I don't think you can buy it retail

From the company's website:

Quote:
I am a private individual – Can I order products from Nutriset ?
Our products are meant for people suffering from specific nutritional deficiencies or with a particular nutritional status (acute malnutrition). Most of our products must be used under medical supervision. They are sold to humanitarian organisations (Non Governmental Organisations, United Nations Agencies, Charities, Hospitals, Dispensaries, etc.) or to social players. (Public Health Ministries, associations, etc.) Our mandate is to accompany these active players in a common fight against malnutrition, which is rife in many Developing Countries.

Alton Brown on Good Eats featured homemade granola bars that were high in protein, amino acids, B vitamins and lots of other goodies. He goes through the recipe very fast, so you have to record it to get the recipe.

We made edible play dough from peanut butter, powdered milk and something else that was sweet, can't remember the recipe, but it was good. It could be baked into dishes-extra good for the BOB. Does anyone have that recipe?

I know the French durring the Napoleononic wars had a field ration that had a dried mush that was made out honey, molasses, pea, bean, and dried meat that was ground together and dried, I think they would add water than heat. I'll look into it and I'll post some links.

Durring the American Civil war The federal army attempted to provide a more balanced meal through a concoction of dehydrated potatoes, cabbage, turnips, carrots, parsnips, beets, tomatoes, onions, peas, beans, lentils, and celery called "desiccated vegetables." The soldiers had little luck trying to cook the newfangled product and called it "desecrated vegetables."

These?
Granola Bars:
8 ounces old-fashioned rolled oats, approximately 2 cups
1 1/2 ounces raw sunflower seeds, approximately 1/2 cup
3 ounces sliced almonds, approximately 1 cup
1 1/2 ounces wheat germ, approximately 1/2 cup
6 ounces honey, approximately 1/2 cup
1 3/4 ounces dark brown sugar, approximately 1/4 cup packed
1-ounce unsalted butter, plus extra for pan
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
6 1/2 ounces chopped dried fruit, any combination of apricots, cherries or blueberries
Directions
Butter a 9 by 9-inch glass baking dish and set aside. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Spread the oats, sunflower seeds, almonds, and wheat germ onto a half-sheet pan. Place in the oven and toast for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.

In the meantime, combine the honey, brown sugar, butter, extract and salt in a medium saucepan and place over medium heat. Cook until the brown sugar has completely dissolved.

Once the oat mixture is done, remove it from the oven and reduce the heat to 300 degrees F. Immediately add the oat mixture to the liquid mixture, add the dried fruit, and stir to combine. Turn mixture out into the prepared baking dish and press down, evenly distributing the mixture in the dish and place in the oven to bake for 25 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely. Cut into squares and store in an airtight container for up to a week.

Or

2 cups old-fashioned oatmeal
1 cup sliced almonds
1 cup shredded coconut, loosely packed
1/2 cup toasted wheat germ
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
2/3 cup honey
1/4 cup light brown sugar, lightly packed
1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 cup chopped pitted dates
1/2 cup chopped dried apricots
1/2 cup dried cranberries
Directions
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Butter an 8 by 12-inch baking dish and line it with parchment paper.

Toss the oatmeal, almonds, and coconut together on a sheet pan and bake for 10 to 12 minutes, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned. Transfer the mixture to a large mixing bowl and stir in the wheat germ.

Reduce the oven temperature to 300 degrees F.

Place the butter, honey, brown sugar, vanilla, and salt in a small saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat. Cook and stir for a minute, then pour over the toasted oatmeal mixture. Add the dates, apricots, and cranberries and stir well.

Pour the mixture into the prepared pan. Wet your fingers and lightly press the mixture evenly into the pan. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, until light golden brown. Cool for at least 2 to 3 hours before cutting into squares. Serve at room temperature.

Protein Bars
4 ounces soy protein powder, approximately 1 cup

2 1/4 ounces oat bran, approximately 1/2 cup

2 3/4 ounces whole-wheat flour, approximately 1/2 cup

3/4-ounce wheat germ, approximately 1/4 cup

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

3 ounces raisins, approximately 1/2 cup

2 1/2 ounces dried cherries, approximately 1/2 cup

3 ounces dried blueberries, approximately 1/2 cup

2 1/2 ounces dried apricots, approximately 1/2 cup

1 (12.3-ounce) package soft silken tofu

1/2 cup unfiltered apple juice

4 ounces dark brown sugar, approximately 1/2 cup packed

2 large whole eggs, beaten

2/3 cup natural peanut butter

Canola oil, for pan

Line the bottom of a 13 by 9-inch glass baking dish with parchment paper and lightly coat with canola oil. Set aside. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the protein powder, oat bran, wheat flour, wheat germ, and salt. Set aside.

Coarsely chop the raisins, dried cherries, blueberries and apricots and place in a small bowl and set aside.

In a third mixing bowl, whisk the tofu until smooth. Add the apple juice, brown sugar, eggs, and peanut butter, 1 at a time, and whisk to combine after each addition. Add this to the protein powder mixture and stir well to combine. Fold in the dried fruit. Spread evenly in the prepared baking dish and bake in the oven for 35 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 205 degrees F. Remove from the oven and cool completely before cutting into squares. Cut into squares and store in an airtight container for up to a week.

Well the shealf life is 2 years but I think if you try you can get a few more ears out of it. I would put it in small vac-sealed mylar bags or in mason jars. If its after a collapse I'd put in plastic bags so all they have to do nibble off a corner and squeeze it in their mouths. It could be a good thing to hand out to refugees you encounter after a complete collapse. This stuff has enough energy in to get them further down the road and prevent starvation.

An old thread but a good one. I think this stuff would be GREAT in a BOB!!!

I did some digging and I think I actually found the recipie too.

"Complete food for renourishing undernourished subjects

The following are poured into a kneading machine:

one 25 kg bag of skimmed milk powder,

one 25 kg bag of whey,

one 25 kg bag of maltodextrin,

then 12.5 kg of sucrose

and 1 kg of mineral and vitamin complement whose composition is given in Table 1 below.

The kneading hook is then switched on for 3 minutes at 55 rpm, followed by 3 minutes in the opposite direction and finally by 2 minutes at 85 rpm.

40 kg of peanut paste and 40 kg of fat, whose composition is described in Table 2, are then poured into the kneader. The ingredients are agitated for 4 minutes at 55 rpm and then for 2 minutes at 85 rpm."

You can also check out their patent on google, it's a bit easier to read.

When my kids were young, I would make them a recipe that their nursery school served sometimes.

You mix peanut butter, powdered milk, sugar and oats together then form them into balls. They love it and it it easy to make and nutritious.
