Nutrition Lizard: What is a fortified food?
Fortified foods contain added vitamins and/or minerals that were not originally part of the food. This is typically done in an effort to prevent common deficiencies and can be very beneficial!
For example, calcium is added to orange juice, vitamins A and D are added to milk, and iodine to salt.
