It is essential that they require hardly any preparation and are bioavailable and efficient. Hence, RUTF have a specific quality requirement and need to provide a diverse and functioning nutritional profile. BASF provides RUTF that are formulated with nutrients which guarantee the biological absorption of these nutrients.
