Energy-dense and protein-rich food for young children 6 months to 3 years old.

Functional Foods R&D Program
Research on plant-based food with potential health properties other than nutritional benefits, like root crops, vegetables, fruits and herbs. Food products are then developed based on these studies.

Isotonic Drink
It is a coconut-based shelf-stable isotonic drink that can help in preventing dehydration, assist in maintaining body’s balance of electrolytes, and supply energy during or after heavy physical activities. As part of ITDI's disaster mitigation initiatives, it also provides disaster victims an added energy boost and hydration.

Mungbean-Coconut Milk Beverage
DOST-ITDI has pioneered in developing a nutritious beverage from mungbean that had been infused with coconut milk. This product is a shelf- stable, non- dairy, and ready-to-drink beverage made from mungbean and coconut milk as base materials. An all-natural, healthy, and nutritious drink, it is an excellent source of amino acids and high fiber and a good alternative to dairy-based drinks.

Ferns as Functional Foods
The project focuses on the development of a technological ingredient in the form of functional food powder from selected fern species for the primary prevention of inflammatory and cardio vascular diseases. Characterization, assessment of its efficacy, and evaluation of the products are among the main research activities
