ISSN

The fortification of staple foods with essential vitamins and minerals is a proven, cost-effective and sustainable intervention to prevent micronutrient malnutrition among entire populations, especially where existing food vehicles and local distribution networks are available and can be utilized. As it is the staple food for an estimated three billion people – most of whom reside in developing countries – making rice more nutritious offers a vast opportunity to improve micronutrient intakes and the health status of entire populations. However, to date rice fortification has been an underutilized public health tool, due in part to the need to ensure the slightly higher costs of rice fortification are appropriately absorbed.
