Quick question: Whom do you recommend we be in touch with -- either in Scotland orelsewhere in Europe -- who is an expert in fortifying grains. This is in regard to our project to figure out alternate methods to infuse micronutrients into diets of emergency victims in Africa.

Our focus is on in-country fortification techniques for food aid bulk grains: wheat, corn.

Thanks,

This is a reply to Steven Hansch from Lindsay Allen, Prof. in Department of Nutrition, UC

Davis, California.

You might get help from:

1. Peter Ranum, Program Director, Micronutrient Assessment Program, SUSTAIN, 1400 16th St NW, Suite 210, Washington DC 20036. He is an expert on fortification and the dissemination of PL480 wheat, corn, soy etc. used for refugee and other feeding programs world-wide.

2. Penny Nestel at OMNI (Opportunities for Micronutrient Interventions); penny_nestelatjsi.com - in Arlington VA is the nutrition coordinator for a wide variety of micronutrient intervention studies and trials;

3. And Venkatesh Mannar, of the Micronutrient Initiative in Canada also has wide international experience in this area (vmannaratidrc.ca).

I know these people are not in Europe, but they do work in Africa and would also know Eurpean contacts.
