SPC ProVital Fibre Right supports patients with dietary deficiencies
Over the next several decades, population ageing is projected to have major implications for Australia, including health and wellbeing. The need for products and services that promote healthy living and positive ageing is becoming increasingly important. Australian food manufacturer SPC Ardmona, manufacturer of SPC ProVital, is committed to providing delicious, nutritious and expertly formulated products designed to address specific health requirements and support Australia’s ageing population.
The unfortunate reality is that many older Australians often don’t get enough fibre in their diet irrespective of whether they live at home, are a resident of an aged-care facility, or are a patient in a hospital environment.
“Individuals need 25–30 g of fibre in their diet a day, and its concerning to see just how many people are not getting their recommended daily dose of fibre,” said Denise Burbidge, Accredited Practising Dietitian & Nutritionist, The Food Clinic.
“I see so many people who are struggling to eat their core foods — like fruits, vegetables and wholegrains. If people aren’t eating the right fibre-rich foods, their body will experience a range of health complications.”
The SPC ProVital Fibre Right range offers a way for patients to get a sufficient amount of nutrients into their diet without compromising on taste and flavour. SPC ProVital Fibre Right is a delicious and nutritious meal accompaniment or snack and it is available in Apple and Prune flavour.
SPC ProVital Fibre Right is specifically formulated to provide a good source of fibre, with at least 5 g in each serve. Fibre Right is also suitable for Texture C diets, and the easy-open portion controlled packaging also assists those with mobility issues.
Dijana Dragicevich, Senior Speech Pathologist at the Royal North Shore Hospital, said, “It’s so important that modifications to textures and flavours are made to products, especially for those with eating, speaking and mobility issues like dysphagia.”
SPC believes that positive nutritional food choices support the health and longevity of patients and it allows them to receive the most out of their meals. As the next evolution of the easy-open portion control fruit range, SPC ProVital Fibre Right makes it easy and delicious for patients to meet their daily fibre intake. SPC ProVital is determined to give Australia’s ageing population choice, taste and nutrition every day, every meal occasion.
