What our customers have to say.
I am the Clinical RD for a ltc/rehab facility. We have been using Medtrition products for over 3 years. Our residents have shown significant progress in protein malnutrition and wound healing from using ProSource NoCarb, ArgiMent AT, ProSource ZAC, ProSource TF, Gelatein 20 and Gelatein Plus. The Nursing Staff has been able to achieve excellent outcomes with Stage II, III and IV wounds. They are all more well-accepted by the residents and easier to administer than the previous supplements and modalities. With the fast pace of admissions, discharges, rehab and surgical needs, we have determined that Medtrition has come to answer all our needs for supplementation. Flexibility, dosages, ease of administration, shelf stability, taste acceptance, nutritional content and educational support are typical descriptions I receive from staff regarding Medtrition’s products and their Sales Representative and Support Staff.
I’m so glad for your service; the Gelatein product has been a god-send for my husband. We discovered it after his first surgery when he was on clear liquids. He loves the taste (he’s always been fond of cherry jello anyway) and knowing we are getting all that protein is so wonderful. I really think it helped him get on solid foods faster! After the hospitalization he wanted more so that’s when I found you. We have to travel to get radiation therapy 5 days a week and your Gelatein is easy to take along for a healthy snack before treatment. I’ve order 2 cases this time; one cherry, one pineapple. I’m sure we will get around to other flavors as well later on. Many thanks again!
I’ll admit I was skeptical at first but after tasting Gelatein I was sold. With most protein supplements you expect an aftertaste but not with Gelatein! We started introducing high calorie Gelatein Plus flavors to our patients and residents and then quickly brought in sugar free Gelatein 20 as well. They really help fight flavor fatigue and give patients a refreshing new choice! Our physicians and nurse practitioners absolutely love them too!
I want to say how impressed I am with the Prosource Gelatein Plus supplement – I have prescribed it for one of my trauma patients who dislikes all other supplements and was rapidly losing weight and muscle mass. She really likes the taste of Prosource Jelly, and after her first week of taking it, she has finally begun to gain weight.
Another truly innovative product! Most of my patients will eat dessert before they will their meal, and do not eat much meat. This product is awesome for people with swallowing problems as well. One patient commented “It goes down much easier” and his sister even wanted to get ordering information for the product because it was so successful! Many patients whom are not eating we are finding they will eating Gelatein Plus because it looks like a regular dessert and don’t mind the flavor as well.
We’re a 130 unit Rehab Hospital and we are using Gelatein 20. We use the Gelatein 20 with a large number of our rehab patients because it helps them heal faster and recover more quickly. Patients are not allowed to stay with us for as long as we would like, so we do everything we can to strengthen them while they are here. A high Protein diet is a very important step in that process. We include Gelatein 20 in both lunch and dinner. We see very positive results in the healing of our patients. Thanks for this great item.
We successfully use Gelatein for residents. These are accepted well for flavor and consumed well. The product gives another flavor variety for thickened liquids. It was a nice change for the dysphagia residents to finally get jello. Something our speech department would never give them since they could aspirate. We also use the Flavored Liquid ProSource, it has been great providing 15 grams of protein in a low volume 1oz. serving. Nursing likes the ease of dosing.
I have had great acceptance and results with the Gelatein products. All residents truly enjoy the orange, fruit punch and lime flavors. They have stated of not feeling full as opposed to drinking a supplement which is extremely filling. Taste wise Gelatein products far exceed the very sweet taste of liquid supplements. Our dietician loves using Gelatein 20 and Plus for weight loss and wounds. Because of the higher calories, we only need to give them once a day as opposed to up to 4 times a day for liquid supplements. This saves nursing time as well.
This product is surprisingly delicious and is generally well accepted by the residents here. I like it for its versatility – I can give it to people on thickened liquids and to people who don’t like the ‘milky” products.
I am a Dietitian for a regional hospital in Kent County, RI. We added Gelatein Plus about 8 months ago and our Dietary Staff uses it for a number of patients that need increased protein and increased caloric intake. The staff dietitians are all very happy with the results that they achieve by using Gelatein Plus and we recommend it to others as well.
