Plumpy'nut is

100% GOOD



Plumpy'nut, more commonly known as Plumpy, is a peanut-based food for use in famine relief which was formulated by André Briend, a French scientist in 1999.

It is a high protein and high energy peanut-based paste in a foil wrapper that can be distributed to children at home rather than in specialist feeding stations and can be eaten without any preparation. It tastes like a slightly sweeter kind of peanut butter. It is categorized by the WHO as a Ready-to-Use Therapeutic Food (RUTF).

Insightful and very cool piece Ellen! I love how your mind works! You always intrigue and tickle my brain. Never heard of Plumpy nut. Kind of a weird name but an amazing contribution to a global problem. Beautifully rendered too!
