Food Fortification
Food Fortification
A large section of population, particularly women and children in India and other South Asian countries suffer from micronutrient (minerals and vitamins) deficiencies resulting in low immunity, anemia, bone disorders, growth retardation etc. They also adversely affect capacity to work with fall in productivity in offices and factories and poor grades in schools. One way these can be prevented is through consumption of foods fortified with micronutrients.
