Nestlé Health Science Supports Digestive Health With ProNourish Launch in the US

Nestlé Health Science Supports Digestive Health With ProNourish Launch in the US

Nestlé Health Science has introduced ProNourish in the US, the first nationally distributed product of its kind designed and marketed specifically to be low in FODMAPs for people with digestive sensitivities. ProNourishTM drink is a 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, MonosaccharidesAnd 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, MD, spokesperson for ProNourish. “I recommend ProNourishTM drink as part of a low FODMAP diet so patients can enjoy a mini-meal or snack without worry.”

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

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.
