Altrix® Fortifier is specially formulated for people having difficulties meeting their dietary needs from food alone.

Altrix® Fortifier can be easily added to most foods, including soups, casseroles, mashed potatoes and desserts. It is designed to help people supplement their daily nutrient intake due to illness or difficulties eating solid foods.

Altrix® Fortifier contains a high level of calcium when used as a meal replacement (50g per serve) that helps enhance bone mineral density, and can also help to manage the risks associated with osteoporosis in those aged 65 years and over.

Altrix® Fortifier also contains a natural sugar called Isomaltulose. Unlike sucrose, Isomaltulose is a slow release sugar that won’t raise blood sugar to the same level or at the same rate as with ordinary table sugar (sucrose), but provides a similar amount of energy.
