43 FOOD FORTIFICATION AND SUPPLEMENTATION THE SITUATION IN EUROPE

44 Fortification in some European countries Mandatory fortification is not widely practised. - UK: Fe, Ca, thiamin, niacin in white and brown (81% extraction) flour - Austria, Switzerland, Poland & Denmark: Salt iodisation - UK, Ireland, Belgium Poland Vit. A and D in margarine, voluntarily in many other countries Code of Practice of the International Margarine Association of the Countries of Europe (IMACE) Voluntary salt iodisation is common. - Germany, Italy, Spain, Finland, Netherlandsand: use of iodised salt by the food industry encouraged. Otherwise, voluntary fortification of some foods is more or less common, especially in breakfast cereals.

45 Estimated proportion of industrial-scale wheat flour being fortified in 2007 WHO, FAO, UNICEF, GAIN, MI, & FFI. Recommendations on wheat and maize flour fortification. Meeting Report: Interim Consensus Statement. Geneva, World Health Organization, 2009

46 Flour fortification with Iron in Denmark from 1954 to 1987 mandatory fortification of flour 30 mg elementary iron per kg flour after cessation of the national iron fortification program regular survey of iron status of the population prevalence of iron overload increased after cessation of fortification (BfR 2004)

47 Food fortification with iron in Germany Previously, only allowed for breakfast cereals: 8 mg iron-(iii)-diphosphate per 100 g cereals 14 mg elementary iron per 100 g Since 2006, fortification of food with iron allowed within EU legislation. However, the BfR (German institute for risk assessment) does not advise food fortification with iron unless there is medical need and the addition is adequatly controlled in light of potential adverse effects of chronic high iron intake (evidence of higher risk of coronary heart diseases and cancer) BfR Opinion, No. 016/2009, 2 March fication_of_food.pdf

48 Flour fortification in Eastern Europe Many countries of Eastern Europe have a lower economic standard than the rest of the continent. Anemia in children and women is common. Mandatory flour fortification is envisaged in Romania, Bulgaria, Belarus, Ukraine, the Russian Federation, Moldavia, Georgia.

51 Adapted from: Elmadfa et al.: Austrian Nutrition Report 2008 The impact of food diversity

52 Many of the minerals critical at a global level are so in Europe as well: iron, zinc, iodine Deficiency is rarely severe and mostly subclinical Intake does often not correlate with status importance of status assessment

53 Contributing to inadequate supply: Wide availability and low prices of highly refined energy-dense but nutrient-poor foods Low consumption of good food sources for instance fruit, vegetables, whole grain cereals, fish Reluctance to fortify food Special diets esp. for weight reduction Age-/disease-related malabsorption

54 From traditional to new concepts in nutrition: new frontiers in nutrition science Adequate nutrition Optimal nutrition Survival Hunger satisfaction Food quality/ safety Health promotion/disease prevention: Improving well-being Reducing the risk of chronic diseases
