Nutrition & Supplements Segment Continue to Witness Significant Growth

The term “lipid-based nutrient supplements” (LNS) refers generically to a range of fortified, lipid-based products, including products like Ready-to-Use-Therapeutic Foods (RUTF) (a large daily ration with relatively low micronutrient concentration) as well as highly-concentrated supplements (1-4 teaspoons/day, providing< 100 kcal/day) to be used for “point-of-use” fortification and RUTF have been successfully used for the management of severe acute malnutrition (SAM) among children in emergency settings. LNS has been used to treat moderate acute malnutrition; however, there is no consensus on it being more effective than CSB (Corn soy blend). LNS is given in smaller doses, more so because they are more concentrated. These supplements are designed to provide 50 to 100% of the day’s energy requirements.
