Potassium iodate is an oxidizing agent used to prepare 2-styrylchromones from o-hydroxy-ω-cinnamylideneacetophenones by oxidative cyclization. It is used to iodinate table salt in order to prevent iodine deficiency. It is an active ingredient in baby formula milk. As a maturing agent, it is used in baking. Furthermore, it is involved in the protection of radioactive iodine accumulation in the thyroid.
