  Fortification - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Field fortifications are extemporized by troops in the field, perhaps assisted by such local labor and tools as may be procurable, and with materials that do not require much preparation, such as earth, brushwood and light timber.
Medieval-style fortifications were largely obsoleted with the arrival of cannons on the 14th century battlefield.
Fortifications in the age of flpowder evolved into much lower structures with greater use of ditches and earth ramparts that would absorb and disperse the energy of cannon fire.

 Compound (fortification) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In military science, a compound is a type of fortification made up of walls surrounding several buildings in the center of a large piece of land.
The walls can either serve the purpose of being tall, thick, and inpenetrable, in which case they would be made of wood, stone, or some other like substance; or dangerous to attempt to scale, in which case they could be made of barbed wire or electrified.
Compounds are designed to double as living spaces and military structures in the middle of hostile territory; they are also used by the extremely wealthy, powerful, or paranoid, to protect themselves against real or imagined threats to themselves or their possessions.

 Food fortification - the debate continues
Fortification could also introduce additional nutrients not present in the original food or present in very small quantities (such as vitamin A in maize).
While the role of food fortification is not to provide 100% of RDA provided through consumption through one single food, the fortified maize will go along way to achieve vitamin A sufficiency, especially when combined with vitamin A from other sources.
Given the proposed level of fortification (7.0 mg iron per 200 g dry maize meal) and level of consumption for children 1-3 years old and taking a bioavailability factor ranging between 0.5- 4.5%, a child would absorb between 0.035 to 0.31 mg of iron, i.e.

 ANNEX 4 - MICRONUTRIENT FORTIFICATION OF FOOD: TECHNOLOGY AND QUALITY CONTROL*
The fortification of milk commonly involves the addition of vitamins A and D. Since milk is an oil-in-water emulsion, the possibility exists to add vitamins in their oily form or use water dispersable forms of these.
In the iron fortification of powdered non-fat dry milk, ferrous sulphate at a level of 10 ppm was found to be stable for a period of 12 months.
In the fortification of salt with iron, it must first be ground to a coarse powder to facilitate uniform mixing and distribution of the iron fortificant.

Although targeted fortification is relatively easy to design for infant foods such as formulas and commercial infant cereals, or for schoolchildren through school feeding programs including such foods as fortified drinks or cookies, it is more difficult to target a fortified food specifically for adult fertile women.
Finally, the major foodstuffs that are used as iron fortification vehicles are discussed in relation to potential organoleptic problems, the presence of absorption inhibitors, and possible fortification compounds.
In general, the freely water-soluble compounds are highly bioavailable in rodents and humans, as are compounds that are water insoluble but soluble in dilute acids.

 Nutrition Reviews: Lessons learned with iron fortification in Central America / Discussion   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
Salt fortification with iodine was introduced since the late 40s and 5Os1; sugar fortification with vitamin A is carried out in national programs in Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, and Nicaragua, beginning in the 70s2; and cereal flour fortification with iron and B vitamins was introduced in the 60s.
Salt 3 and sugar4 fortification have been carefully characterized and evaluated, and the impact of these two interventions to prevent and to control iodine3 and vitamin A deficiency,4 respectively, is well established.
This did not happen with cereal flour fortification, however, and the effect of this intervention is unknown.

An effective fortification programme is defined as one that will reach at least 50% of the population group most vulnerable to vitamin A deficiency, and a safe programme is one that presents little risk of vitamin A toxicity to those most susceptible.
Fortification is generally considered to be effective and feasible if the food that is fortified is eaten regularly by all population groups at risk of deficiency, and if the food is centrally processed in a small number of sites.
This information will be important in setting fortification levels for the vehicle of choice, because the stability of the vitamin A in the fortified food may be affected by storage and processing conditions (e.g., exposure to air and light), and by the cooking method.
