Effective and sustained food fortification programs contribute to improving micronutrient status of vulnerable populations when the fortified foods are consumed regularly and the levels of micronutrients added to those foods are based on the estimated average daily per capita intakes of the foods. The adequately fortified food must be consumed consistently by the vast proportion (est. >80%) of the population. Therefore, up-to-date data on intakes of the target foods to be fortified are essential for setting national fortification standards. In sub-Saharan Africa the diets of vulnerable populations are usually monotonous. Most cereal milling processes remove much of the intrinsic micronutrients. These should be restored and increased proportionately: the addition of extra vitamins and minerals will help to improve micronutrient intakes and status.
