  • Patent number: 10028519
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to nutritional compositions that include at least one ceramide. The nutritional compositions may further include galactose, sialic acid, or cholesterol. Ceramide and galactose may be provided by a plant-based source. The nutritional composition including ceramide and galactose from a plant base source may reduce the risk of cross-contaminating the nutritional composition with animal-based protein allergens. These plant-based ceramides and galactose may exhibit additive or synergistic beneficial health effects when consumed. The disclosure further relates to methods of reducing the incidence of skin rash caused by an allergy or promoting brain and eye health in a target subject by providing a nutritional composition comprising ceramides, galactose, sialic acid, and cholesterol to targeted subjects.

  • 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.
