  • Project Lead(s): James Li

    Is there a chance kids could snack their way to good health? This project is developing snacks fortified with iron-rich rice bran, an abundant by-product of rice processing typically discarded, burned, fed to animals or turned into cooking oil. The project will engage local expertise in food and chemistry, and capitalize on the “culture of snacking” in the Philippines, a country where iron deficiency affects 70% of children, leading to anemia and other debilitating conditions.
