Abstract

Vitamin A nutrition is of profound importance to human health. An insufficient intake of vitamin A/provitamin A from foods remains a leading cause of vitamin A deficiency in humans. Besides vitamin A supplementation and fortification of processed foods, biofortification of major staple food crops constitutes a crucial step toward dietary intervention of vitamin A deficiency. This chapter focuses on progress in genetic engineering as well as breeding for enhanced provitamin A accumulation in grain, oilseed, legume, tuber, stem, fruit, and vegetable crops. In addition, nutritional studies on several vitamin A biofortified crops are reviewed.
