  • Publication number: 20140314942
    Abstract: Disclosed are methods of transforming a meal to improve the suitability of the meal for an individual with specific dietary needs that may be due to a medical condition. The methods include assessing the meal relative to the individual's dietary needs and administering a composition to the meal that tailors the meal to the dietary needs of the individual. The composition comprises a nutrient for fortifying the meal and an anti-nutrient for reducing the absorption of undesirable components of the meal.

  • Patent number: 8541392
    Abstract: The present invention relates generally to a method of blunting the postprandial glycemic response in a human by feeding an induced viscosity fiber system. The invention also relates to an induced viscosity fiber system and the liquid products that incorporate the induced viscosity fiber system. Further, the invention relates to a method of incorporating soluble fiber into a liquid product without the typical negative organoleptic or physical stability issues. The invention also relates to a method of inducing the feeling of fullness and satiety by feeding the induced viscosity fiber system.

  • Patent number: 7422763
    Abstract: The present invention relates generally to a method of blunting the postprandial glycemic response to a meal by feeding an acid controlled induced viscosity fiber system. The first component of the induced viscosity fiber system is anionic soluble fiber. The second component of the induced viscosity fiber system is water-insoluble, acid-soluble multivalent cations. The fiber system will typically be incorporated into a meal replacement nutritional. The present invention also refers to a method of delivering soluble fiber to diabetics and to persons needing to lose weight. Additionally, the invention refers to a method of promoting the feeling of fullness and satiety by feeding a nutritional product containing the induced viscosity fiber system.

  • Patent number: 7183266
    Abstract: The present invention relates generally to a method of blunting the postprandial glycemic response to a meal by feeding a dual induced viscosity fiber system. The first component of the induced viscosity fiber system is soluble fiber. The second component of the induced viscosity fiber system is water-insoluble, acid-soluble multivalent cations. The third component of the induced viscosity fiber system in lightly hydrolyzed starch. The fiber system will typically be incorporated into a meal replacement nutritional. The present invention also refers to a method of delivering soluble fiber to diabetics and to persons needing to lose weight. Additionally, the invention refers to a method of promoting the feeling of fullness and satiety by feeding a nutritional product containing the induced viscosity fiber system.

  • Publication number: 20040197380
    Abstract: The two component carbohydrate mixture of this invention utilizes a source of fructose in combination with at least one readily digestible glucose polymer source. The addition of the fructose significantly decreases the glycemic response when compared to the digestible glucose polymer alone. Additional components may be added to the simple two component carbohydrate mixture to form a carbohydrate system suitable for incorporation into an enteral nutritional. This carbohydrate system optionally incorporates nonabsorbent carbohydrates, dietary fiber and indigestible oligosaccharides. The present invention is also directed to an enteral nutritional which incorporates the two component carbohydrate mixture and less than 37% of calories from fat. Additionally, the invention is directed to a method of delivering nutrients to a person with diabetes by feeding the enteral nutritional.
