Development of a Fortification Database

The aim of this project is to develop a database of enriched, fortified, and intrinsic nutrient levels for all foods reported consumed in the 2007-2008, 2009-2010 WWEIA, NHANES, and also the2011-2012 WWEIA, NHANES, which provides the most recent nationally representative food consumption data for the U.S. population at this time. The database can be used to estimate updated intakes of nutrients added for fortification or enrichment purposes. Ultimately, information on nutrient intakes from added sources could be used to better align intakes with nutrient needs.
