Why Fortified Purees?
We serve over 1.5 million meals a year and we understand how challenging it can be to get the right nutrition and right texture for those that require pureed food, particularly the elderly.
As we age our bodies process protein less efficiently and need more of it to maintain muscle mass and strength, bone health and other essential physiological functions. Even healthy seniors need more protein than when they were younger to help preserve muscle mass. We boost the protein in all our products to support healthy ageing.
Extra protein, energy & fibre
Our team of in-house dietitians, consultant speech language therapist and registered nutritionist work alongside our chefs to ensure that our delicious meals also meet the nutritional standards for protein, energy and fibre recommended by the European Society for Clinical Nutrition and Metabolism.
Our in-house dietitians regularly contribute to New Zealand and Australian Dietitian Groups and lead the Special Interest in Nutrition and Gerontology Group.
Consistent, Safe Texture
Our Pure Foods are pureed using unique technology that ensures our food is the exact right texture every time. IDDSI compliant and Speech Language Therapist approved, our foods are safe for people with dysphagia and other eating difficulties.
Fresh, Local Produce
Our recipes, created by an experienced Chef, have beautiful flavours, delicious aromas and vibrant colours. We source our fresh foods locally – beef from Taupo, broccoli from Hawkes Bay, pumpkin from Gisborne.
We then blend the fresh food with natural, plant-based nutrition, to provide extra bioavailable nutrition. The result is a variety of delicious foods that are full of flavour, packed with nutrition and easy to swallow.
Our customers have not only experienced improved health but also improved quality of life – they deserve the very best & it starts with food!
