It all started with a map. Can you imagine having to map every bathroom between your home and your office or your office and your child’s school? This is exactly what one mom we met had to do, given the unpredictability of her digestive issues. Hearing her story and so many others about the disruption digestive issues were causing in the lives of our friends compelled us to act.
The issue was clear: 80 million people—one third of the U.S. adult population—is living with digestive discomfort. As a small team within a big company, we had the opportunity to use Nestlé Health Science’s resources to deliver on the mission of enhancing people’s lives through nutritional solutions to help those with digestive sensitivities.
Emerging clinical evidence provided a starting point: Specific types of carbohydrates called FODMAPs can have a direct link with some people’s gastrointestinal symptoms. We focused on creating a nutritional option that avoided FODMAPs AND delivered on taste.
ProNourish™ Drink was carefully formulated based on feedback from Monash University—the creators of the Low FODMAP diet—and an advisory board of expert GI dietitians, physicians and scientists. The end result was a delicious, complete nutritional drink that fully complies with the Low FODMAP diet.
This is just the beginning. Rick, Barb and the rest of the team are deeply committed to increasing support for the millions impacted by digestive troubles. And they hope that more and more people will discover how ProNourish™ products can help provide peace of mind and support finding digestive balance.
