Taken with a Grain of Salt? Micronutrient Fortification in South Asia
This article reviews the research on fortification of food in the context of South Asia, with an emphasis on avenues for future research in economics and policy. We argue that while the efficacy of
Small-scale milling and the feasibility of mandatory fortification of sorghum and maize flour in Botswana
In Botswana, as in many developing countries, food fortification is a potential strategy for addressing the malnutrition of low income groups. This article examines the potential costs of mandatory
Women’s Groups to Improve Maternal and Child Health Outcomes: Different Evidence Paradigms Toward Impact at Scale
TLDR
The challenge is to distill the elements of success across these approaches that empower women with knowledge, motivation, and increased self-efficacy—and to apply them in real-world programs at scale.
Food system strategies for preventing micronutrient malnutrition
TLDR
The goal of this paper is to identify deficiencies in the food system that lead to micronutrient malnutrition and explore and evaluate strategies for its prevention, and to discuss the potential of biofortification – i.e. increasing the concentration ofmicronutrients in staple food crops through conventional plant breeding or genetic engineering – as a means to reduce micRONutrient deficiency.
Rice Fortification: Its Potential for Improving Micronutrient Intake and Steps Required for Implementation at Scale
TLDR
In countries with a large centralized rice milling industry, starting rice fortification is easier than in countries with many small mills, and countries with large safety nets that supply rice to the poorest have a good channel to reach those most in need.
Vitamin food fortification today
TLDR
The importance of the risk–benefit aspect, as well as how to identify the risk groups, and the food vehicles for fortification is discussed, which are taken as practical examples in the review of the beneficial effect of different strategies on public health.
Addressing Micronutrient Deficiencies: Alternative Interventions and Technologies
Improving the nutritional value of staple food crops hasusually been a secondary concern for high-income con-sumers, who have access to improved nutrition throughdietary diversification. As a
A Comprehensive and Practical Guide to Clinical Nutrition in Medical Practice
Clinical nutrition is a medical discipline defined as the study of food nutrients and their application in healthcare for managing diseases, affecting the absorption and metabolism of nutrients. Any
Assessment of salt intake to consider salt as a fortification vehicle for thiamine in Cambodia
TLDR
Estimating salt intakes among lactating women (<6 months postpartum) using repeat observed‐weighed intake records and 24‐h urinary sodium excretions can inform a potential salt fortification program in Cambodia.
Determinants of US household expenditures on fortified fruit juice
TLDR
It is suggested that fruit-juice manufacturers’ fortification efforts are improving the nutritional intake of toddlers and children but are less effective at reaching other demographic subgroups (rural and minority-headed households) with high nutrient-deficiency incidence.

Effectiveness of food fortification in the United States: the case of pellagra.
TLDR
Food fortification that is designed to restore amounts of nutrients lost through grain milling was an effective tool in preventing pellagra during the 1930s and 1940s, when food availability and variety were considerably less than are currently found in the United States.
