Abstract
Aim: In Australia, the mandatory fortification of salt used in bread with iodine has recently been approved by the regulatory authorities (Food Standards Australia New Zealand). Apart from thiamine fortification of bread that has been in place since 1991, no other mandatory fortification programs exist in the country. The aim of the present study was to explore women’s understanding of mandatory fortification as a public health strategy and their opinions regarding its appropriateness for addressing the re-emergence of iodine deficiency.
