Laïta Nutrition boosts clinical nutrition portfolio with DADFMS formula to combat malnutrition
22 Nov 2022 --- Dairy cooperative Laïta Nutrition has launched DADFMS, a powder-based nutritional solution based on dairy proteins, which effectively meets the needs of patients suffering from or at risk of malnutrition (FSMPs).
Laïta Nutrition developed this turnkey powder because many pathologies hinder patient autonomy and are associated with swallowing disorders, often leading to long-term deterioration of nutritional status.
This oral nutritional supplement is a rich source of protein and provides fat and carbohydrates in large quantities. It gives the patient the 28 micronutrients needed in cases of malnutrition, including vitamin D and calcium for bone strength, vitamin B for energy metabolism, vitamin A to reduce fatigue and vitamins C and E to protect the body against oxidation.
Packing power with protein
The ingredients used in DADFMS are based on dairy proteins easily absorbed by the body and omega 3 and 6 fatty acids that promote good heart health. It is designed to be consumed as a supplement alongside a balanced diet.
DADFMS has an adapted nutritional composition with 4.8 g of protein, 4 g of fat and 18.6 g of carbohydrates per 100 g. In addition, it does not need to be stored in a cool place because it has a long shelf life.
It has a neutral taste and also comes in a vanilla variety. The product has a homogeneous and fluid texture which can be easily integrated into an enriched diet or as an oral nutritional supplement. The neutral flavor allows the solution to be incorporated into all types of preparations, savory and sweet and can be adapted to everyone’s preferences.
To cater to all patients, Laïta Nutrition has developed a lactose-free version.
Malnutrition warnings off the chart
Earlier this year, UNICEF warned of an imminent “explosion of deaths” in the Horn of Africa, with an estimated eight million children under five at risk of death from severe wasting in 15 countries.
In addition, malnutrition and vitamin deficiencies are a huge challenge for Southeast Asian children as well, according to a FrieslandCampina study. The findings call for a systematic approach to tackling the “triple burden” of malnutrition. The research was carried out in Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand and Vietnam between 2019 to 2021 and included almost 14,000 children aged six months to 12 years.
