ISSN

Where rice is an important staple food, rice fortification has the potential to significantly contribute to the reduction of micronutrient deficiencies in a population. Rice is estimated to be a staple food for over 3.5 billion people, half of the world’s population. Its consumption had traditionally been concentrated in Asia but is now increasingly important in Latin America and sub-Saharan Africa.1 Fortified rice can reach consumers through three different delivery options. First, governments can mandate that all rice on the market be fortified. Alternatively, rice millers can voluntarily fortify rice in response to market demand. Third, fortified rice can be made available through social safety net programs. The distribution of fortified rice through social safety net systems can occur alongside either mandatory or voluntary rice fortification. Selecting the most appropriate delivery option depends on public health need, context and the intended objective and purpose of rice fortification.
