Premix Solutions for Medical Nutrition

A micronutrient premix is a very important component of many health and nutritional products. It is usually a blend of vitamins and minerals in very specific proportions. In medical nutrition, our capabilities include the managing of highly complex mineral matrix including hydroscopic materials. We are also able to perfectly balance the mineral contributions alongside the sensorial requirements to deliver the health benefits to the patients as well as seniors.

Optimal Wound Repair

Medical Nutrition in APAC

Our Premix Solutions 

Create targeted medical nutrition solutions for improved wound healing

In 2021, 537 million adults were living with diabetes and this number, and consequently healthcare cost, are expected to increase.4 Unfortunately, the condition is often poorly controlled, which results in serious complications such as diabetic foot ulcers (DFU). These non- or poorly healing wounds below the ankle5 develop in up to 34% of diabetic patients.6

Malnutrition and specific micronutrient deficiencies are factors that may further impair wound healing in patients with diabetes.7 Wound healing is a complex process that requires an adequate balance of energy, carbohydrate, protein, fat, vitamins, and minerals.8 Oral nutrition supplements containing the right nutrients in the right amounts are a convenient format to help patients meet their nutritional requirements.

In this white paper, we explore the latest science-based recommendations for nutritional therapy in patients with or at risk of DFU, and how this is creating new opportunities for tailored medical nutrition innovation.


Expert views on the importance of nutrition and nutritional supplements in chronic wound care management 

Repair ready-to-mix instant beverage

Wounds that fail to progress through the natural healing process become chronic, debilitating, and extremely difficult to treat. Globally, the burden of chronic wounds (including diabetic foot ulcers) ranks in the top 10 causes of disability.9

Nutritional management to support wound repair therefore presents a significant and much-needed therapeutic opportunity.
