Rice Fortification: A Step in the Right Direction to Eliminate Malnutrition

Rice is a staple food for more than half of the world’s population. However, it is also a nutrient-poor food. Rice fortification is the process of adding essential vitamins and minerals to rice to improve its nutritional value.

There are many benefits to rice fortification. Fortified rice can help to reduce the risk of malnutrition, which is a major problem in many developing countries. Malnutrition can lead to stunting, wasting, anemia, and other health problems. Fortified rice can also help to improve cognitive development and school performance.

There are a few different ways to fortify rice. One way is to add nutrients to the rice during processing. Another way is to add nutrients to the rice after it has been cooked.

The most common nutrients added to fortified rice are iron, folate, and vitamin A. Iron is important for preventing anemia, folate is important for preventing birth defects, and vitamin A is important for vision and immunity.

Rice fortification is a safe and effective way to improve the nutritional value of a staple food. It is a cost-effective way to improve the health of millions of people around the world.
