Front Nutr 2022 2;9:802805. Epub 2022 Jun 2.

Central Research Laboratory, The Nisshin OilliO Group, Ltd., Tokyo, Japan.

In the 1950s, the production of processed fats and oils from coconut oil was popular in the United States. It became necessary to find uses for the medium-chain fatty acids (MCFAs) that were byproducts of the process, and a production method for medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) was established. At the time of this development, its use as a non-fattening fat was being studied. Read More

Evaluating the impact of using a wound-specific oral nutritional supplement to support wound healing in a rehabilitation setting.

Int Wound J 2022 Jun 9. Epub 2022 Jun 9.

Department of Pharmacy, TIRR Memorial Hermann Hospital, Houston, Texas, USA.

Since protein-energy malnutrition or specific nutrient deficiencies can delay wound healing, nutritionally focused care is a key strategy to help prevent or treat the occurrence of non-healing wounds. The objective of our study of inpatients in a rehabilitation hospital was to quantify the effect of daily wound-specific oral nutritional supplementation (WS-ONS) on healing chronic wounds.
