DSM’s Nutrition Improvement business focuses on positively impacting public health by developing and implementing effective nutrition solutions and leveraging our expertise and partnerships to reach and serve the 4 billion people at the base of the pyramid. Deficiencies in many vitamins and minerals affect more than a third of the world s population. As one of the world’s most widely-consumed foods, rice is a promising vehicle for fortification to fill the nutrient gap of populations worldwide. Adding vitamins and minerals to rice helps to address a variety of nutritional needs in at-risk populations where rice is already a staple in daily diets. Advances in fortification technology ensure the added high-quality micronutrients remain stable in the kernels without requiring a behaviour change from, or the education of, individuals. In addition to fighting malnutrition, fortified kernels can also be marketed to consumers looking to address specific health concerns, such as immunity and low energy levels.
