Watch Out for Liquid Supplements

Many liquid supplements such as Ensure, Boost, Resource and Sustacal are being promoted as meal replacements.  These liquid supplements contain water, soy, milk protein, sugar, oil, and artificial vitamins and minerals.  They lack natural nutrients and fiber that we need on a daily basis.  They are not a substitute for real food.[1]

Avoid these liquid supplements as meal replacements.  If you have elderly parents or family members, advise them to eat more fruits and vegetables.  Use protein shakes or vegetable juices in place of these liquid supplements.
