Global Coverage of Mandatory Large-Scale Food Fortification Programs: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis

Abstract: Food fortification with micronutrients is widely implemented to reduce micronutrient deficiencies and related outcomes. Although many factors affect the success of fortification programs, high population coverage is needed to have a public health impact. We aimed to provide recent global coverage estimates of salt, wheat flour, vegetable oil, maize flour, rice, and sugar among …

Challenges and opportunities for increasing the effectiveness of food reformulation and fortification to improve dietary and nutrition outcomes

Abstarct: Reformulation, a change to a food or beverage’s processing or composition, can reduce potentially harmful ingredients such as salt, added sugar, and saturated and trans fats or increase potentially beneficial ingredients or nutrients such as fiber, protein, and micronutrients. Poor nutrition and health outcomes of populations have stimulated programs and policies to reduce the …

A generic theory of change-based framework with indicators for monitoring the effectiveness of large-scale food fortification programs in low- and middle- income countries

2023 Large-scale food fortification (LSFF) programs are widely implemented in low- and middle-income countries (LMIC) to alleviate micronutrient deficiencies. However, these programs may not achieve the desired impact due to poor design or bottlenecks in program implementation. Monitoring and evaluation (M&E) frameworks and a set of agreed indicators can help to benchmark progress and to …

Exploring the Use of the WHO Micronutrients Database to Identify Pre-and Post-Fortification Biomarker Data for Countries with Mandatory Grain Fortification

July 2023 EXECUTIVE SUMMARY One way to assess if mandatory grain (wheat flour, maize flour, rice) fortification is effective is to compare biomarkers of nutritional status in a subset of the population before and after fortification starts. WHO has a Vitamin and Mineral Nutrition Information System (VMNIS) which collates micronutrient biomarker data available for multiple …

Food fortification Frequently asked questions

Food fortification – adding vitamins and minerals to commonly eaten foods – is an effective way of addressing micronutrient deficiencies. Successful implementation of fortification requires food technologists, nutritionists, policymakers, and other stakeholders to know what micronutrients are, what they are for, and what they are not. However, myths and misunderstandings about the safety and effectiveness …
