Everyday Food fortified with Vitamins and Minerals like Cereals Flour Bread and Dairy products

Some countries decided to fortify everyday food with vitamins or minerals which the population is lacking, for instance in the UK, Vitamin D.

There is usually no side effect on this and this kind of products because they are completely safe, to make it simple they just added Vitamins or Minerals in the product and that makes them called: Fortified 

You can be prescribed with supplements in case of really low level, but the best solution is to prevent this lack introducing more of this nutrients in your diet, especially when is not easy to get sunlight which unfortunately could be the majority of the time during the year

Here a list of fortified foods:

  • CEREALS: the majority of breakfast cereal are fortified,  not only with Vitamin D, bus also Iron, Calcium and Vitamin A, to check the label to find out which brand is adding more of these nutrients.

  • FLOUR: if you are buying that from almost any groceries this should be fortified in Calcium, Iron, Vitamin B1 and B3, just double-check the label of your favourite brand to make you have these nutrients included in the label

  • BREAD: fortified with Omega 3 and Vitamin D, used be available only in M&S but not, fortunately, is widely available 

    • DAIRY: In Australia, for instance, is common to find this kind of products fortified with Vitamin D and Omega 3, but here in the UK is not easy to find it in the groceries, I would recommend M&S products or Arla's products in all the other groceries which are actually fortified

    This blog was made to help to give you more ideas so if you come across any other fortified food please don't hesitate to comment below this post to share it, thanks.
