What are the concerns associated with fortified products that may deter growth of the market?

Small and medium salt-producing companies face financial complexities to manage their expenses. Moreover, the blending machines require high capital investment which can be a deterrent for the companies. Iodized salt may occasionally experience negative effects from the addition of iron, most notably discoloration.

These sensory modifications can lead to the food product being regarded as "adulterated" and possibly making it unacceptable in the eyes of rural and vulnerable people. As a result of higher input costs these salts are often sold at higher rates that increase consumer costs and factory prices. In order to manage the market demand in spite of higher prices, manufacturers have to put the effort into sensitizing their beneficiaries about the benefits of fortified products.
