World Food Day: New Ranking Tool to Guide Investment in Biofortified Crops Launched

World Food Day: New Ranking Tool to Guide Investment in Biofortified Crops Launched | Healthy Recipes and Tips for Healthy Living | Scoop.it

15 October 2013, HarvestPlus -- "In time for World Food Day, HarvestPlus launched a new tool to guide strategic decision making for investing in biofortified (nutrient-rich) crops in developing countries.

The BPI focuses on the three key micronutrients (vitamin A, iron, and zinc) that the World Health Organization deems among the most limiting in diets. Lack of these and other micronutrients impairs cognitive and physical development and increases vulnerability to infectious diseases, especially among children and women. ..."
