Iron Micro Particles Improve Digestibility

Iron deficiency is one of the most important nutritional disorders, and can cause health problems. Food fortification with minerals often induces unacceptable organoleptic changes during the preparation process and storage, has low bioavailability and solubility, and is expensive. Micro particle surface modification to obtain novel characteristics can be a useful tool to overcome these problems.

The Role of Nutrition in Pregnancy

The Role of Nutrition in Pregnancy – MM1610

A woman’s suboptimal nutrition during pregnancy affects the development and health of her unborn child into adulthood. The process occurs via epigenetic changes that alter the ‘programming’ of developing organs and tissues. Suboptimal nutrition in utero can also result in these changes being transmitted to the woman’s grandchildren. Nutritional deficiencies can reduce a woman’s chance of conceiving and increase the likelihood of complications during pregnancy. The proportion of women with nutritional deficiencies is high. Nutritional testing and supplementation of women at risk is simple. Nutritional deficiency can also greatly increase the risk of cancer, mental illnesses and cardiovascular disease for the child in adulthood.
