ISSN

When a country chooses to fortify rice to increase micronutrient intake across the population, standards that specify the required quality and nutrient content provide clarity and protection for both manufacturers and consumers. These standards help ensure the nutritional quality of the rice and that the rice is safe and acceptable for consumption. Standards are more general than pecifications or Commodity Requirement Documents (CRD). For example, fortified rice standards might cover a range in terms of the types of rice, nutrient content and quality specifications. Specifications for rice for a contract, such as from a government for distribution under a social safety net scheme, are more specific, including, for example, the type of rice, the quality in terms of percentage of broken kernels that can be included, the micronutrient content to be met, the technology/ies used to produce fortified kernels, the blending ratio of fortified kernels to rice grains, the required packaging, the limits for foreign matter and heavy metals, and the shelf-life.
