Book Description :

Food Fortification in a Globalized World outlines experiences over the past 50 years—and future potential—for the application of food fortification across a variety of foods in the industrialized and developing world. The book captures recent science and applications trends in fortification, including emerging areas such as biofortification, nutraceuticals and new nutrient intake recommendations, standards, policy and regulation. The book proposes a balanced and effective food fortification strategy for nations to adopt. In covering the most technical scientific details in an approachable style, this work is accessible to a range of practitioners in industry, government, NGOs, academia and research. Food fortification has become an increasingly significant strategy to address gaps in micronutrient intakes in populations with measurable impact in both industrialized and developing countries. While the positive impacts are well recognized there are new concerns in some countries that excessive fortification of foods, outdated nutritional labeling rules and misleading marketing tactics used by food manufacturers may result in young children consuming harmful amounts of some vitamins and minerals. Presents the latest science on fortification for the prevention of micronutrient deficiencies Includes emerging areas such as biofortification, nutraceuticals and new nutrient intake recommendations, standards, regulations, practices and policies from around the world Summarizes evidence of application of food fortification and measured impact on public health Discusses how public policy impacts fortification of foods and nutritional deficiencies Considers the complex economics of and market for fortified foods

Book Description :

Micronutrient malnutrition affects approximately 2 billion people worldwide. The adverse effects of micronutrient deficiencies are profound and include premature death, poor health, blindness, growth stunting, mental retardation, learning disabilities, and low work capacity. Preventing Micronutrient Deficiencies provides a conceptual framework based on past experience that will allow funders to tailor programs to existing regional/country capabilities and to incorporate within these programs the capacity to address multiple strategies (i.e., supplementation/fortification/food-based approaches/public health measures) and multiple micronutrient deficiencies. The book does not offer recommendations on how to alleviate specific micronutrient deficiencies--such recommendations are already available through the publications of diverse organizations, including the U.S. Agency for International Development, the Micronutrient Initiative, World Bank, United Nations Childrens' Fund, and the World Health Organization. Instead, this volume examines key elements in the design and implementation of micronutrient interventions, including such issues as: The importance of iron, vitamin A, and iodine to health. Populations at risk for micronutrient deficiency. Options for successful interventions and their cost. The feasibility of involving societal sectors in the planning and implementation of interventions. Characteristics of successful interventions. The book also contains three in-depth background papers that address the prevention of deficiencies of iron, vitamin A, and iodine.

Book Description :

This review of the micro-nutrient policy process in Zambia serves as a companion piece to two parallel studies in Malawi and South Africa. All three studies employ the Kaleidoscope Model of policy change to trace the causal forces leading to key micro-nutrient policy decisions in each of the three countries. After outlining the overall micronutrient policy process in Zambia, the study focuses on policy decisions affecting three micro-nutrients – iodine, iron and Vitamin A. Although iodine deficiency has dropped precipitously as a result of Zambia’s salt iodization mandate, progress in combatting iron and Vitamin A deficiencies has proven more difficult. As a result, micro-nutrient policies have changed over time, in an effort to find effective tools for combatting these lingering micro-nutrient deficiencies and the considerable health risks they impose. The analysis in this paper traces the evolution of policies adopted through multiple iterations beginning in 1978 and running through to the present time. To supplement the voluminous published and grey literature on micro-nutrient status and policies in Zambia, the research team conducted semi-structured interviews with several dozen policy stakeholders in Zambia in June and July 2015 using a standardized interview guide

Book Description :

Vitamin A deficiency affects some 127 million preschool children globally, putting them at increased risk of sickness and death as the deficiency leaves them vulnerable to infection and with reduced immunity to fight common childhood diseases. Supplementation is cost-effective and has proven potential to reduce the yearly number of preventable child deaths by some 23 per cent. Two annual doses of high-potency supplements, costing less than US $0.04 per child, can prevent and correct the deficiency. This report tracks the progress of supplementation programming following 10 years of global advocacy. It is a 'scorecard' for countries and the international community on progress in scaling up one of the most effective child survival interventions available.

Book Description :

Risk of malnutrition is prevalent in care home residents. Prescription of oral nutritional supplements is common practice in nutritional management of these residents; yet compliance rates in care homes are low. In the present studies risk of malnutrition was assessed, reasons for poor compliance investigated and an intervention developed to improve compliance in older adult care home residents. It was clear that nursing care residents were significantly more vulnerable to malnutrition risk than residential care; those with the lowest BMI experienced the greatest weight loss; and despite notification to carers, risk remained stable. Improvements in energy intake by enhancing meals with additional energy through food fortification or providing supplementation in covert versus overt presentation were assessed. There was no benefit of covert presentation relative to overt but food fortification and supplementation increased the energy density and nutrient quality of the meals consumed. ONS benefits depend on high compliance; carers acknowledged residents" need for additional support; residents wanted to exert control over the flavour and type of supplement given; and residents" knowledge about why they take ONS was identified as an important factor for compliance. These findings shaped the development of an intervention in which choice and variety were compared against motivation and education. In comparison with baseline, both arms of the intervention significantly improved compliance (from 60% to 93%). This indicates that personal choice which can enhance perceived efficacy and autonomy; motivation (through implementation intention and reward); and education (through information about the benefits of supplementation) can improve compliance. Therefore, compliance to ONS depends on three major components; the attributes of the resident taking the supplement; the support and education of the residents" carer; and the sensory properties of the products prescribed. The research confirmed the importance of the care environment in identification and action upon malnutrition risk, and that for the beneficial effects of ONS to be achieved, compliance must be enhanced through personal choice, variety, motivation and education.

