Food fortification and supplementation part one: filling the nutrient gap

Presented by

Prof. Balz Frei, Dr. Manfred Eggersdorfer, Jacob Bauly

About this talk

The majority of adults do not consume the recommended intake of essential micronutrients. Food fortification and supplementation provide manufacturers with the opportunity to enhance the health and wellbeing of consumers, enabling them to easily take in the vitamins and minerals complementing their daily dietary routine and filling the gaps. Two webinars will be dedicated to this broad topical field. The first session will focus on the science behind and the role of food fortification and supplementation in combating micronutrient deficiencies. The webinar will be presented by Prof. Balz Frei, Director and Endowed Chair of Linus Pauling Institute, and he will be joined by DSM’s Prof. Manfred Eggersdorfer and Jacob Bauly. They will present the impact of food fortification and supplementation on public health, share examples of strategies, and explain how the benefit of fortification and supplementation can be measured. They will also cover nutrient density and how it frames the value of food fortification and supplementation. This presentation is developed for scientific information purposes only and is not intended for marketing and/or sales claims purposes.
