Sustein Complete is a complete and balance nutrition formula. It contains enough nutrients which include carbohydrate, protein, fat, vitamins, minerals and fiber to support everyday life activities. Sustein complete was designed to fulfil this requirement as complete and balance nutrition. It also contains essential Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids along with prebiotic and fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS) for digestive health.
The main source of protein in this product comes from whey protein concentrate, sodium caseinate and soy protein. Generally, protein in food may come from animal or plant source. In general, the popular animal source protein used in the food industry is whey protein as it has a range of essential amino acids that can be absorbed quickly in human body. Numerous studies have also shown that people taking whey protein increase in strength, muscle weight and able to lose significant amounts of body fat in long term.
Over the years, plant proteins have been an on-going trends and food manufacturers have been applying plant protein combined with whey protein in food to create a healthy and nutritious high protein formula. Combination of whey protein and soy protein may enhance and sustain the protein synthesis.
Soy protein is one of the well-known plant proteins in the food industry. It is made from dehulled and defatted soybean and then processed to contains 90 percent protein and very low percentage of carbohydrate and fat. There are many types of commercialized soy protein such as soy protein isolate, soy protein concentrates and soy flour. The benefit of soy protein is that it is able to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease.
This is due to its low amount of saturated fat content
Therefore, soy protein may also lower the low-density lipoprotein (LDL) and increase high density lipoprotein (HDL) which eventually reduce blood cholesterol level. Other benefit when consuming food product containing soy protein is that it can strengthen bones and reduce the risk of diabetes mellitus. These are additional benefits come from protein that we included in our formula.
The analytical method generally recognized by the Food and Agriculture Organization (1990), as well as the Food Drug Administration when judging the quality of protein is the protein digestibility-corrected amino acid score (PDCAAS), as it is viewed as accurately measuring the correct relative nutritional value of animal and vegetable sources of protein in the diet. Any protein that has 1.0 PDCAAS is considered to indicate that the protein contains essential amino acids that reach the human requirements and digestibility.
Other than protein, fat and carbohydrate is also important to be in the right proportion in nutrition drink. According to Malaysia Ministry of Health (MOH), the percentage of fat and carbohydrate ranges from 20 to 35 percent of total energy and from 45 to 60 percent of total energy, respectively. Sustein Complete is design to have the right proportion under the standard range advised by MOH. Other than that, the osmolality of Sustein Complete is within the range of 300 to 500 mOsm/kg for a product with energy of 1 kcal per ml. Osmolality is the number of molecules per kilogram of solution. This information is important for enteral tube feeding because high osmolality can cause diarrhea in tube fed patient.
Sustein Complete is also enriched with Hydroxymethylbutyrate (HMB) and Lutein. Protein together with HMB helps in muscle building and preventing muscle loss. While lutein is added to aid in eye health. These two additional ingredients give Sustein Complete a perfect complete balance nutrition as oral nutrition supplement or can also be consumed as a meal replacer.
