Frequently Asked Questions
SRFS is a food supplement which is not intended to replace other food but should be taken to supplement (add to) everything else you are eating, especially because many times what you are eating is not completely balanced (meaning that you are not getting all of the essential macro and micro nutrients that your body needs). This could be because of a number of reasons, including:
- You are sick and don't have an appetite to eat food
- You have sores in your mouth making eating difficult
- You cannot afford all the food that you need
SRFS contains a high amount of Fat (from the nuts and from the Soya Oil). Fats are high in energy and therefore a high fat diet will increase one's energy. Be careful though ... there are good Fats (unsaturated fats) and bad fats (saturated fats). SRFS contains the good Fats (unsaturated). This means that you can get the benefit of the extra energy and Weight, in a healthier way.
Healthy Muscle needs the body to absorb enough Protein. SRFS contains high amounts of Protein because it contains Soya. Soya is known around the world as a good source of Protein. The protein in SRFS helps build muscle or helps in cases where muscles have wasted due to illness.
SRFS is a food... not a medication. It is not intended to replace your medication, but it is well researched that proper nutrition (Eating balanced meals and getting the right amount of Carbohydrates, Fats, Protein and Vitamins and Minerals), can boost the immune system and therefore helps in fighting sickness and helps the medication to work better. Medication on an empty stomach or in a body that is not getting proper nutrition can be harmful, so taking a food supplement whilst on medication gives your medication a better chance of being successful.
You can eat it from the bottle. (SRFS does not need to be diluted or mixed with anything else. It is fully prepared and can be eaten immediately).
Yes, depending on your condition. (People who have high cholesterol levels in their blood should follow an eating plan that is low in fat, especially low in saturated fat. Whether or not they could use SRFS will depend on the fat content of their diet in total, and the health problem that makes them want to use it).

Yes, it can. (The only time that it may not be consumed is if the person is obese or overweight.)
It is not advised because of their susceptibility to allergies. Health professionals expressed concern about the window period (0-9 months) for allergies in children, and the fact that SRFS is peanut-based. Although in the past dieticians have assessed cases where they found that a child's state of malnourishment outweighed the allergy risk and have used the product.
