Microparticles could help fight malnutrition

Researchers have now developed a new way to fortify staple foods with these micronutrients by encapsulating them in a biocompatible polymer that prevents the nutrients from being degraded during storage or cooking. In a small clinical trial, they showed that women who ate bread fortified with encapsulated iron were able to absorb iron from the food. https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2019/11/191113153041.htm
