Food Fortification

FOOD FORTIFICATION PROGRAM

Why Food Fortification Matters

Many diets, especially those of the poor, contain insufficient amounts of vitamins and minerals due to lack of variation and / or consumption of predominantly processed foods.
Adequate amounts of vitamins and minerals in the diet, also called micronutrients since they are only needed in small amounts, are critical to an individual’s health and development.
