You can see sharp rises in fortified niacin and folic acid in , in iron in , and again in folic acid in By , folic acid in fortified foods constituted 44% of all dietary folate, and enrichment mixtures provided one-third of all iron and niacin. Fortified vitamin A provided about 10% of all dietary vitamin A from through The Food Fortification Initiative lists all countries in the world that conduct fortification programs, and within each country, what nutrients are added to which foods, and whether those programs are voluntary or mandatory.   Moreover, the consumption of fortified foods and supplements is correlated; people with high intakes of fortified food tend to also use supplements. The consumption of fortified foods results in a higher probability of nutrient intakes near or above the UL as does the intake of supplements (21, 52–55). Expanded fortification can be expected Cited by: The main purpose of these guidelines is to assist countries in the design and implementation of appropriate food fortification programs.
