this salt is one of the major uses of the element iodine.
- Although EDDI is generally recognized as safe (GRAS) only as a nutrient source of iodine, administration of EDDI also has preventative effects on foot rot in cattle.
