Food fortification in India
White paper discussing how attitudes to food fortification are changing and how they are impacting the legislative landscape.

Micronutrient deficiencies and the effects of malnutrition affect large segments of India’s population, making efforts to curtail this issue a major focus. In this white paper, Valentina Capuano discusses the current food-fortification scenario in India.
