In Bamako, Mali, the “Equinut” project developed a recipe for a highly nutritious food product that can be used to treat malnourished children ages 6 to 59 months in Mali and eventually in all of West Africa. Researchers collaborated with farmers and local communities to develop this recipe based on a traditional peanut paste called Di-dégué. AKF also trained farmers to produce high quality aflatoxin-free peanuts. The project will directly benefit over 14,000 children under age five.
