Oil Fortification

Oil Fortification

The Need

More than 57% of children in India suffer from Vitamin A deficiency, a major cause of night-blindness. Additionally, a high proportion of pregnant women and their new-borns suffer from Vitamin D deficiency. Vitamin D plays an important role in decreasing the risk of many diseases, including cancers, auto-immune diseases, infectious diseases, diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
As per Household Consumer Expenditure (HCE) Survey in India, NSSO 2011, consumption of oil is ~20-30 GM/person/day. As Vitamins A and D are fat-soluble, fortification of vegetable oils and fats with these is a good strategy to address micronutrient malnutrition – as fortified vegetable oil provides ~30% of Recommended Dietary Allowances (RDA) for Vitamins A and D.
