Hello all,

Following frequent stock-outs of plumpy nut (in Haiti), I would like to know if you would have alternative equivalents?
Moreover, in Haiti, peanut paste is frequently consumed and very accessible.

I suspect that many trials / studies (sorghum flour, peanut paste, banana, egg yolk, moringa?) must have been conducted, but would you have any "precise recipes" that have been validated and tested locally?

Thank you for sharing experiences and knowledge,

Dear Andre,

There is not a tested alternative to Plumpy’nut/Medika Mamba in Haiti.
We produce this product and always have the product for donation ( if we have the funds) or for sale in Cap Haitien or PaP. Thank you for your work with malnourished children.

Patricia Wolff.
