Future proof! A new adapted meal with full taste for people with swallowing problems to enjoy again – Presented by Lieven De Maesschalck, Thomas More

Lieven De Maesschalck, Thomas More will speak at Healthy Nutrition Conference, on June 26, during AgriFood Innovation Event in Venlo, The Netherlands.

Malnutrition is a serious problem among people who need extra care. For people with chewing and/or swallowing problems even more. This lecture will inform you about 20 years of research for the development of an adapted meal: ‘Multi-start’.

This science-based meal is a perfect replacement of a bread meal for people with swallowing and / or chewing problems. The results of labtesting and clinical testing will be presented. This results clearly show that the participants eat their meals with more ease than their usual pureed food. They eat more and they eat it more smoothly, resulting in more energy and a positive increase in body weight.

Another benefit of this meals is that it creates more time for social interaction between the patient and caregiver. A constant link between the lab and the clinical testing proofs the ideal viscosity for the patient.

Even a match with IDDSI will be presented.

And at the end you can taste and give us feedback!


What drives you?

The patient! My drive is to give the patient the opportunity again to enjoy their meal.

Why should the delegate attend your presentation?

This lecture gives you an overview of 20 years research and make the unique link between lab, industry and clinical testing.
