Joint FAO/ WHO expert meeting on tropane alkaloids 30 March– 3 April 2020.

Abstract

Assisting 86.7 million people in around 83 countries each year, the United Nations World Food Programme is the leading humanitarian organization that saves and changes lives by delivering food assistance in emergencies and working with communities to improve nutrition and build resilience. The humanitarian organization focuses on the poorest and the most vulnerable people around the world. These include people with high nutrient needs, such as young children, adolescent girls, pregnant women and nursing mothers. The foods distributed vary from common commodities disseminated among the population in general, to Specialized Nutritious Foods (SNF) given to target beneficiaries for the specific purpose of prevention and treatment of malnutrition. One of the SNF products is Super Cereal, which consists of pre-cooked corn, soybean and micronutrients. Approximately 130 000 MT Super Cereal is distributed to 4.9 million people every year with the objective of improving food security and nutrition.
