Potassium Iodide (KI) is used for a variety of things, but it’s best known for use in nuclear accidents and emergencies as instructed by the CDC. While pills are the traditional method, pure crystals mixed with water provide protection for the thyroid because it’s much faster. The problem is crystals are bulk packaged in bottles and large pouches which requires users to figure out dosing while an emergency is happening and that makes it easy to make mistakes and add to panic. Bulk packaging is also more susceptible to the elements and faster degradation when stored over time.

Each pre-measured pouch contains up to 100 Adult Doses when poured into a 16 FL OZ Bottle of water. These vacuum sealed foil pouches provide 13,000mg of pre-measured 99.8% Min USP / ACS grade Potassium Iodide. The crystals are pulverized so they can be instantly added to a typical 16 ounce bottle of water to create a KI solution that provides up to 100 adult doses and can also be used for kids. The dosing instructions follow CDC guidelines for using potassium iodide in radiation emergencies based on age. These pouches keep KI stable for up to ten years with a suggested 5-year replenishment schedule.

Potassium Iodide should only be used during a verified nuclear emergency within an active fallout zone. It’s suggested to get a few 5ml oral syringes to keep with the pouch for dosing final liquid (KI) solution. It’s also suggested to keep a sealed 16 bottle of water with each pouch as well. Pouches should be kept in multiple places in case of emergencies such as your home, car, camper, office, etc. These pouches are a must for any emergency survival kit.

These aren’t just for use in case of nuclear war, dirty bombs or terrorism, but also for people who live near nuclear power plants or research facilities that could be damaged by earthquakes or industrial nuclear accidents of any kind. The government actually stockpiles pills for the public in areas near nuclear facilities, but good luck trying to get some in an emergency. These pouches solve all the above problems for the easiest and fastest way to use potassium iodide. One pouch is enough to protect a small neighborhood.

Here’s how KI works: The thyroid gland cannot tell the difference between stable and radioactive iodine. It will absorb both. KI (potassium iodide) blocks radioactive iodine from entering the thyroid. When a person takes KI, the stable iodine in the medicine gets absorbed by the thyroid. Because KI contains so much stable iodine, the thyroid gland becomes “full” and cannot absorb any more iodine whether stable or radioactive for the 24 hours.

Warnings: Only use in a verified Nuclear Emergency as reported by your local officials! Keep out of reach from children. Women who are breastfeeding should take only one dose of KI (potassium iodide) if they have been internally contaminated with (or are likely to be internally contaminated with) radioactive iodine. They should be prioritized to receive other protective action measures.Infants (particularly newborns) should receive a single dose of KI. More than a single dose may lead to later problems with normal development. Other protective measures should be used. Do not take if allergic to iodine.

Directions: During a verified nuclear fallout emergency, open pouch and mix into a 16 floz bottle of water. Shake until dissolved and dose with teaspoon, dose cup or syringe. After thoroughly mixing in water use final solution as follows every 24 hours:

Adult Dose (18 and up or over 150 lbs) - 5 ml / 1 tsp = 130 mg

Child Dose (3 – 17 yrs) – 2.5 ml / 1/2 tsp = 65 mg

Under 3 yrs – 1.25 ml / 1/4 tsp = 32 mg

Under 2 months should only get 1 dose ONLY.

Ingredients: 13 grams (13,000mg) of 99.8% (KI) Potassium Iodide UPS.

NOTE: After solution has been made by mixing with water, discard left over solution after 7 days. Store water solution in refrigerator if possible or at least keep in cool dark area.

NOTICE: For people who seem confused - This pouch makes 100 adult doses of potassium iodide for emergency use only. The pouch contains 13 Grams of Potassium Iodide (KI) which equals (13,000 Milligrams). One adult dose of (KI) is only 130mg. During a verified nuclear emergency, you pour the entire contents of the pouch (13,000 mg) into a 16 OZ bottle of water and shake until dissolved. Then use the water based liquid solution of KI to give out doses. Adults get (one teaspoon) of the liquid solution per 24 hours. The doses are on package and at the bottom of this listing for adults, kids and infants.
