  "Rice is the staple food for billions of people today and that isn't going to change anytime soon, so rice biofortification is a tool that we can use to address hidden hunger in a huge number of.   Reason for Rice Biofortification Rice is a staple food crop for more than one billion poor people The Rice endosperm (starchy & most edible part of rice seed) is deficient in many nutrients including vitamins, proteins, micronutrients, EAAs, etc. The Aleurone layer of dehusked rice grains is nutrient rich but is lost during milling and.

Biofortification is an effective technique to enhance the micronutrient status of deficient wheat, maize, and rice varieties. Micronutrients can be readily transported to the endosperm through foliar application and manipulation of organic matter and nutrients for the sustainable production of .   Micronutrients biofortified into Rice Zinc Iron Biofortification Promoters Biofortification requires a multidisciplinary research approach 22 Approaches for Biofortification in Rice Convetional breeding Transgenic plant strategy Iron & Phytate content & Zinc, Vit. A, Protein etc 23 Agronomic strategy

Rice (Oryza sativa L.) supplies nourishment to about half of the population of the world’s inhabitants. Of them, more than 2 billion people suffer from ‘hidden hunger’ in which they are unable to meet the recommended nutrients or micronutrients from their daily dietary intake. Biofortification refers to developing micronutrient-rich diet foods using traditional breeding methods and. Biofortification is an umbrella term for a diverse range of projects and possibilities. It is best understood on three levels: as a range of technologies for developing micronutrient-dense crops; a development intervention to improve public health; and an idea that links agriculture, nutrition, and health in a particular paper focuses on the Golden Rice project as a well-known example.

Biofortification could yet become an exemplar of a different, boundary-crossing, socially-informed science for poverty alleviation.3/5(1). Through an in-depth analysis of international rice biofortification efforts across the US, Philippines and China, this book provides an important critique of such goal-oriented, top-down approaches.

These approaches, the author argues, exemplify a model of global, 'public goods' science that is emerging within complex, international research Cited by: Biofortification is the process of improving the bioavailability of essential nutrients in food crops either through conventional breeding or modern biotechnology techniques.

Rice is one of the most demanding staple foods worldwide. Most global population live on a diet based on rice as the main carbohydrate source that serve as suitable target for by: 4.

'A deeply thought-provoking book, this study of biofortification in rice explores how and why public science so often irons out complex needs into a demand for pre-packaged solutions. Biofortification could yet become an exemplar of a different, boundary-crossing, socially-informed science for poverty : Sally Brooks.

The present study presents an overview about various agronomic, breeding, and transgenic approaches for the biofortification of rice grains with Fe, Zn, and Se elements. View. BIOFORTIFICATION the IRRI Healthier Rice Program aims to develop and deploy biofortified rice varieties that can help address micronutrient deficiencies by providing % of the estimated average requirement for vitamin A, iron, and zinc to micronutrient-deficient women and children.

Rice biofortification is intended as a complementary food. Biofortification is a technique that uses conventional breeding methods to produce more nutritious crops—with a higher content of vitamin A, zinc, iron, or other micronutrients than standard crop varieties.

Biofortified crops already contributing to healthier diets in Asia and Africa include vitamin A sweet potatoes, zinc rice, and iron beans.

Considerable attention and resources are being directed towards the biofortification of rice - the world's most important food crop. Through an in-depth analysis of international rice biofortification efforts across the US, Philippines and China, this book provides an important critique of such goal-oriented, top-down approaches.

Biofortification is the idea of breeding crops to increase their nutritional can be done either through conventional selective breeding, or through genetic tification differs from ordinary fortification because it focuses on making plant foods more nutritious as the plants are growing, rather than having nutrients added to the foods when they are being processed.

Cost‐Effectiveness of Biofortification form the book, ‘Global Issues, Global Solutions, Volume Two’, published by rice is being developed for release in Bangladesh by ; however, achieving the iron target in rice may take. Rice kernels can be fortified with several micronutrients, such as iron, folic acid and other B-complex vitamins, vitamin A and zinc.

WHO recommendations. Fortification of rice with iron is recommended as a public health strategy to improve the iron status of populations, in settings where rice is a staple food.*.

Some of the prominent biofortification projects around the world include. Iron-bio fortification of rice, beans, cassava, legumes and sweet potato.

Zinc-bio fortification of rice, beans, maize sweet potato, and wheat. from book Biofortification: Introduction, Approaches Research has been investigating the genetic potential to increase bioavailable Fe and Zn in staple food crops such as rice, wheat, maize. Biofortification may therefore present a way to reach populations where supplementation and conventional fortification activities may be difficult to implement and/or limited.

Examples of biofortification projects include: iron-biofortification of rice. Rice (Oryza sativa), a staple food, is their source of nutrients, contributing up to 70% of daily calories for more than half of the world’s population.

Solving “hidden hunger” through rice biofortification would be a sustainable approach for those people who mainly consume rice and have limited access to.
