    Fortified Cookies

    Eradicating anemia one cookie at a time

    As part of its commitment to CSR, Sera Scandia Group's inspiration and vision was to emulate the successful implementation of a national product fortification policy that effectively eradicated anemia in Chile (1970-1985). This project consists of creating cookies fortified with heme iron from spray dried hemoglobin.

     

    The cookies are made with basic ingredients consisting of flour, sugar, butter, vanilla extract, sodium bicarbonate, and other ingredients to prevent spoiling. Since the hemoglobin gives the cookies a brown color, cocoa was added to improve taste and appearance.

     

     

    Why Use Hemoglobin?

    • Heme iron is better absorbed than non-heme iron.
    • When added to food, it is better absorbed than non-heme iron from vegetables and grains.
    • Iron in hemoglobin is not affected by the iron absorption inhibitors present in food. Blood is usually a discarded by-product of slaughter and thus readily available
