Adequate protein intake and maintenance of nitrogen equilibrium are very important for the elderly population because this age group is at increased risk for illness and malnutrition. The current protein intake recommendation for healthy elderly people is 0.8 g/kg body weight/day and evidence suggests that this intake should be even higher. In many cases, a loss of appetite, difficulties chewing as well as difficulties in the ability to cook protein-rich meals are causes of inadequate protein intake in elderly people. The elderly population would benefit from the availability of protein rich food which is both tasteful and easy to consume, in formats they are used to.
