Testing of a whey-soy beverage powder was carried out in Chile, Vietnam, India, Pakistan, Sierra Leone and the Dominican Republic to determine its probable acceptability for use as a supplementary food for pre-school children. Test results indicated that the beverage powder should be acceptable in all test countries except possible Sierra Leone. Moreover, since the tests were carried out in a variety of geographical areas and cultures and in several types of distribution systems, it may be concluded that there is a high probability that the beverage powder will be acceptable in pre-school child feeding programs in most parts of the developing world.
