Multiple micronutrient supplements

Multiple micronutrient deficiencies often worsen throughout pregnancy, as there is an increased need for micronutrients to support both a woman’s health and the requirements of her baby during this time.
As women do not always meet increased nutrient needs during pregnancy via their normal diet, multiple micronutrient supplementation should be considered to help to close the nutrient gap and ensure that mothers receive sufficient prenatal nutrition.

Micronutrient Powders

Powdered vitamins and minerals, also called micronutrient powders (MNPs), are scientifically proven to provide the nutrients that infants and children, from six months to five years, need to ensure their best possible growth and development. The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends using MNPs to supplement food for infants in regions where the prevalence of anemia in children under five years of age is above 20 percent.

Nutrition in the first 1000 days is very important to overall development. Watch how dsm-firmenich Micronutrient Powder sachets support the health, growth and development of children.

Fortified Staple Foods

The fortification of staple foods, such as wheat and maize flour and rice, is a well-established, trusted and proven method of addressing micronutrient deficiencies on a large scale, in a cost-effective way and with good consumer acceptance.

Making rice more nutritious

Rice – the world’s number one staple food – is low in micro-nutrients once milled. Extruded rice kernels fortified with vitamins and minerals could improve the lives of millions of consumers who currently suffer from hidden hunger.
