Breakfast cereals are common fortified foods across the globe. Research has shown that regular consumption of fortified breakfast cereals augments intake of various micronutrients.
The cereal fortification of ready to eat breakfast is a wide-spread practice. Breakfast cereal fortification makes sure cereals are enriched enough so that the food holds more nutritional value. In the United States, the general practice has been to provide 25% of the RDA of thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, pyridoxine, folate, ascorbic acid, and vitamin A per 1 ounce. 10 or 25% iron, up to 20% RDA for calcium have also been added; vitamin D has also sometimes been included (Bauernfeind and DeRitter, 1991). Surveys have indicated that fortified breakfast cereals play an important role in ensuring nutritional adequacy of the diets of the U.S. population (Wiemer, 1995).
