First produced in 1973 as a medical nutrition product, Ensure beverages are formulated to provide calories, protein and essential vitamins and minerals. Ensure is intended for supplemental use with or between meals and for interim sole-source nutrition. Ensure is not for parenteral use.
Ensure products provide a source of nutrition in connection with aging, recovery from illness, injury or surgery, and managing physical and mental conditions that cause an inability or refusal to eat, appetite loss, or overall weight loss. Ensure shakes are Kosher, Halal, gluten-free and suitable for lactose intolerance (not for people with galactosemia).
