THERAPEUTIC NUTRITION

As a part of our commitment to fight malnutrition across the world, we extend our efforts to the least nourished people in the world. We are one of the few worldwide fortification providers who also produces RUTF (READY-TO-USE THERAPEUTIC FOODS) and (LNS) LIPID-BASED NUTRIENT SUPPLEMENTS.

There are three varieties:

  • PRO ACTIVA® F-75
  • PRO ACTIVA® F-100
  • PRO ACTIVA® 500

F-75 and F-100:

F-75 is a high-energy milk (HEM) product used in the most severe cases of malnutrition. It is a ‘starter’ formula given to infants whose bodies are unable to tolerate regular nutrients.

F-100 is the ‘catch-up’ formula given after the infant has passed the most extreme circumstances, although the situation remains extremely serious.

Both varieties are extremely high in energy and contain the largest amount of nutrients that the infant is able to properly absorb. They contain milk solids, sugar, maltodextrin, vegetable fat, and specialized Vitamin and Mineral premixes to provide essential micronutrients.

F-75 and F-100 are used by numerous NGOs and government organizations that operate in severely malnourished areas.

ProACTIVA 500:

ProACTIVA 500 is a lipid-based high energy food for the rehabilitation of Severely Acute Malnourished (SAM) children and Moderately Acute Malnourished (MAM) Children. It facilitates in the home-based therapy of these children. ProACTIVA 500 is a combination of locally procured peanut butter (20%), skim milk powder (30%), sugar powder (28%) and vegetable oil (20%), and vitamin-mineral premix (CMV). It is produced under the technical guidance of the Centre for Technology Alternatives for Rural Areas (IIT-Bombay), the NRRC Project (Sion Hospital, Mumbai), and Toddler Food Partners (USA).
