Overview

Overview

We produce milk-peanut formula Ready-to-Use Foods (RUFs) based upon standard United Nations guidelines. Ready-to-Use Foods (RUFs), also called “Lipid based Nutrient Supplements (LNS)”, are highly fortified, oil-based nutrient dense pastes specifically designed for the treatment of malnutrition. They are made from varying combinations of grains, pulses and seeds, milk powder, sugar, oil, vitamins and minerals. They are precooked and ready to eat straight from the pack. As they are oil-based, bacteria cannot grow in RUFs which can be stored safely for up to one year without the need for refrigeration. In a resource poor setting, these products are literally life-savers!

Ready-to-use foods fall into three main categories:

  • Ready-to-Use Therapeutic Food (RUTF) – targeting severe acute malnutrition in children and adults. RUTF is for institutional use upon the recommendation of a trained professional.
  • Ready-to-Use Supplementary Food (RUSF) – targeting moderate acute malnutrition in children and adults.
  • Ready-to-Use Complementary Food (RUCF) – targeting chronic malnutrition among young children.

VALID Nutrition Malawi

Wonderful piece from WFP Malawi working towards reduction efforts to the Stunting problem. Valid Nutrition Malawi has produced over 44 million sachets of Ready-to-Use Therapeutic Food (RUTF), enough to treat around 350,000 children with Severe Acute Malnutrition (SAM). By producing locally in Malawi & with support of customers such as WFP, UNICEF and the Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI) we have been preventing the need for RUTF to be imported. Furthermore, we are assisting local farmers and suppliers as well as providing employment & skills transfer. All this has a hugely beneficial multiplier effect on the local economy.

We at Valid fully supports the drive that ensure a fair start for all children in life which ensures they get good nutrition at critical stages of development, the 1000 initial days of life from conception till age of 2 years!
