What is the maximum temperature that does not affect the potency of Ready-to-Use Therapeutic Food (RUTF)?

Hi Maha, thank you for your question. Technical specifications from UNICEF (2022) state RUTF is best stored below 30°C -

I have also linked below previous en-net conversations on RUTF spoilage due to extreme temperatures that might be of interest to you.
