Joseph House International Food Relief also manufacture's meals which have been formulated by food scientists to provide a rich source of easily digestible protein, carbohydrates, and vitamins needed by any malnourished child's body and mind. This food also accommodates the broad diversity of ethnic tastes and religious differences around the world.
A team was brought together to determine the nutritional requirements of malnourished and starving children worldwide. This team of scientists and nutritionists from Cargill, General Mills, Archer Daniels Midland, and Pillsbury, developed a specific food formula that meets the nutritional needs of children and that is far superior to the widespread rice and beans mix used by many feeding programs. The specific formula took nearly three years to develop. Rice was chosen because it is so widely recognized and accepted worldwide.
We use premium polished long-grain white rice. We chose this rice specifically because of its long shelf life and quality. The soy we use is fortified with ten vitamins in addition to its high protein content. The vegetables provide color, nutrition, and flavor to the food. The vitamin formula is a proprietary formula and is the "secret sauce" that goes into the food. We provide 21 vitamins and minerals with each serving of food. Each bag contains six servings which are easily prepared by boiling the contents in 6 cups of water. This will serve six children and provide each the vitamins and minerals they need for an entire day. This food provides not just a meal but better health for starving children. The meal ingredients are formulated to provide a rich source of easily digestible protein, carbohydrates, and vitamins needed by an undernourished children's body and mind. This food also offers all 9 of the essential amino acids required for complete nutrition, something that can't be said about other typical food relief sources such as rice or beans alone.
