Peanut Butter Project Tests Beneficial Effects Of Whey Protein On Malnourished African Children

January 24, 2013: 12:00 AM EST
The humanitarian organization known as the Project Peanut Butter (PPB) that developed a Ready-To-Use Therapeutic Food to battle childhood malnutrition in African countries, is launching a clinical trial to determine whether adding whey protein to the mix would provide even greater health benefits. The current nutritional supplement – a mix of peanuts, powdered milk, oil, sugar, vitamins and minerals – is energy dense, resists spoiling, does not need to be cooked and can be given in small amounts. The organization is testing whether lactose-rich whey permeate – a by-product of cheese making– would benefit immature digestive systems by promoting mineral  absorption and stimulating beneficial bacteria growth in the gut, creating a stronger digestive and immune system.
