HINEX ST

HINEX ST is a complete balanced nutrition with high-quality triple blend protein designed to help improve and maintain the nutritional status of body and promote health. HINEX ST is an ideal blend of optimal amounts and proportion of nutrients and is enriched with 28 vitamins and minerals with immune supporting micronutrients. HINEX ST can be consumed either through the mouth or a tube as a sole source of nutrition (i.e., meal replacement) or as a dietary supplement (i.e., depending on the nutritional needs).

Features

  • Meal replacement
  • Triple protein powder
  • 28 vitamins and minerals
  • Healthy fat blend
  • Prebiotic fibre fructooligosaccharide (FOS)
  • Easier mixing and delicious vanilla flavour

1) Meal replacement

Consuming whole foods is the preferable way to obtain nutrients, but if patients (such as those with critical illness undergoing treatment or convalescence following major surgery) or older adults are having difficulty consuming adequate nutrients through meals, considering supplementation with powders may make sense. HINEX ST features a good balance of protein, fat and carbohydrate that can improve total energy intake. For e.g., according to a clinical nutrition practice guidelines, the estimated energy and protein requirements for intensive care and surgical patients is approximately (~) 25 to 30 kcal/kg/day and 1.2 to 1.5 g/kg/day ideal body weight, respectively. This means a patient with mild to moderate stress weighing 60 kg will require ~1500 to1800 kcal energy and ~72 to 90 gm protein per day which can be met with 8 servings (a tin) of HINEX ST that will provide ~1792 kcal of energy and ~76 gm of protein (after reconstitution). Each ml of HINEX ST provides 1 kcal energy, making caloric intake easy to calculate.

2) Triple protein powder

HINEX ST comprises a blend of three high-quality proteins – namely, casein, whey protein isolate and soy protein isolate, which includes essential and non-essential amino acids necessary for body’s growth and repair works and maintenance of good health. Collectively the three proteins have high biological value, protein efficiency ratio, net protein utilisation and true digestibility. A blend of these three proteins provide a consistent release of amino acids to the body and contribute additively to protein synthesis, which not only helps meet body’s protein requirements during times of catabolic stress but also helps increase diet-induced thermogenesis and satiety. There is good evidence that high-quality protein (especially whey isolate) improves lean body mass and muscle strength, and helps reduce (a) long-term medical complications, (b) the incidence of ulcers, (c) the risk of falls in frail and malnourished people, (d) the length of hospital stay and (e) hospital readmission rate.

3) 28 vitamins and minerals

HINEX ST contains 28 vital vitamins and minerals to help support a number of essential bodily functions including smooth functioning of the nervous and circulatory systems, improving energy production, immunity, and skin, muscle and bone health.

4) Healthy fat blend

HINEX ST contains healthy fat blend, i.e., monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFA), polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA), trans-fat free that supports heart health and helps manage metabolic syndrome by favourably influencing numerous metabolic and vascular parameters including blood lipids, blood pressure, coagulation, endothelial activation, inflammation, and thermogenic capacity.

5) Prebiotic fibre fructooligosaccharide

HINEX ST contains prebiotic fibre FOS. Prebiotics are digestion-resistant fibres (short-chain carbohydrates) that are selectively fermented by specific genera of colonic bacteria to produce metabolites, which helps modulate human gut microbiota. Evidence suggests prebiotic health benefits are attributed to immune modulation and bacterial metabolite production (short‐chain fatty acid production), which helps improve gut integrity and functions, and prevent or postpone diet-related diseases.

6) Easier mixing and delicious vanilla flavour

Lack of miscibility of powder supplement in water / milk leads to formation of lumps. HINEX ST powder blends well with water and milk and is good to taste (delicious vanilla flavour).

Instruction for use: For 1 serving

Step 1: To prepare 224 ml feed, take 185 ml of potable water in a glass.

Step 2: Add 4 level scoops (approx. 50 g) of HINEX ST. Use the scoop provided along with tin.

Step 3: Stir until completely dissolved.
