Fortification of staple foods with essential vitamins and micronutrients is an important way to improve micronutrient deficiencies in developing countries, where malnutrition is considered a severe public health problem. BASF manufactures micronutrients for the fortification of staple foods, which meet exceptional requirements in stability and efficacy even under extreme climatic conditions.

Staple foods fortified with quality nutrients are affordable and accessible for all income groups

Technically, most foods and beverages are fortifiable as many solutions for various foods thanks to formulation of ingredients exist. However, the reach into all income groups is provided by the fortification of affordable staple foods. These staple foods are locally part of everyone’s diet, so no behavioral changes are required to access improved nutrition. Hence, affordable foods that are widely used become accessible, and therefore aim to achieve adequate nutrition for all populations.
