The purpose of the project was to obtain and test a range powdered food products that are marketed for consumption by individuals that may be immunocompromised. Hence seventeen infant formula milks (0-6months), twelve over-the-counter, elderly, build-up products and nineteen sports powdered protein shakes were examined.
