چکیده:   (776 مشاهده)
Food fortification with iron can be an inexpensive, simple and effective strategy for controlling and preventing iron deficiency and anemia in many countries .

Based on the results obtained and the consensus that bread, the national staple food, was an ideal vehicle for iron fortification, a 6-year pilot study was conducted with wheat flour fortified with 30 mg iron and 1.5 mg folic acid per kg, in Bushehr province in the south of Iran.
