Senior and clinical nutrition

Meet nutritional needs: Good nutrition is important at every stage of life, from infancy through late adulthood. The basics of a balanced diet remain the same but individual nutritional needs change as we grow older. No matter what age, it is never too late to start living a healthier life!

Whether aged 50 or 85, active or homebound, food choices will affect our overall health in the years ahead. The risk for certain diseases associated with aging such as heart disease, sarcopenia, osteoporosis and diabetes can be reduced with a lifestyle that includes healthy eating.

Good nutrition also helps in the treatment and recovery from illness. While healthy living can’t turn back the clock, it can help you feel good for longer. According to a recent consumer study (2015*) 74% of people over 65 are very /extremely concerned with “maintaining normal activities when I age”. At Roquette, we have identified a mainstreaming of clinical nutrition towards all Seniors Ageing Healthy in order to live longer in good health and to experience a satisfying retirement.

Older people should eat nutritious foods and keep physically active to help maintain muscle strength and a healthy weight. Roquette offers food formulators some valuable key ingredient solutions to contribute towards achieving a healthy lifestyle with targeted nutrition.

Aiming for “stay active” healthy lifestyle outcomes, food producers can rely on GLUCIDEX® and NUTRALYS®.

Clean, safe and nutritious plant proteins - NUTRALYS®

NUTRALYS® is available in a wide range that makes it possible to maximize eating pleasure in a wide variety of applications (RTD, bars etc.).

The NUTRALYS® range of pea proteins provides ageing people with the perfect protein to maintain strength and protect an active lifestyle.

In fact, NUTRALYS® is the first pea protein tested in clinical trials and possesses clinically-proven benefits related to muscle mass development, satiety and caloric intake.

It is rich in BCAA & arginine and is ideal for balancing cereal proteins.

It provides high digestibility, possessing an intermediate- fast digestion profile.

It is clean and safe, produced from the yellow pea, and is a non-GMO crop. In fact, being a legume, the pea harvests its own atmospheric nitrogen, thus eliminating the need for nitrogen fertilizers. Roquette has developed a highly purified, water-based processed pea protein isolate which is allergen-, lactose- and gluten-free. In addition, it is very low in isoflavone and anti-nutritional factors.
