About

The improvements are designed to:

  • Align the production of therapeutic milk (TM) to industry standards for production of specialized milks to provide better quality assurance during manufacturing
  • Reduce the risk of contamination and incorrect dosing during preparation and storage of therapeutic milk at the end user level

F-75 and F-100 are used for treatment of children with severe acute malnutrition (SAM)  with medical complications in an inpatient setting. Both products require reconstitution with clean safe drinking water before use. They are to be administered by trained health care staff.
