Biofortification is a sustainable way to alleviate micronutrient deficiencies in at-risk populations. To optimize the biofortification approach, it is important to consider both the quantities and bioavailability of the target micronutrients.

In this study we use the sensitive and non-destructive micro-PIXE technique to reveal the distribution of iron, zinc, manganese and phosphorus within soybean seeds.

No regions with increased accumulation of iron, zinc, or manganese were observed in the cotyledons.
