The Fortification Committee works to understand the impact of various nutrient sources on population nutrient intakes and status.

 Why is this research valuable?

There is considerable debate regarding the balance of processed versus whole foods in a healthful diet. To inform this debate, ILSI North America has developed a comprehensive evaluation of the contributions of natural, fortified, enriched, and dietary supplement food sources to total nutrient intakes. These data will be an important scientific resource as future food fortification policy is deliberated and the benefits of processed and whole foods continue to be debated in the scientific, media, and consumer arenas.

Fortification Database Available

The ILSI North America Fortification committee recently sponsored development of a database with estimates of intrinsic, fortification, and enrichment nutrients for foods reported consumed in 2009-2010 and 2011-2012 releases of the NHANES and What We Eat In America (WWEIA).  Fortification nutrients of interest for the database are vitamins A, C, D, E, B6 and B12, and folate, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, iron, zinc, calcium, magnesium and potassium.  Foods assumed to be fortified and/or enriched were identified in the FNDDS‐SR Links files used to process WWEIA 2009‐2010 and 2011‐2012. For each food identified as a fortified or enriched item, values for the applicable intrinsic, fortification and enrichment nutrient components per 100g food were estimated.  Further details of the database can be found below.

This database is available for use by researchers skilled in NHANES analysis. Please provide the following information:

  • Demonstrated expertise in NHANES analysis
  • Topic of interest and research questions to be addressed

We ask that any resulting publications acknowledge that the database was developed with support from the ILSI North America Fortification Committee.

Should others approach users for access to the database, we ask that they be referred to ILSI North America so that we can understand breadth and scope of use. 

Please contact us for more information at ilsina@ilsi.org    

Background Information

The current database can be used to estimate updated intakes of nutrients added for fortification or enrichment purposes. Ultimately, information on nutrient intakes from added sources could be used to better align intakes with nutrient needs.

Fortification Workshop: New Findings and Implications for Vitamins and Minerals

Washington, DC, USA

In an environment of over-consumption, it is of great interest that Americans simultaneously fail to meet the Dietary References Intakes (DRIs) for many nutrients. Fortification is a way to supplement intakes of the population at large without having to rely on consumer choice. The Forticiation Committee’s workshop will provide attendees with an improved understanding of the value of fortification and the success of current fortification efforts and practices. Additionally the workshop will address the potential future role of fortification in nutrient adequacy, which includes benefits and risks.
