According to the World Health Organization (WHO), cases of deficiencies of various micronutrients are increasing, worldwide. Among them, iron and anemia are the prominent contributors to the preventable disease burden. Food fortification is the process of deliberately increasing the content of essential micronutrients in food products so as to improve the nutritional value of food, providing health benefits and minimizing risk to health.
However, fortification efforts are limited especially in underdeveloped as well as developing countries due to the low iron bioavailability. Furthermore, using high iron fortification supplements may not always be prudent in tropical regions. Hence, The WHO endorses food fortification as a primary means of improving micronutrient health to improve the nutritional quality of the food supply.
