The acceptability and intake of lipid-based pastes as a food supplement in a South African context
This descriptive study included 103 children aged 12-60 months, 39 older children and 291 adults, and was performed to assess the sensory acceptability of a lipid-based food supplement. Lipid-based pastes were found to be highly acceptable, although concern exists regarding the recommended portion sizes, especially for young children with poor appetite.
