Adding beneficial ingredients

Product formulation and innovation is not just about removing nutrients of public health concern – it is also about adding ingredients considered beneficial for good health – whole grains, fibre, fruits, vegetables and low-fat dairy.

IFBA members are also committed to improving the nutrition of populations at risk of not getting enough vitamins and minerals, particularly in developing and emerging countries. Micronutrient deficiencies in iron, iodine, vitamins A and D and zinc are the most widespread form of undernutrition. Members work in partnership with scientists, local governments and health care professionals to identify the different nutritional “gaps” in diets and to develop micronutrient-fortified foods and beverages at an affordable price.
