Post a reply: Influence of cold on RUTF quality

Use of en-net is subject to the Terms and Conditions.

Dear colleagues, I am currently working in a CMAM programme in Nepal and the difference of temperature between day and night has caused us some slight troubles. Although the sachets are stored in metal box inside health centers, due to the cold, the RUTF (PPN) paste tends to become harder and is thus difficult to consume, or considered as damaged. I would like to know if the change of temperature have a significant influence on the nutritional quality of the RUTF? I would also be interested in sharing experiences on how to avoid it with colleagues working in similar conditions (cold environment or with high temperature variation). By advance, thank you very much Best regards
