Name Change for Abbott Nutrition’s Glucerna Shake

Abbott Nutrition emailed this morning to let us know that Glucerna Shake, the #1 doctor recommended nutrition shake for people with diabetes* ,  will soon undergo a name change.  Per the email we received the change is in response to new regulatory mandates requiring a ‘statement of identity’ on product labels and that there will be absolutely NO change to the product itself or the item numbers.  The new name will be Glucerna Therapeutic Nutrition and will begin entering the market this month.

Regarding the lack of changes to the formulation it was noted that  CARBSTEADY®, which includes slowly digestible carbohydrates designed to help minimize blood sugar spikes, will continue to be a part of the formulation.  Also the 27 vitamins and minerals, 100% of the daily value of Vitamin C, and chromium picolinate, which aides your own body’s insulin, are still there.   More great news is that Glucerna Therapeutic Nutrition will continue to be gluten free and suitable for folks who are lactose intolerant.  Below is a mock-up of the new label:

Keep in mind that the new name rolls out this month so don’t be alarmed, you’re still getting the same great Glucerna Shake, just under a  new name.  If you have any questions please contact us and we’ll be glad to help out!
