WHAT DOES PLUMPY MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Plumpy'nut

Plumpy'Nut is a peanut-based paste in a plastic wrapper for treatment of severe acute malnutrition manufactured by a French company, Nutriset. Removing the need for hospitalization, the 92 gram packets of this paste can be administered at home and allow larger numbers to be treated. Plumpy'Nut may be referred to in scientific literature as a Ready-to-Use Therapeutic Food alongside other RUTFs such as F-100, a solid form of therapeutic milk. Nutriset's legal actions over patent issues intellectual property rights have been criticized by Médecins Sans Frontières, Charitable organizations and Non-governmental organizations.
