In India, women of reproductive age are undernourished which results in the premature birth of child, miscarriages, and even later in life changes of increasing risk of diabetes, hypertension, and obesity. Iron deficiency among the males also imparts a socio-economic burden of the country. Millions in India depends on rice and wheat to fill their stomachs, but those staple foods lack important vitamins and minerals. India is the latest country to enter the realm of biofortification. Therefore, there has been a need to explore the strategies to ensure the biofortification management to finally prove a boon for the food security. The study was carried out to provide some of the information needed for an effective & sustainable program to control anemia in women
