Biofortification with zinc in flour for eliminating deficiency

The aim of this study is to examine whether or not consuming flour made from the high zinc grain has a beneficial impact on the zinc status of zinc-deficient women living in a rural community in North West Pakistan. Participating families are randomly allocated to consume either the high zinc grain or the standard grain for eight weeks. The families switch over after eight weeks. Blood and hair zinc concentration are measured, along with new indicators of zinc status such as markers of DNA damage and a new portable laser technique for measuring nail zinc concentration.

Comparison of two nutrition interventions in young children in El Salvador

Adequate nutrition during the first years of life is essential to reach full body and brain development potential. Children under the age of 5 in Central America and El Salvador suffer from micronutrient deficiencies. In El Salvador, ~ 20% of children under the age of 5 suffer from chronic undernutrition which is reflected in low length-for-their age Z-scores and anemia. This trial will examine the impact on health and growth in young children that will receive either a 21 micronutrient fortified cereal/legume mix manufactured in Guatemala or the current standard of nutritional care.
