Food Fortification

Oxford University Press

There are clear signs that the number of mandatory food fortification interventions and their coverage are set to expand into the future. These signs include the consolidation of current interventions, the momentum towards achieving the goals of pro-food fortification actors and the increasing number of staple foods that are being fortified, the number of added nutrients they contain and their reach. The principal drivers of increased food fortification activities into the future are anticipated to be: the United Nation’s ‘Scaling Up Nutrition’ initiative to address undernutrition, hunger, food and nutrition insecurity; the World Health Organization’s investment in the development of an expanded evidence base and advocacy activities; and new technologies such as biofortification. Drawing on the findings from the research presented in this book; policy, research, planning and implementation, and monitoring and evaluation priorities for managing food fortification as a technology for protecting and promoting public health are suggested.
