Functional Vitamin B2-Enriched Bread to Help Mitigate Malnutrition

Vitamin B2 deficiency can lead to disorders of the mouth, skin, and genitalia.

In China, the vitamin B2 deficiency rate is over 85%, but most people are not aware of it.

To deal with it, we overexpressed GTP synthetase (ADE4) and vitamin B2 synthetases (RIB1 and RIB7) in the baker’s yeast, Saccharomyces cerevisiae.

Bakeries can produce bread and steamed buns by using our yeast at no extra cost, and supply vitamin B2-enriched food for the general public to mitigate malnutrition.
