Improved Nutrition through Staple Foods in Africa


 
The INSTAPA project, financed as part of the 7th Framework Programme of the European Commission, focuses on the improvement of millet-, sorghum-, maize-, and cassava-based foods for young children in sub-Saharan Africa to safely prevent deficiencies of iron, zinc, and vitamin A to improve immune function and cognitive development.
The project is conducted by research scientists from Europe, Africa and USA (Partners).
