WHAT MAKES THIS PORRIDGE SO SPECIAL?

e’Pap is an affordable, tasty, nutrient-dense porridge that is backed by science, packed with love. The porridge is also kid-approved and comes in various flavours they enjoy. e’Pap contains 24 micronutrients and four macronutrients which maximise absorption and bio-efficacy in the human body. It’s backed by years of scientific research The key criteria in the formulation of e’Pap is that the nutrients are in a form that allows them to be effectively absorbed (high bioavailability) and effectively used by the body (high bio-efficacy)

FIGHT HIDDEN HUNGER

Malnutrition (“hidden hunger”) can easily affect children from low-income households where foods with high volume or density are prioritised above foods with excellent nutrients. Hidden Hunger affects the national health, social welfare and economic welfare of countries. It can be expressed, not necessarily through a hungry, empty belly, but a compromised immune system, a lack of focus and concentration and even depression.
