Some people can get along with their creamy oral nutritional supplements (ONS).
Others find it hard to take them as an alternative to conventional food due to lactose, gluten, and fibre issues.
Research has shown that using ONS to treat patients with disease-related malnutrition provides advantages for patients and healthcare providers alike.
Malnutrition accounts for roughly 4.5% of the illness among Singaporeans under the age of 20. Research conducted by the National University of Singapore in 2017 found that 2.8% of Singaporeans aged 55 and older were undernourished.
But, with such a challenge even in taking nutritional drinks, is there anything left for healthcare providers?
Definitely! This is thanks to Nestle Resource Fruit.
A Bottle of Refreshing Oral Nutritional Supplement
Approximately 10% of the world’s soft drink consumption was made up of fruit juices and beverages in 2015.
That statistic alone has reached 105 billion liters in 2020.
Considering that number, making a refreshing fruit-based ONS can help patients with special needs in their diet. In fact, this is what Nestle Resource fruit is all about!
