According to the World Health Organization, malnutrition refers to deficiencies, excesses or imbalances in a person’s intake of energy or nutrients.
The term malnutrition covers two groups of conditions. The one that Edesia focuses on is “undernutrition” – which includes stunting (low height for age), wasting (low weight for height), underweight (low weight for age) and micronutrient deficiencies (a lack of important vitamins and minerals).
Malnutrition affects people all over the world with close to three million children under the age of five dying from severe malnutrition every year.

We source over 50 million pounds of U.S. raw materials annually (which is approximately the weight of 170,454 baby elephants).
One in five deaths among children under age five are attributed to severe malnutrition.
