Thyroid Thyroid Iodine Organification

I'm getting mixed up on the types of iodide/iodine by different sources but my question is: Is it inorganic IODIDE that gets converted to organic IODINE
or is it inorganic IODINE that gets converted to organic IODIDE. Thanks

In the thyroid gland, IodINE is converted to IodIDE by oxidation. (according to Kaplan Physiology notes)

I just realized why you're confused lol. Goljan and Kaplan Pharm say that IodIDE is converted to IodINE by oxidation. Now I'm confused too.
