Flour Fortification

In many countries women and children, especially, suffer from severe deficiency symptoms caused by an inadequate supply of vitamins and minerals. In particular they lack iron, folate and other micro-nutrients. This can be counteracted effectively by fortifying staple foods such as flour.

Flour fortification has become an important topic in the milling industry in recent years. Whereas few countries considered fortifying wheat flour with iron and vitamins just a few years ago, this method has now established itself in over 50 countries at the initiative of the WHO.

Fortification of flour with vitamin and mineral premixes saves lives.

As a leading company in the field of flour enrichment, Mühlenchemie supports the FFI - Flour Fortification Initiative. This international alliance of universities, public institutions and private enterprise seeks to combat vitamin and mineral deficiency in the developing and newly industrialized countries. Its objective is to save lives and promote health.
