Sugar Fortification

Sugar fortification with vitamin A is a common method to combat
vitamin A malnutrition. BASF offers the vitamin A powder
Dry Vitamin A-Palmitate 250, which is highly suitable for sugar fortification. Its stability in bulk as well as in sugar is excellent because it is effectively protected by anti-oxidants.

In addition, the fine particle size of BASF’s vitamin A powder ensures a homogeneous distribution in sugar.
