Typical Specifications of PowerFlour

DESCRIPTION:

A white to creamy, NATURAL MALTED BARLEY FLOUR with a pleasant accented malt aroma and flavour.

ADVANTAGES:

  1. Diet enhancer to help infants, usually between 6 and 9 months, better digest the complex starch diet used as a staple in most developing countries.
  2. PowerFlour, even used in small quantities, is capable of breaking down large quantities of starchy staples.
  3. Simplicity and convenience. PowerFlour is easily added to any heated starchy porridge and mixed. No special preparations are needed.
  4. Because very little PowerFlour is needed to be effective, it is very cost effective to ship it where it is needed the most (famine-stricken areas).
