Meal Replacement Development (Macronutrients) for Enhanced Medical Nutrition Inc.
Enhanced Medical Nutrition Inc.
This project’s objective is to determine the macronutrient requirements for Enhanced Medical Nutrition Inc.’s bariatric meal replacement product and create a base that comprises these elements. Enhanced Medical Nutrition Inc. (EMN) is a life sciences organization engaged in developing, researching and producing evidence-based clinical nutrition. EMN’s direct focus is innovation in clinical nutrition, especially as it relates to surgery. EMN has come to FIRSt for support on this new venture, which is a powdered mixture designed to be a meal replacement for bariatric surgery patients. Requirements for these patients, and Canada Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) rules around meal replacements are complex. FIRSt can assist EMN in this project by conducting a literature review and using the findings to create a plan on how this product could be developed, then use that information to create the macronutrient profile of the product.
