Nutri view SPECIAL ISSUE 2003 2 Mandatory food enrichment The following tables show the status with regard to mandatory food enrichment in June 2003, replacing those we published in 2000. Our aim has been to include all countries worldwide where such regulations are in force. The foods currently used for man- datory enrichment and included in this overview are cereal products, dairy products, fats and oils, and sugar. Regulations for enrichment of salt, infant formulas and foods for special dietary uses (“dietetic foods”) also exist, but are not shown here. Foods enriched on a voluntary basis (e.g. non-staples such as breakfast cereals, beverages and snacks) are not included, although the amounts permitted may also be regulated.
