The Global Fortification Data Exchange (GFDx) is an analysis and visualization tool that provides free access to data on food fortification. In its first release, the GFDx includes indicators on food fortification legislation from 1942 to the present as well as available standards, food availability, and intake for over 230 countries. Users can generate custom maps, charts, and tables within the tool, or download data for offline analysis. The GFDx was developed by a cross-agency team in response to the 2015 Arusha Statement on Food Fortification comprising representatives from Food Fortification Initiative (FFI)Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN)Iodine Global Network (IGN), and Micronutrient Forum.
