At Flavour Creations, we understand the difficulty in maintaining a healthy weight. Being well nourished and preventing weight loss is important, especially during times of illness, to decrease risk of infection, improve response to treatment and expedite recovery time. The key to staying well-nourished is to manage a diet high in protein and energy. A high protein, high energy diet helps to maximise the nutritional availability of foods, particularly when there are poor appetites, increased losses — such as diarrhoea or vomiting — and increased nutritional requirements.
Patients who may benefit from Flavour Creations’ Healthy Weight Maintenance range include:
- Decreased Appetite
- Post Operative
- Dysphagia (most products)
- Injury or Trauma
- Geriatric Nutrition
- Pressure Ulcers
To ensure consumption of an appropriate high protein, high energy diet, Flavour Creations has developed an extensive range of enriched drinks, desserts, cookies, fruit purees and supplement powders. Products are portioned-controlled, and energy-dense to help you get that extra energy into your diet.
Dysphagia patients should be assessed and monitored by a Speech Pathologist and Dietitian to ensure the suitability of Weight Maintenance products. It is recommended that all patients requiring Weight Maintenance products consult a Dietitian to receive individualise recommendations for the most appropriate Flavour Creations product.
