Healthcare Professionals

Nourishment when it matters most

Dedicated to detail

Our specialist focus enables us to assist healthcare professionals in addressing the increasingly and evolving challenges of today – and tomorrow.

At ProPortion Foods we understand the need for increased diligence, especially given the vulnerable nature of much of the population we serve.

Here are a few of the ways we’re assisting professionals like you right now.

Protein for sarcopenia and malnutrition

Significant age-related loss of muscle mass, sarcopenia, may afflict up to half of all long-term care residents and more than a third of older adults in hospital. Similarly, one in three hospitalised older adults and up to two thirds of aged care residents may be malnourished.

While the issues of sarcopenia and malnutrition are complex and need a multi-pronged approach, a simple start is to prioritise protein intake. Research suggests that older adults at risk should consume at least 1.2g of protein per kg of their bodyweight each day. Our SmartServeTM range is designed with this in mind, offering a protein boost to those who need it most.

Protein for sarcopenia and malnutrition
Dysphagia

Dysphagia

Dysphagia refers to any failure in the act of swallowing. It can range from mild to severe and may lead to conditions such as unintentional weight loss, malnutrition and dehydration. More seriously, it may result in life-threatening episodes involving choking, suffocation or lung infections.

To avoid such complications, it is important that food texture is optimised to meet an individual’s specific needs. IDDSI sets out a framework for this. Our Smartserve™ range has been developed in full compliance with IDDSI. It provides additional protein to help counter the conditions that often arise from dysphagia.

Allergen management

We recognise the number of people with food allergies is rising dramatically. Data suggests that peanut allergies alone have tripled over the past twenty years. Allergic reactions can range from moderate to potentially life-threatening and this means accurate and full food allergen declarations are vital.

We take great care to not only identify allergens present in the foods we supply, but also the potential for allergen cross-contamination within our manufacturing facilities, or those of our ingredient suppliers.

Allergen management

Research & development

We believe in a collaborative approach to product development. By engaging with healthcare professionals, academic researchers and food scientists, we bring together the diverse skillsets required to create the very best foods for recovery and wellbeing.
