Estimating nutrient fortification levels in condiments and seasonings for public health programs: considerations and adaptations
Condiments and seasonings have been considered as potential vehicles for fortification in place of, or in addition to, fortifiable staple foods. However, methodologies for establishing fortification programs focus primarily on use of staple foods, which are consumed in larger portions than condiments and seasonings.
This paper reviews available methods for setting fortification levels and explores whether, or how, available methods could be adapted to condiments and seasonings. Authors also identify gaps in knowledge to guide future research exploring the appropriate use of condiments and seasonings as vehicles for fortification in public health
