This chapter discusses Indonesia's mandatory implementation of food fortification particularly on wheat flour. This wheat flour fortification policy was a huge victory for micronutrient advocates, who finally succeeded in implementing a public fortification policy in the country. Wheat flour became the first commodity, aside from iodized salt, to be fortified as required by law in Indonesia. In particular, the new regulation required all wheat flour sold in Indonesia—imported or domestic—be fortified with iron, zinc, folic acid, and B vitamins, as mandated by the Indonesian National Standard (SNI). The rest of the chapter recounts the food fortification of MSG, and instant noodles.

Keywords:   food fortification, wheat flour fortification, wheat flour, MSG, instant noodles
