Milk Fortification: Technology


The technology to fortify milk is simple, well-established, available, and the cost of fortification is low. Vitamin A and D premixes are widely available in India. Cost of fortification is less than 2 paisa per litre of milk.

The premix for Vitamin A is in the form of Retinyl Acetate/Retinyl Palmitate/Retinyl Propionate and Vitamin D is Ergocalciferol/ Cholecaliferol. Vitamins are available in two forms: water-soluble and fat-soluble form. The fortification process does not require any sophisticated equipment.
