Medline announced the launch of its blenderized tube feeding meal line, Kitchen Blends. The new products complement Medline's robust portfolio of nutrient supplements and devices for tube feeders, and represents the first time the company enters the market as a blenderized meal manufacturer.
Increasing access to nutritionally balanced meals for tube feeding individuals
With more than 400,000 people relying on tube feeding due to 350-plus conditions like prematurity, genetic syndromes, and malformations of the gastrointestinal tract, it can be common to lose vital nutrition. Blenderizing their own meals is a common method for ensuring they receive proper nutrients each meal, but can be labor intensive. That's why Medline has created Kitchen Blends to help provide meals that can be enjoyed anywhere. Created by the clinicians at Medline, Kitchen Blends is available in three flavors, including Tender Chicken, Mixed Vegetables and Savory Salmon. Kitchen Blends meals are inspired by family favorites and provide a complete and balanced meal of protein, veggies, fruits and grains.
