Food enrichment is the practice of adding micronutrients back to a food product that were lost during processing.

Foods that are labeled “enriched” have had nutrients added to them to replace those lost during processing. For example, when whole wheat is milled into white flour, the nutritious germ and bran and the vitamins, minerals, micro-nutrients, and fiber they contain are stripped away and lost.

White flour and white flour products were some of the first foods to be enriched and fortified in the advent of food processing companies. Many of the nutrients added to enriched foods are manufactured in laboratories.

There is no easy solution but becoming aware of what you are consuming is a step in the right direction. Further, choosing more whole foods and locally grown foods is another step in the right direction.

The more you know about what food manufacturers have done to adulterate our foods, the better. It is with this knowledge you can make food choices that are healthier for you, your family and the environment.
