Assessing how Many People Consume Fortified Foods

GAIN shares recent findings on the coverage of fortified foods in Côte d’Ivoire, Ghana, and India. In Côte d’Ivoire, Nutribon, a complementary fortified food product for low income children, had high recognition, but low rates of use and coverage. In Ghana, behavior change communication was effective in supporting delivery of supplementary food. In Rajasthan, India, coverage of fortified atta wheat flour, oil, and salt increased among micronutrient deficient populations, but in Telengana, India, large-scale market-based rice fortification would not be effective, as many households produce their own rice.
