Consuming whole foods is the preferable way to obtain nutrients, but if patients or older adults are having difficulty consuming adequate nutrients through meals, considering supplementation with powders may make sense. Choosing a healthy and balanced meal replacement can be an acceptable substitution.
Hinex ST is a perfect balance of protein, fat and carbohydrate and can improve your total energy intake. An ICU patient weighing approximately 60 kg needs minimum 72 g of protein and 1500 kcal of energy each day during recovery. One tin of Hinex ST provides 76 g of protein and 1792 kcal of energy. Each ml of Hinex ST provides 1 kcal energy, making caloric intake easy to calculate.
Hinex ST is a blend of three types of proteins, Casein (powdered main milk protein), Whey protein isolate (powdered food ingredient, formed during the process of cheese manufacturing) and Soy isolate (powdered food ingredient separated from soybean). Both casein and soy isolate have slower utilization rates compared to whey protein isolate, so a blend of three provides consistent release of proteins to the body. A blend of proteins also contributes additively to muscle protein synthesis.
Muscles are the major reservoirs of proteins in the body which gradually decrease in both mass and strength as one ages. After hospitalization and while suffering from a particular disease, body undergoes tremendous stress which alters the metabolism of proteins and depletes proteins from the body. Hence, in hospitalized individuals, in patients and in elderly, the protein requirements increase for which additional protein intake should be met through protein supplements.
Micronutrients like vitamins and minerals help to boost energy production and increase energy levels. They also support bone health and the body’s ability to fight infections. Providing multiple micronutrients also has a positive effect on fatigue during the recovery period.
Hinex ST provides a blend of 28 essential vitamins and minerals which can play a role in recovery.
Lack of miscibility of powder supplement inwater/ milk lead to lump formation.HINEX ST powder blends well with liquidsalong with a good flavour for betteracceptability by patients.
Fibre is an important component of a normal diet. Inclusion of fibre in your nutrition plan may improve your recoveryoutcomes.
Hinex ST contains fibre in the form of fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS) which helps to maintain gut health and protects the integrity of gut.

Zinc is an essential trace element. It is used for boosting immune system, treating common cold, recurrent ear infections, respiratory tract infections etc. It promotes better wound healing and is also used to treat pressure ulcers.
Vitamin D & Calcium
They plays very important roles in the body for normal functioning of bones, nerves, cells and muscles. Vitamin D is responsible for calcium absorption and bone mineralization. Vitamin D has other roles in diabetes, cancer, immunity, heart, kidneys, weight loss and cognitive function
Vitamin A helps to maintain healthy teeth, soft tissues, mucus membranes and skin. It is an important vitamin for good vision, especially in low light. It is also an antioxidant and protects cell damage and boost immunity.
Vitamin B1 & B6
Vitamin B1 & B6 are water soluble vitamins. They are essential for normal functioning of the body. They are also associated with brain structure, function and cognition in healthy older adults. They essentially work as co-factors for enzymes.
It is an important for growth, development and repair of all body tissues. It is an important vitamin promoting wound healing. It is involved in the formation of collagen, absorption of iron, better immune system, and maintenance of cartilage, bones and teeth.
Choline serves various functions in the body including cell structure, cell messaging, fat transport and metabolism, DNA synthesis. It plays an important role for a healthy nervous system and is required to make acetyl choline.
To prepare 224 ml feed. Take 185 ml of potable water in a glass
Add 4 level scoops (Approx. 50 g) of Hinex ST. Use provided scoop along with tin
Stir until dissolved completely
Blenderized formulas are safe and delivers adequate nutrition.
Blenderized formula is not safe as assumed and the process of making it in the kitchen, transporting it to the wards and then ultimately giving it to the patients gives adequate opportunity for bacterial contamination. Researches proved that the bacterial count 4 hours after preparation has adequate bacterial contamination, Not suitable to be given to patients.
Patients take 100% of food given in hospitals without wastage.
Clinical studies found that 55% of hospitalised patients do not take their entire meal. Insufficient dietary intake can further lead to deteriorate of nutritional status and delayed recovery. Formulae feeds are easy to prepare and consume, It provides sufficient protein and calories and promotes recovery.
Kitchen feed contains all essential and non - essential micronutrients.
While it is perceived that kitchen feeds provides all you require during your hospital stay, researches have proven that they are essentially deficit in micronutrients.
Formulae feeds are nothing but milk solids.
Formulae feed are scientifically designed to meet the requirements of hospitalised patients. They provide the essential nutrients for convalescence and wound healing.o9
