Nestlé Health Science S.A. Key Developments

Nestlé Health Science Introduces Innovative BOOST® Nutritional Drinks in Compact Sizes

Nestlé Health Science has announced the launch of the next generation of nutrition drinks -- 4 fluid (fl) ounce (oz) size BOOST Calorie Smart® 100 Calories Balanced Nutritional Drink and BOOST® Compact Complete Nutritional Drink. Research shows that more than 40% of adults are not meeting the recommended daily intake of many vitamins and minerals through diet alone. Key shortfall nutrients for adults 50 years and older include calcium, magnesium, potassium, choline and vitamins A, D and E. Consuming a nutritional drink, such as the new BOOST® drinks, can help older adults get the nutrition they need every day. For some, getting extra nutrition without consuming extra calories can be a challenge. BOOST Calorie Smart® 100 Calories Drink is a great-tasting solution. This unique 100 calorie 4 fl oz snack size drink contains 10 grams of high-quality protein to help maintain muscle, 25 vitamins and minerals to help meet daily nutritional needs, calcium to support bone health and only 2 grams of sugar. It comes in Rich Chocolate and Very Vanilla flavors for a delicious and nutritious snack that can fit into a busy life. New BOOST® Compact Drink is a ground-breaking solution that provides complete nutrition in half the volume of a full size nutritional drink (4 fl oz vs. 8 fl oz in BOOST® Original Drink). Distinct from any product currently on the market, each 4 fl oz bottle is packed with 240 calories, 10 grams of high-quality protein to help maintain muscle and 26 vitamins and minerals to help meet daily nutritional needs. Available in Rich Chocolate and Very Vanilla flavors, it also contains both calcium and vitamin D to support bone health. Nutrient-dense, smaller sized nutritional drinks can help people in need of extra nutrition get the nutrition they need. Studies have shown that older adults who consume a 4 fl oz nutrient-dense nutritional supplement rather than a standard-size nutritional supplement increase their calorie and protein intake significantly.

Nestlé Health Science S.A. Introduces New Cow Milk Protein Allergy Assessment Tool

Nestlé Health Science S.A. has introduced an assessment tool to help healthcare professionals identify cases of cow's milk protein allergy, or CMPA, in infants. Some infants develop an allergy to cow's milk when their immune system mistakenly sees the milk protein as something the body should fight off. CMPA can cause an infant to be fussy and irritable due to an upset stomach and other symptoms. CMPA is usually difficult to diagnose because many of its symptoms are non-specific, which means its symptoms are common with other medical conditions seen in infants and children. The new Cow's Milk-related Symptom Score Tool (CoMiSS), developed by a panel of leading international experts and funded by an unrestricted grant by Nestle Health Science, is designed to help healthcare professionals identify the allergy at an earlier stage.
