After carrot and squash, now comes the sweet potato variant.
The Department of Science and Technology (DOST) launched on Friday its latest enhanced nutribun (e-nutribun) variant with the flavor and nourishing properties of sweet potato, locally known as “kamote.”
Like the earlier iterations, the pastry—whose origins date back to the Marcos regime—is an excellent source of natural fiber, energy, protein, iron, calcium, potassium and zinc, and has zero trans-fatty acids and cholesterol, according to the DOST’s Food and Nutrition Research Institute (FNRI).

Ang mga taong na-infect ng TB bacteria, may HIV man o wala, ay hinihikayat na uminom ng isoniazid sa loob ng anim (6) na buwan (6H). Sa oras na maging available na sa bansa ang ibang gamot tulad ng 3 months of weekly rifapentine plus isoniazid (3HP) o 3 months of daily isoniazid and rifampicin (3HR) ay maaari rin itong ibigay sa iyo ng iyong doktor. Ang mga gamot na ito ay nirerekomenda ng World Health Organization (WHO) at napatunayang ligtas at epektibo.
Kung may katanungan tungkol sa TPT, punta lamang sa pinakamalapit na health center o TB clinic sa inyong lugar. #TanggalBacteriaPower #KonsulTayo #HealthyPilipinas
