Nestle Health Science introduces new low FODMAP nutritional drink

DBR Staff Writer Published 05 October 2016

Nestle Health Science has unveiled a low-FODMAP nutritional drink designed for consumers with digestive sensitivities.

The ProNourish drink makes it easier for people who follow a low FODMAP diet, whether at home or on-the-go.

People with gluten sensitivity or celiac disease and lactose intolerance can also use ProNourish drinks. Nestle said the drink is not suitable for individuals suffering from galactosemia.

FODMAP expands to Fermentable Oligosaccharides, Disaccharides, Monosaccharides And Polyols carbohydrates which have a poor absorption in the small intestine and can lead to several digestive disorders in some people.

Nestlé Health Science Consumer Care North America regional business head Barbara McCartney said: "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.

"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)."

The product is currently confined to the US only and is available in the nutritional drink section at various grocery stores and pharmacies. The company plans to being it online at the Nestlé Nutrition Store along with other e-tailers.

ProNourish comes in two flavors – French Vanilla and Strawberry Banana and is packaged in 8 fl oz (237mL) bottles.

An 8 fluid-oz ProNourish drink contains 170 calories and 6gm of sugar content. It features 25 essential vitamins and minerals, besides comprising 15gm of protein and 3gm of low FODMAP fiber.

The ProNourish drink is free from sugar alcohols, gluten, inulin, artificial colors and high fructose corn syrup.
