The assessment of nutrients content of triple mix complementary food for infants

The research was carried out to assess the nutrient content of triple mix complementary food for anemic infants. A composite flour from sorghum ,soybean and moringa was formulated and the nutrient composition at different ratios were analyzed in the laboratory .Sorghum and moringa were assessed at the ratio of 85:15.Sorghum and soybean at 70:30 and sorghum,soybean and moringa at 70;20:10.Supplementation of sorghum flour with moringa raised the protein content from between 29.10 to 38.80%.The carbohydrate content of the flour was 42.0-57.0%.The vitaminB2 content range between 1.50 and 2.50%,vitamin C range between 0.30 and 0.51%. Supplementation of sorghum with soybean and moringa increased the ca2+ from 2.50-12.70% and fe2+ from 0.39 to 1.60%.Supplementation of sorghum flour with moringa has well defined proximate and chemical analysis ,this can improve the nutritional status of malnourished infants
