Query Fortification

Active files link commodity quantity data directly to nutrient data, for a specific year based on the enrichment/ fortification policy for that year. A fortification query of these data will provide the nutrient total per capita per day as well as the contributions provided by the unenriched/unfortified commodity and the enriched/fortified commodity. Active files are available for rice, cornmeal/grits, and margarine from 1970; breakfast cereals from 1974; and flour and semolina from 1974.

Select the grouping level for your search. Select on Group, Subgroup, Type, Subtype or Food Item. Once you make a selection, click on Select button. Only the group level contains historical fortification data, because there is no link to commodity quantity data. (See Food Supply Methodologies: Fortification for a description of the Historical Fortification files) If grouping level is "All Foods", you do not have to select an item. Click here to view Historial Grain Fortification data.
