  • Patent number: 9930908
    Abstract: Nutritional compositions having high amounts of protein and low ratios of omega-6:omega-3 fatty acids, and methods of making and using the nutritional compositions are provided. The nutritional compositions include an increased amount of protein, and a low ratio of omega-6:omega-3 fatty acids to provide a patient with adequate amounts of protein for the preservation of lean body mass, while reducing inflammation associated with administration of pro-inflammatory drug formulations such as propofol. The nutritional compositions also help to avoid potential complications associated with overfeeding of an enterally-fed patient being treated, or having been treated, with high fat medications such as propofol. Methods of making and using such nutritional compositions are also provided.
    Type: Grant
    Filed: January 26, 2012
    Date of Patent: April 3, 2018
    Assignee: Nestec S.A.

  • Patent number: 9486003
    Abstract: Nutritional compositions having reduced amounts of calories and high amounts of protein and methods of making and using the nutritional compositions are provided. The nutritional compositions may include a processed whole food component, a high amount of protein, and a reduced amount of calories in order to provide a patient with a pH-balanced formulation that includes the benefits of food bioactives beyond essential macro- and micronutrients without providing excessive energy. Methods of administering such nutritional compositions to patients in need of improved bone, muscle, neurological, immune, and/or overall health are also provided.

  • Publication number: 20140105875
    Abstract: Nutritional compositions including milk fat globule membrane components (“MFGM”) and at least one nutrient are provided. The milk-derived, bioactive lipids help to modulate conditions typically found in the elderly including, for example, low-grade inflammation, loss of lean body mass, skeletal muscle cell membrane instability, and joint inflammation. The nutrients may include, but are not limited to, whey protein micelles, citrulline, branched chain fatty acids, and a-hydroxycaproic acid (“?-HICA”). Methods for treating an individual having, or at risk of having, a medical condition are also provided.

  • Publication number: 20140056862
    Abstract: Nutritional compositions for maximizing muscle protein synthesis while minimizing the catabolism of muscle proteins and methods of using same are provided. In this manner, the nutritional compositions may provide for retention of lean body mass, which helps to avoid loss of independence and functionality, as well as to improve quality of life especially in the elderly at risk of sarcopenia and frailty. The nutritional compositions include ?-hydroxyisocaproic acid and ?-ketoglutarate. The composition may include other functional ingredients such as, but not limited to whey protein including whey protein micelles, prebiotic fibers, citrulline, eicosapentaenoic acid, L-carnitine, nucleotides, and amino acids. Methods of administering such nutritional products to individuals in need of same are also provided.
