Severe Acute Malnutrition

RUTF is an energy-dense, mineral and vitamin-enriched food that requires no preparation, specifically designed to treat Severe Acute Malnutrition (SAM).

RUTFs are a revolutionary development in treating malnutrition and has similar nutrient composition to F-100 therapeutic
milk, which is used to treat SAM in hospital settings.

Therapeutic foods contain added minerals and vitamins and are excellent sources of protein and energy.

And because they are single food sources loaded with all required nutrients, they are an efficient way to help malnourished children recover from malnutrition.
