Research Grant Reports

Food composition tables (FCTs) are an essential tool for planning interventions in food security, nutrition and health. FCTs provide information on the nutrient composition of foods with specific reference to energy, nutrients (e.g. protein, fat, carbohydrate, vitamins and minerals) and other nutritionally significant food constituents (e.g. total dietary fibre, anti-nutrients, phyto-nutrients, etc). The Bangladesh FCT have been revised and updated as a tool to support the government in improving food and dietary planning.
