To combat Iron deficiency in Low and Middle-Income Countries, sustainable food-based solutions have to be implemented to serve populations, not only individuals. One solution is the introduction of iron biofortified staple crops on market level. Before market level introduction, we need to assess the iron bioavailability of the new biofortified breed. In our study this is the iron from a new bio fortified Orange Fleshed Sweet Potato breed.
In this study we compare the fractional and total iron absorption of a normal Orange Flesh Sweet Potato variety and a high-iron bio fortified variety in Malawian women of reproductive age with marginal iron status.
