UK Policy on Folate Fortification of Foods
Malcolm, Alan
Journal of Biological Education, v38 n3 p106-107 2004
The UK Food Standards Agency has decided not to recommend fortification of foods with folate, the family of vitamins associated with the prevention of neural tube defects in babies. This is a change in attitude from previous recommendations made by a series of committees and reports in the UK. Notably, it differs from US policy on the matter. The debate may not be over yet, however.
