We have updated the nutritional profiles of our Café Puree line of meats, vegetables, fruits, pastas and breakfast items as well as the Café Parfait desserts to include the complete ‘44 Nutrients’ that comprise both macro and micronutrients. Macro nutrients are those nutrients that are needed in large amounts and include carbohydrate, protein and fat. Micronutrients include vitamins, minerals, omega fats and other nutrients such as choline, caffeine and alcohol. These new nutritional profiles will make it easier for facilities to determine if they are meeting the Dietary Reference Intakes (DRI’s) through their dysphagia menu.
DRI’s are developed and published by the Institute of Medicine (IOM) and represent the most current scientific knowledge on nutrient needs of healthy populations.
To view the complete nutritional file, simply click on the Nutritional Files of the products you want in the Dysphagia category and then click on the appropriate PDF file located on the right side of the page.
