To remain fit and healthy, you need a balanced diet including essential vitamins and minerals. But what if your diet consists mainly of staples like rice, bread, or corn because other foods are not available or affordable? If so, you will likely develop "hidden hunger," a deficiency in essential micronutrients.
Although often invisible, hidden hunger negatively impacts health and development, and ultimately, economic well-being. About one-third of the world's population suffers from hidden hunger, mostly in developing countries. This is more than the population of Europe, the Americas, and Australia combined.
Hidden hunger's impact starts early. Nutritional deficiencies during the first 1,000 days, between the start of a mother's pregnancy and the child's second birthday, impede the child's ability to properly grow, learn, and ultimately reach his or her full potential. It can be devastating for long-term health, and ultimately, society's growth and prosperity.
Fortunately, the world is fighting hidden hunger. And as part of this effort, DSM's Nutrition Improvement Program is an experienced and reliable partner, driven by our Quality for Life promise. We work with international and local partners, and develop safe, affordable, and nutritious products. They are of the highest quality and tailored to the needs of people in the developing world.
An example of the many successful solutions provided by DSM is our micronutrient powders. Sprinkled over a meal, these powders are widely accepted because they are easy to use and do not change the food's color or taste. Studies show that these micronutrient powders are effective. We can also fortify both staples and processed foods, such as snacks and beverages. In addition, for people with specific nutritional needs, we developed tailor-made solutions, such as micronutrient blends used in therapeutic foods and dietary supplements.
DSM 所提供許多成功解方的例證之一是我們的微營養素粉。灑在餐點上，這些營養素粉廣泛被接受，因為它們使用容易且不會改變食物的顏色或風味。研究顯示這些微營養素粉能產生效果。 我們還可以增加日常主食及加工食品的營養價值，例如點心和飲料。此外，對有特別營養需求的人們，我們發展出客製化解決方案，例如用在醫療食品及營養補給品中的微營養素混合劑。
Leading global economists suggest that improving nutrition is the best investment that can be made in global health and development. We want a healthier life and brighter future for everybody. Together we can end hidden hunger.
