Summary

This report introduces new food supplements to help reduce the incidence of neural tube defects (NTDs), and to tackle the re-emergence of iodine deficiency in the population. FSANZ developed two mandatory standards, effective from October 2009, which require the addition of folic acid to bread-making flour in Australia, and iodine to bread in Australia and New Zealand.