Book Description :

Biofortification, which can be defined as the process of increasing the content/density of essential nutrients and/or its bioavailability of food with valuable compounds, is a promising means of increasing nutrient intakes. Traditional fortification practices in which exogenous nutrients are added to food can increase the content of nutrients but the use of biofortified foods with nutrients also may deliver the compounds in a more available form, as well as boost the overall relative effectiveness of these foods in raising nutrients status. Food Biofortification Technologies presents the state of the art in the field of novel methods of fortification and agricultural treatments as a way to improve the quality of obtained food products or compounds enriched with valuable nutrients. The book deals with fortification methods and agricultural treatments, which can improve the quality of food products or other agricultural compounds, providing them with a higher density of valuable nutrients. The utilization of novel products, such as feed additives and fertilizers, can avert nutrients depletion in food products. The book describes new and conventional methods of introducing valuable compounds into food components and presents the application of biosorption, bioaccumulation, and utilization of fertilizers in obtaining designer food. Attention is paid to the use of biomass as the carrier of nutrients such as microelements into the food components. The chapters are dedicated to specific food products and their nutrient components. The first chapter discusses the agronomic biofortification with micronutrients where the fertilization strategies are pointed out as a key to plant/cereals fortification. Other chapters present the fortification of animal foodstuffs such as meat, fish, milk, and eggs as well as the fortification of plant foodstuffs such as vegetables, fruits, and cereals. The book also explores advances in food fortification with vitamins and co-vitamins, essential minerals, essential fatty and amino acids, phytonutrients, and enzymes.

Book Description :

The U.S. Army Health Risk Appraisal group surveyed 400,000 active duty U.S. Army personnel in the late 1990s to determine whether or not those personnel met the dietary objectives of Healthy People 2000 (HP2000), a national agenda for health promotion and disease prevention. As reported by Yore et al. (2000), Army personnel generally did not meet the HP2000 goals for nutrition even though significant progress had been made during 1991-1998. Although the specific aspects of diet that would be relevant to this Committee on Mineral Requirements for Cognitive and Physical Performance of Military Personnel are lacking, the findings from this survey suggest that there are dietary problems in the military population. The potential for adverse effects of marginal mineral deficiencies among soldiers engaged in training or military operations and the prospect of improving military performance through mineral intakes have spurred the military's interest in this area of nutrition. Mineral Requirements for Military Personnel provides background information on the current knowledge regarding soldiers' eating behaviors as well as on the physical and mental stress caused by military garrison training or operations. This report also offers facts on the mineral content of rations and its intake by military personnel and addresses the potential effects of nutrient deficiencies due to inadequate intake or higher requirements during military operations. Mineral Requirements for Military Personnel provides information and recommendations on the development and uses of MDRIs and a description of strategies to increase intake of specific minerals, whether via usual foods, fortification, or supplementation. This report features a description of the metabolism and needs for selected minerals by military personnel under garrison training, recommendations on mineral intake levels, and an assessment of mineral level adequacy in operational rations. This report also includes a prioritization of the research needed to answer information gaps and details of study designs required to gain such information.

Book Description :

Verschiedene physiologische Faktoren gelten als Risikomarker für die Entwicklung von Neuralrohrdefekten (NRD): ein niedriger Folat- und/oder Vitamin B12-Status, ein erhöhter Plasma-Homocystein-Spiegel und Polymorphismen der 5,10-Methylentetrahydrofolatreduktase (MTHFR). Zur Primärprävention wird Frauen im gebärfähigen Alter die perikonzeptionelle Supplementierung von 400μg/Tag Folsäure empfohlen, die nachweislich das NRD-Risiko senkt. Die natürlicherweise vorkommende Hauptform des Folats, das (6S)-5- Methyltetrahydrofolat ((6S)-5-MTHF), stellt eine mögliche Alternative zur Folsäure dar. Zwei Projekte dienten dem Vergleich der Wirksamkeit von (6S)-5-MTHF- und Folsäure- Supplementen auf Risikomarker für NRD bei gesunden, nicht schwangeren Frauen. Das erste Projekt war eine doppel-blinde, randomisierte, placebo-kontrollierte, 24-wöchige Interventionsstudie mit 144 Frauen. Ziel der Studie war der Vergleich der Wirkung von 400μg/Tag Folsäure, äquimolaren 416μg/Tag (6S)-5-MTHF und 208μg/Tag (6S)-5-MTHF auf den Erythrozytenfolat- und Plasma-Homocystein-Spiegel. Das zweite Projekt, eine gepoolte Analyse, diente dem Vergleich verschiedener Supplementformen mit einzelnen oder kombinierten B-Vitaminen auf die Senkung des Plasma-Homocystein-Spiegels bei 844 jungen Frauen.

Book Description :

Meeting macro- and micronutrient requirements during pregnancy and early childhood is crucial for short- and long-term health and cognitive function. Meta-analyses confirm that supplementation or fortification of food with the 'big four' (vitamin A, iron, zinc, and iodine) is efficacious to reduce the risk of infectious disease and improves growth and cognitive outcome. More recently, folate and vitamin B12 deficiencies during pregnancy have been shown to be associated with poor neurodevelopmental outcome and childhood obesity. The papers collected in the book at hand address the fact that maternal and fetal deficiencies can induce inadequate metabolic programming in the offspring, with increased risk for non-communicable diseases later in life. World-renowned experts in the fields of epidemiology and nutritional intervention met with those in genetics, epigenetics, and metabolic outcome to clarify the pathogenesis of micronutrient deficiencies in pregnancy and childhood, preventive methods and strategies, and opportunities for treatment.
