The Department of Science and Technology-Food and Nutrition Research Institute (DOST-FNRI) is formulating an enhanced nutribun (E-Nutribun) in response to the need for healthier bread.
DOST Secretary Fortunato dela Peña said four different formulations were tested with varying quantity of ingredients. The first reformulated E-Nutribun consisted of bread flour, squash puree, sugar, skim milk, shortening, salt, bread improver and yeast.
Dela Peña said the E-Nutribun would be for the implementation of the government’s Supplementary Feeding Program during community quarantine or other similar emergencies.
The E-Nutribun is set to be launched during Nutrition Month before the end of July. AAC
