Medicine Mondiale has developed a predigest protein formulation, Proteinforte, to fight kwashiokor, acute diarrhea, and malnourishment. Medicine Mondiale operates out of New Zealand. The predigested protein formula is made from products of the food industry and finally formed into a freeze dried powder. The product is specially formulated to be easily absorbed into the gut by including individual amino acids. These individual amino acids are formed by enzymes taken from a kiwifruit that are highly affective at breaking down bigger proteins.
Medicine Mondiale is currently building a plant in Nepal to produce Proteinforte, and is partnering with a China-based company to distribute in 14 countries.
