F-75 is a therapeutic milk powder. 

For Children after 6 months age and for Adults

F-75 therapeutic milk is suitable for 6 months old children and adults.

When a child suffering from severe acute malnutrition arrives at the hospital, he/she often shows medical complications (infections, hepatic insufficiency, etc.). A child with such complications is unable to tolerate usual levels of proteins, fats and sodium. Therefore, it is important to begin nutritional treatment by giving foods with low levels of proteins, fats and sodium, but rich in carbohydrates.

F-75 therapeutic milk should be used in therapeutic feeding centers under medical supervision, and must never be given directly to family members or caregivers. Therapeutic milk F-75 should only be administered under medical supervision and nutritionists’ recommendations.

To treat Severe Acute Malnutrition - Phase 1

F-75 therapeutic milk was designed for the stabilisation (recovery of normal metabolic function and nutrition-electrolytic balance) of patients suffering from severe acute malnutrition, while their medical complications are being treated during phase 1 of the treatment, in accordance with the treatment protocol drawn up by the World Health Organisation (WHO 1999, see references on the right column).

With its caloric density of 75 kcal per 100 ml of reconstituted milk, F-75 is not intended to make children put on weight, and its use should be limited to phase 1 (on average, 3 days).

NB: In phase 2, the nutritional recovery phase, F-100 therapeutic milk is used (or a ready-to-use nutritional equivalent such as Plumpy’nut®, depending on the child's state of health).
