Drink Spotlight: Nestlé Health Science Unveils ProNourish™ Low FODMAP Nutritional Drink

 

 

Formulated with the advice of healthcare professionals to be compliant with a Low FODMAP Diet for people with digestive sensitivities

 

FLORHAM PARK, N.J., Oct. 4, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Nestlé Health Science introduces ProNourish™ (www.ProNourish.com), the first nationally distributed product of its kind designed and marketed specifically to be low in FODMAPs for people with digestive sensitivities. ProNourish™ drink is a delicious nutritional drink that helps make following a low FODMAP diet easier, whether at home or on-the-go.

FODMAP is an acronym for Fermentable Oligosaccharides, Disaccharides, Monosaccharides And Polyols, which classifies specific types of short-chain carbohydrates that can be poorly absorbed in the small intestine, resulting in severe abdominal pain, bloating, constipation and/or diarrhea and excess gas in some people.  Research shows that a diet low in FODMAPs can significantly reduce symptoms of digestive discomfort for some people living with digestive sensitivities. The efficacy of the low FODMAP diet is supported by more than 30 clinical studies.1,2

 

"Meal and snack time can be filled with anxiety for many patients because they experience gastrointestinal symptoms after eating certain foods, such as those that are high in FODMAPs," explained Travis Stork, M.D., spokesperson for ProNourish™. "I recommend ProNourish™ drink as part of a Low FODMAP diet so patients can enjoy a mini-meal or snack without worry."

ProNourish™ drink features the TruComfort™ Digestive Care Blend with ingredients carefully selected to be low in FODMAPs, including 3g of low FODMAP fiber to support digestive health.

 

ProNourish™ drinks are also suitable for people with gluten sensitivity or celiac disease as well as lactose intolerance; but are not suitable for individuals with galactosemia.

"Often times, people with digestive sensitivities avoid all foods and food categories that give them discomfort, or even fear of discomfort, which can unintentionally impact their nutritional intake," explains Barbara McCartney, Regional Business Head for Nestlé Health Science Consumer Care in North America. "With our new ProNourish™ Low FODMAP nutritional drink, we are providing a trusted source of nutrition that can be enjoyed, knowing that it has been tested and certified to be low in FODMAPs by Monash University (Australia)."

 

ProNourish™ 8 fluid-ounce drinks have:

•Only 170 calories and 6 grams of sugars
•15 grams of high-quality protein
•3 grams of low FODMAP fiber
•25 essential vitamins and minerals
•NO Sugar alcohols
•NO Fructooligosaccharides
•NO Inulin
•NO High fructose corn syrup
•NO Gluten
•Monash University Low FODMAP Certified

 

ProNourish™ drinks can be found in the nutritional drink section (within diet management aisle) at grocery stores or pharmacies nationwide. It can also be purchased online at the Nestle Nutrition Store and other e-tailers.

This new product introduction follows the launch of www.LowFODMAPcentral.com, a comprehensive online resource developed by Nestlé Health Science to support both the consumer seeking more information about FODMAPs and the healthcare professional looking to build knowledge and practice tools.

Daily Insight: FODMAP – The Next Big Trend?

 

 

Before referring to the meaning of the acronym that is ‘FODMAPs’, one should understand what exactly are FODMAPs and how their role in the human body plays an important part throughout life. FODMAPs are simply a variety of sugar alcohols and carbs that are found in everyday food, as well as processed as additives. While the carbs are in fact short chain carbohydrates, sugar alcohol is a form of alcohol that requires sugar as a key for preparation, but how important are these facts in correlation to FODMAPs?

 
The process of FODMAPs and its effects
The acronym FODMAPs stands for a list of Fermentable processes that are Oligosaccharides, Disaccharides, Monosaccharides, And Polyols, and is suggestive of the scientifically-proven low FODMAP diet used for patients of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and similar symptoms.
In the case of IBS, FODMAPs are consumed rather poorly by the small intestine, and in turn pass to the large intestine by causing two collateral effects: production of gas due to FODMAPs fermentation by bacteria, and the ‘osmotic’ effect of FODMAPs that attract water into the large intestine and deregulate bowel movement. It is because of these two events that symptoms of irritable bowel movement are triggered and may include pain and bloating in the abdomen, and either constipation or diarrhea.

 
Applying the low FODMAP Diet
The FODMAPs are found in everyday foods and liquids such as types of wheat, onions, garlic, milk, ice-cream, honey, watermelons, apples, pears, mangos, nectarines, plums, etc. With that in mind, it is easy to hypothesize that a large percentage of people consume such foods at uncontrolled levels that in turn cause bowel irritations.
It is exactly the idea of controlling your FODMAP intake that helps regulate biological levels in the body that prevent bowel irritations. By eating foods and liquids that are compatible with the FODMAP list, or FODMAP-friendly, results in a dietary treatment for victims of IBS or similar bowel irritation symptoms. Such foods include carrots, corn, cucumber, grapes, blueberries, bananas, oranges, most meats, seafood, and tens more.
