What is Nutricia Fortisip Compact?

What causes malnutrition?

Malnutrition happens when your body isn’t getting the right amount of nutrients that it needs to function properly. This can be a result of your diet but could also happen for medical or social reasons. Some of the most common causes of malnutrition include:

  • Health conditions that affect appetite and how well nutrients are absorbed in the gut, e.g. Crohn’s disease
  • Swallowing problems
  • Social isolation or finding it difficult to move or prepare food
  • Requiring extra energy, for example, in those with cystic fibrosis or those recovering from serious injuries or burns
  • Eating disorders e.g. anorexia, bulimia
  • Long-term conditions that cause lack of appetite, nausea, vomiting, or diarrhoea, e.g. cancer, liver disease

 

How will this product help me to manage malnutrition?

Nutricia Fortisip Compact helps to manage malnutrition by using a nutritionally complete formula that is easy to consume. Each 125ml bottle contains 300 calories and 12g of protein, which are vital nutrients your body needs to function. For more complete nutritional information, please see this leaflet.
