Improving bioavailability of iron in Indian diets through food-based approaches for the control of iron deficiency anaemia



Improving bioavailability of iron in Indian diets through food-based approaches for the control of iron deficiency anaemia



Food, Nutrition and Agriculture (32): 51-61



Iron deficiency anaemia (IDA) is a significant public health problem in India. National and regional surveys of anaemia indicate that the problem could reach as high as 74% in children under 3 years of age, 85% in expectant mothers and 90% among adolescent girls in some population groups.
