Food fortification is a critical public health strategy that involves adding essential vitamins, minerals, and nutrients to foods to address nutritional deficiencies and improve overall health. By fortifying staple foods like flour, rice, and salt, this approach has successfully combated various nutrient deficiencies, such as vitamin A, iron, and folic acid, making a substantial impact on global health, particularly in areas with limited access to diverse diets. Non-conformity in the food industry refers to instances where products or processes fail to meet established standards or regulatory requirements. It can result from various factors, including contamination, mislabeling, or improper handling. Identifying and addressing non-conformities is crucial for food safety, quality assurance, and compliance.

ONE STOP ENGINEERING SOLUTION Vol .02-Issue .40-October 2023 FOOD FORTIFICATION Introduction Fortification vs Enrichment Fortification has a strong history, Concept of food fortification came as a result of a particular public health need. For example, in 1924, Iodine was added to salt in order to prevent the wealth of problems that had arisen as a result of Iodine Deficiencies. By 1998, Folic Acid was added to flour, baked goods and cereal to prevent abundant Neural Tube Defects in infants—it is so effective at reducing this risk that more than 50 countries require foods. Another typical fortification is Vitamin D, which was added to milk in the early 1900s. fortification in certain folate What is Food Fortification? involves Fortification the process of adding nutrients to foods irrespective of whether or not the nutrients were initially present in the food to correct or reduce deficiency disorders. It is a means of improving the nutritional status of a population (or potentially a sub-population). People are often confused between these terms, which sometimes are interchangeably used. Both fortification and Enrichment deals with the addition of nutrients but still there is a difference. Let us see what the difference is. Criteria for selecting Vehicle Safety and technical considerations are considered when deciding which foods to fortify and to what level: 1. It should be an edible item consumed by a large population. There should be no change in the organoleptic properties when added. Low cost of food product so that everyone could afford it, generally staples are preferred. Should have good storage stability 2. 3. 4. PMG DESIGN+BUILD FOOD FACTORIES.

Vol .02-Issue .40-October 2023 PLATE HEAT EXCHANGER Types of Food Fortification: Conclusion: Food fortification is attractive because it does not require the target groups to change their diet but can be implemented by the food industry efficiently and because it reaches large numbers of consumers through retail, it is an incredibly effective way of tackling deficiencies in densely populated urban areas. Also, it is a fantastic cost-effective process. It is theprocess of 1. Biofortification: increasing the micronutrient content of a food crop through selective breeding, genetic modification, or by the use of enriched fertilizers. For e.g. Plants can translocate minerals from the soil to the edible portion of the crop. It is a long term and cost-effective process. 2. Home Fortification: Micronutrient powders refers to sachets containing micronutrients in a dry powder form which can be added to food, i.e. ready for consumption. For, eg. It can be done simply by sprinkling over the food or mixing it in milk to make curd, kheer etc. Thus it derives its name as Home fortification. Industrial fortification: to adding micronutrients and minerals Industrial food fortification 3. refers to industrially processed and widely consumed edible products. This type of fortification is generally done in industries like-wheat processing, rice processing and oil manufacturing. a) Wheat fortification: Powdered vitamin and minerals are added to flour during the milling process using feeder equipment.

You need the problem, segregate it, disposition the product or service, carry out the decided disposition, and finally, decide if a corrective action is needed to prevent recurrence. Below is an explanation of the five main steps the Non-conforming Products process. identify in 1.Identification of Non-Conformance Product Addressing the non-conformance may rely on knowing not only what is found, but what was expected. It is often equally important to know what the problem isn’t, such as identifying if it has already been determined that this is not a repeat of a similar problem that has previously been found. Properly identifying the problem up front can prevent wasting time and resources looking at the wrong thing. 2.Marking with tags, signs, or stickers There is no universal standard for identifying non- conforming material. A green tag would suffice just the same as a red tag. It is more important that everyone recognize non- conforming material with the marking identified in your quality assurance manual. the organization in 3.Segregation Securing designated cabinet specially marked conforming material. the material in a holding cage or for non- 4.Containment Whether the corrective action plan requires it to be documented or not, any non-conformance should have containment action. This is a quick response to “stop the bleeding” and is generally taken within 7 days or sooner if a product is about to be shipped out the door. This may also include alerting a customer depending on the nature of the non-conformance, quarantining an item or an immediate review of a procedure. PMG DESIGN+BUILD FOOD FACTORIES.
