Towards an optimal strategy for optimal vitamin d fortification

Objetivo

Nutrient additions to the human food chain include vitamin D incorporated in a wide variety of fatty foods. Against this background, the proposal addresses the Sol Work Program calling for the 'development of foods with particular benefit in Population groups such as - children, women at various life stages and older persons' . Vitamin D status will be determined and adjusted upwards by supplemental intervention in
1) a population of adolescent girls at the time of maximum growth;
2) a group of older individuals with vitamin D insufficiency ; and
3 ) an ethnic minority. A longitudinal survey will be carried out in five European countries of vitamin D status in relation to variation in dietary supply and seasonal variation in measured solar exposure. The feasibility of addressing the vitamin D deficiencies revealed is the subject of research in a work package concerned with the development of vitamin D fortified bread.
