Food Fortification Meetings

Meetings with Secretaries of State for Trade and Assistance and Social Reintegration

During his recent mission in Luanda (5-12), EFFA President had the opportunity to meet the new appointed Secretary of State for Trade and the one for Assistance and Social Reintegration in order to present our Food Fortification program. Interesting and promising discussions. A new meeting will be organized soon in order to study the possibilities to hold shortly a Conference in Luanda with all the concerned ministries and a Food Fortification expert.
Food Fortification' World Map

Food Fortification Initiative

"We would love to add Angola to this map of countries with mandatory wheat flour fortification." ~Sarah Zimmerman, Communications Coordinator at Food Fortification Initiative~
We define mandatory as legislation that has the effect of requiring fortification with at least iron or folic acid. Most countries permit fortification. We only list a country as voluntary if at least 50% of the industrially-milled grain is fortified through voluntary efforts. We estimate that 28.1% of the world's industrially milled wheat flour, 58.0% of industrially milled maize flour, and 0.8% of industrially milled rice is fortified with at least iron or folic acid through these mandatory and voluntary efforts.

Food Fortification Conference

Food Fortification Conference

Malnutrition is a major problem In developing countries. It affects all age groups, but young children and women of reproductive age tend to be among those most at risk. It has many negative effects on human health, contributing to high rates of morbidity and mortality. Food fortification has been identified by experts as a vector capable to decrease the nutrient deficiencies at the global level. By adding essential vitamins and minerals (e.g. Iron, vitamin A, folic acid, iodine, ...) to staple foods, we can improve significantly their nutritional content and finally the public health. On EFFA initiative a conference on this issue is currently under preparation.

Project Presentation

Malnutrition is a major health problem in developing countries. It affects all age groups, but young children and women of reproductive age tend to be among those most at risk. It has many negative effects on human health, contributing to high rates of morbidity and mortality. Food fortification has been identified by experts as a vector capable to decrease the nutrient defi- ciencies at the global level. By adding essential vitamins and minerals (e.g. iron, vitamin A, folic acid, iodline...) to staple foods, we can improve significan- tly their nutritional content and finally the public health. We do believe such fortification is a tool of health policy. < /br>~Daniel Ribant, EFFA President and Founder~
