Heart-Healthy, Whey & Fiber Meal Replacement Hits the Market

St. Louis, MO (Jan. 31, 2005) ­– Nutritional supplement maker Nutraceutics Corporation today launched the first meal replacement that combines whey protein and seven grams of fiber per serving. The fiber in each low-fat, low-calorie packet of Nutra-Pack™ can help consumers shed pounds and lower cholesterol, thereby reducing the risk of heart disease and other health problems.

“We created Nutra-Pack to give people on the go, who don’t have time to prepare a conventional meal, an alternative to fattening fast-foods,” said Jennifer Jamieson Cherry, president of St. Louis-based Nutraceutics, a company with a 60-year legacy in pharmacology. “Two Nutra-Packs a day give you 14 grams of fiber, plus 100 percent of the daily recommended allowance of protein, calcium, vitamins and other nutrients.”

There is no official recommended daily allowance for fiber, but health professionals say that between 14 and 35 grams per day keeps bowels healthy and helps satisfy appetites by creating a full feeling.

Like fiber, whey protein also satisfies appetites and speeds weight loss. A single serving of Nutra-Pack contains 25 grams of whey protein, half the recommended daily allowance. The whey protein in Nutra-Pack is also a great nutrient-rich alternative for people who don’t eat red meat, and has been shown to aid muscle growth.

Nutra-Pack is the newest of Nutraceutics nearly 20 botanically-based products, all created with the same raw materials and manufacturing standards used by the leading pharmaceutical companies. For a look at additional Nutraceutics products, visit
