Biofortification
Breeding crops to enhance their nutritional composition, known as biofortification, is one potential strategy for addressing certain forms of undernutrition. This approach may be useful where there is a dependence on calorie-rich but nutrient-poor staple foods. This briefing describes developments in biofortification, examines its potential impact, and the implications for policy makers in the UK and abroad.
