Want to “Ensure” That You Get Sick? Then Drink Ensure Every Day!

Want to ensure that you stay healthy and free of disease? Well this Ensure "healthy drink", recommended for patients at risk of malnutrition, sounds really promising! Until you take a closer look at the nutrition facts, that is...

Sugar...

Just look at the two main ingredients (after water): corn maltodextrin and sugar. WHO recommends no more than 10% of energy in the diet to come from sugar, ideally below 5%. The sugar in this drink makes up a full 25 % of the energy. Five times more than the maximum recommendation.

...and then more bad carbs

Add the refined starch (corn maltodextrin) that rapidly turns into glucose in the blood, and the truly bad carbs add up to 56 % of the energy in this drink.

This is not that different from eating a bag of candy or drinking soda. Add a vitamin pill and you'll get exactly the same effect.

If you want to ensure that you become obese and sick, then you should buy this drink.
