Fortification of foods – update of model
On behalf of the Norwegian Food Safety Authority, VKM will update the fortification of foods model with new data about the intake of energy, vitamins and minerals, both from diet in general and from dietary supplements.
The data will be collected from diverse databanks, including Norkost, Ungkost, Småbarnskost and Spedkost Norwegian population databanks.
Fortified foods are foods containing added vitamins or minerals/trace elements beyond those found naturally in the food.
The project team in VKM consists of:
- Lene Frost Andersen, VKM member, Panel for Nutrition, Dietetic Products, Novel Food and Allergy
- Inger Therese Lillegaard, the VMK Secretariat
- Bente Mangschou, the VKM Secretariat
The work will be approved by the Panel for Nutrition, Dietetic Products, Novel Food and Allergy. The update is scheduled to be completed by June 2021.
