RCM welcomes folic acid flour fortification consultation announcement

The Government has announced that it will consult on the mandatory fortification of flour with folic acid in a bid to tackle fetal abnormalities. A decision is expected by Spring 2019.

Commenting on the announcement, Clare Livingstone, Professional Policy Advisor at the Royal College of Midwives (RCM), says: "Introducing the mandatory fortification of flour will bring the UK in line with many other countries including the United States and Canada. They have this in place because the evidence about the benefits of this is very strong. The impact of this in those countries has been marked in reducing incidences of fetal abnormality."
