Abstract: Objective: To review and analyse criteria for vitamin supplementation and fortification in Spain.Design: Systematic review of scientific literature and simulation analysis of food fortification.Methods: A simulation analysis using a fortified beverage was performed in a random sample of 2855 children aged 2 to 24 years in Spain.Results: High-risk groups for vitamin supplementation and fortification in Spain are highlighted, and target vitamins considered have been: folic acid, vitamin A, vitamin E, vitamin D and vitamin B-12 (particularly in the elderly). A beverage fortified with vitamins C, A. B-1 and B-6 may contribute to improving the intake of all of these vitamins with the exception of vitamin A, since the Recommended Nutrient Intake is already covered with current consumption.Conclusions: A detailed knowledge of nutritional status helps to ensure the rationale and follow up of nutrient supplementation and fortification.
