NESTLÉ Docello® Protein Enriched Dessert Mixes have been specifically developed to meet menu standards for hospitals and aged care1, offering a versatile and easy to prepare, great-tasting addition to your menu range. But more importantly, they are packed with benefits to provide a vital source of protein and calcium in every serve when prepared as directed.
The importance of protein
Protein is a nutrient essential for building and repair of body tissues and the preservation of muscle mass. The ability to use protein from the food we eat is an important part of health at every age and becomes even more so in times of illness.
Hospital studies show that inadequate protein (and energy) intake can be found in as many as 50% of patients in Australian hospitals2. Inadequate protein intake can lead to reduced immune function, poorer healing and longer recuperation from illness.
Whilst all age groups need protein in varying amounts, metabolic changes with age mean the elderly need to eat more protein for the same benefit. Australian recommendations for protein intake in the over 70’s3 are around 25% more than those for younger adults, so a convenient, cost-effective protein enriched menu option can assist in contributing to additional patient and resident nutrition needs.
“Recommendations for protein intake in the over 70’s are around 25% more.”
Texture modified diets and thickened fluids are a dietary requirement for those diagnosed with dysphagia and has been found in as many as 68% of residents in aged care facilities4. The new range of NESTLÉ Docello® Protein Enriched Dessert Mixes meets Texture C requirements in being smooth and lump free, moist and cohesive enough to hold shape on a spoon and have the ability to be easily moulded, layered or piped when prepared as directed.
Great tasting range
NESTLÉ Docello® Protein Enriched Desserts deliver on taste as well as nutrition. Your patients and residents will love the variety, the flavour and texture of these desserts.
With menu variety and increased appetite appeal in mind, the tasty range of dessert flavours includes Protein Enriched Butterscotch, Protein Enriched Lemon and Protein Enriched Strawberry.
To achieve a winning flavour and nutrition combination, the product was developed in consultation with dietitians and leading speech pathologists. This also ensured texture and nutrition profiles suitable for hospitals and aged care.
For consistency across multiple sites and to overcome changing labour challenges, the NESTLÉ Docello® Protein Enriched Dessert range was specifically designed to be quick and easy to make and is conveniently gluten free for effortless menu integration.
All our dessert mixes also have the nutrition calculated per serve for measurable dietary planning and provide detail around portion size, to give you the confidence of knowing their nutritional content when developing nourishing recipes or including the desserts as part of a complete menu.
