Abstract:

Malnutrition is still public health problem in some parts of the world and causes irreversible damage at infant stage. Infants require high energy and nutrient dense foods because of their high growth velocity. Feeding fortified complementary blended foods is one of the options to treat malnourished infants. These foods are prepared with cereal-legume blend, oil, sugar, vitamin/minerals and animal source protein. Complementary foods with high sugar content (> 15%) are not recommended to treat malnourished group. Animal source protein in complementary foods leads to hike in production cost. The purpose of this paper was to study the complementary foods for infants to make alternative inexpensive product formulation with low added sugar. Market survey was conducted on existing cereal-legume based foods for infants. Based on ingredients composition, products were short listed and a food formulation was selected to make an alternative. Kansas State University developed Corn-Soy blend and Sorghum-Soy blends, advanced versions in complementary foods were considered as control in this study for formulating an alternative composition. Complementary food with inexpensive plant source protein and sugar content less than 10% was recommended to meet nutrient density.
