MINNEAPOLIS — Trovita Health Science, a Minnesota-based specialty health and nutrition company, announces the launch of a unique high-protein, high-calorie ready-to-drink nutritional shake marketed under the brand name ENU.
ENU is a naturally enhanced, complete nutritional shake that is remarkably flavorful, with 25g of protein per serving and 40% less sugar per ounce than several leading ready-to-drink high-calorie shakes. ENU is made with non-GMO (genetically modified organisms) and organic ingredients and has no added high fructose corn syrup or other refined sugars. Doctors and dietitians developed the product because of a sincere dissatisfaction with current options for supporting the nutritional needs of cancer patients. The superior quality ingredients in ENU, including whey protein isolates, quinoa, brown rice, high oleic sunflower oil and coconut oil, will make the product attractive to a broad spectrum of consumers, from those seeking to gain or maintain weight to endurance athletes who desire a product with more calorie density and higher levels of premium protein that promote muscle health.
“The goal of supplemental nutrition is to supply the building blocks the body needs to gain or maintain muscle and a healthy weight,” says Don Gabriel, MD, PhD, professor of hematology oncology and a stem cell transplant physician at University of North CarolinaMedical Center in Chapel Hill, N.C. “Having access to quality nutritional options plays such a crucial role in the optimal care of people with cancer that the National Cancer Institute’s website specifically calls for patients to consume nutrition drinks between meals. With ENU, we now have an option for patients that provides significantly more high-quality protein, and other quality calorie sources, and less reliance on sugar to deliver added calories.”
William Brown, CEO of Trovita Health Science, says, “We are pleased to make ENU available directly to consumers through participating physician practices and hospitals, as well as directly through our website at DrinkENU.com. There is a significant unmet need for a product that provides higher calories and higher protein content in a small serving size, while delivering on the customer’s expectation of great taste without added refined sugars. ENU provides a convenient and healthy option to support the nutritional needs of a broad range of consumers seeking to supplement their diets, especially people experiencing undesired weight loss who want to gain or maintain weight in a healthy way.”
