Fortisip Compact Fibre

Nutricia introduced the first fibre containing compact 2.4kcal/ml Oral Nutritional Supplement because malnutrition and constipation are common in certain patient groups.

Low volume is key to compliance

  • Compliance with a high energy, low volume Oral Nutritional Supplement is greater than with a standard energy 200ml Oral Nutritional Supplement1,2
  • Demonstrated in both short term (91% v 77%)and longer term studies (86% v 67%)2
  • Energy and protein intake is significantly greater with a 125ml Oral Nutritional Supplement versus a 200ml Oral Nutritional Supplement1

Malnourished patients frequently have poor bowel health

Constipation is a major healthcare issue and high risk groups include older and less mobile patients and those with neurological disorders5

  • These patient groups are at greater risk of malnutrition6,7
  • Resulting in an inadequate intake of nutrients, including fibre

Fibre is important for a healthy diet

A variety of fibres are required for:

  • Maintaining normal gut structure and bowel function8
  • Reducing constipation9
  • Improving gut transit9

Fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS) & galacto-oligosaccharides (GOS) may have health benefits10

  • FOS/GOS produce short chain fatty acids (SCFAs), which have been shown to be of importance in maintaining normal bowel structure and function8
  • FOS/GOS promote the growth of beneficial bifidobacteria10,11

Fortisip Compact Fibre

Contains a unique fibre blend:

  • FOS, GOS and pectin fibres
  • Minimal impact on viscosity helping to provide a pleasant drink and encouraging compliance.
