Abstract

Trials were conducted to compare a corn/soy blend ready-to-use supplementary food (RUSF) enriched with milk powder (CSB++) with two other RUSF products in the treatment of children with moderate acute malnutrition (MAM) and severe acute malnutrition (SAM) in Malawi. Each of the studies showed that milk protein has a significant impact on the growth and prevention of malnutrition. The supplements that used milk protein provided more benefits to the children than those that did not use milk, or used less milk.
