Result of a 2 year long debate
Manuf. can now fortify cereal with Vitamin D in Australia and New Zealand
I am unable to quickly see how much vitamin D can be added,
I guess that it is less than 200 IU (per serving), the minimum daily recommended amount in Austraila.
- Fortifying breakfast cereal with 200 IU might help -June 2016
- Typically takes a century for govts to fortify food with nutrients (like vitamin D)
- Low fat milk provides 2.5 times less vitamin D – May 2016
- Vitamin D – water-soluble is far more absorbable than fat-soluble – Nov 2016
- Bio-Tech is the only company I am aware of that makes a non-liquid water-soluble form of vitamin D
- I have been home-fortifying my morning granola with vitamin D for several years.
- 5,000 IU of Vitamin D powder added to 1 gallon of milk should be great for kids
- This sends an encouraging message to people around the world
Fortification works, even if food is cooked, but govts rarely fortifiy with enough
Govts, food producers, and families can fortify:
milk, yogurt, beer, bread, cerals, cooking oil, soups, jams, jellys, snack bars, etc.
