National Food is a nonprofit food bank serving persons with inherited metabolic diseases in Canada. It provides a variety of formulas and low protein foods from many suppliers in the U.S. and Europe. The products have been approved by dietitians and doctors and are distributed directly to hospitals and clinics, which serve as distribution agents for families.

As a result of many requests, National Food has set up the International Food Bank on the Internet as a distribution center for special formulas and foods. Products include those from Mead Johnson, SHS (Scientific Hospital Supply), Ross Products and Applied Nutrition (formerly FoodTek). For those who cannot locate some of the special foods in their country, check out their Web site: If you don't find what you are looking for, write to the Food Bank and they may be able to help. They welcome suggestions and comments. E-mail: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.


The MSUD Family Support Group is currently funding several research projects and we are proactively looking for researchers interested in developing new treatments or finding a cure for MSUD. Significant funding is necessary if we are to accomplish this goal.
