ABSTRACT

  • Bio-fortification:

Greek word “bios” means “life” and Latin word “fortificare” means “make strong”Bio-fortification:

Biofortification is a method of breeding crops to increase their nutritional value  Bio-fortification refers to increasing genetically the bio-available  mineral content of food crops (Brinch-Pederson et al., 2007).

Bio-fortification 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.

Given the severity of mineral malnutrition in humans worldwide, biofortification of micronutrients, especially Fe and Zn, in cereals must be encouraged. Although agronomic strategies (e.g., fertilizer strategy) can also increase micronutrient concentrations in wheat grain, conventional breeding strategies are always regarded as a more sustainable and cost-effective solution to reduce mineral malnutrition in the long run. However, there are still many challenges.
