Protein is an important nutrient at every stage of the cancer journey

Protein is an important nutrient at every stage of the cancer journey. In patients with cancer, the need for protein is higher than for healthy adults, and cancer patients often fail to consume sufficient protein2-4. Low protein intake can lead to low muscle mass, fatigue and even poorer survival in patients with cancer5-8. Therefore, ensuring sufficient protein with high protein oral nutritional supplements can improve clinical outcomes9-13

Taste can change outcomes shouldn’t

Up to 70% of cancer patients experience taste and smell alterations14. Sensory changes in cancer contribute to weight loss and malnutrition, increasing the risk of poor clinical outcomes15-22.
