    What the partnership means
    Improving the lives of those affected by cancer is the mutual goal that brought these two organizations together. Two together is stronger than one alone.

  • Taste

    When we set out to create HORMEL VITAL CUISINE™ ready-to-drink shakes and meals we knew they had to taste great. That’s a given. But we also knew the challenges that cancer patients face when in treatment. Aversions to strong tastes and smells, a metallic flavor associated with many foods and loss of appetite, making the desire to eat almost non- existent. This was our challenge. To create a line of nutrient-dense products that helped to meet these specific needs and tasted great.

    unique journey

    First thing was to limit the ingredients that would affect taste in a negative way. Many other products add vitamins and minerals in their attempt at good nutrition. However, we knew that limiting these added ingredients would help to diminish a metallic taste for those in treatment. What we ended up with was a low ingredient statement and a balanced taste.


    The next challenge was to create flavors that would be appetizing. Luckily we had some help. The master chefs at the Cancer Nutrition Consortium. They worked hard to create the flavor profiles that would provide protein and calories for cancer patients while giving them great flavor they could feel confident about. No harsh smells or flavors. Just great tasting protein-packed nutrition for when you need it most.

  • Getting Enough Protein During Cancer Treatment

    Getting the right nutrition is essential during cancer treatment. This can be a challenge because chemo and radiation treatments can significantly affect your appetite and can make it more difficult to eat. Therefore, ensuring you still get enough protein, hydration and energy is important.

    Protein has a role in building and maintaining lean muscle mass and other bodily tissues. It also has a role in maintaining the function of various other body systems. Protein is a critical building block for your health, especially during cancer treatment when you need to maintain your strength and muscle mass.

    vital cuisine protein drinkWe created HORMEL VITAL CUISINE ™ products with the guidance of top nutritionists, dietitians and physicians, to help you through the challenges of cancer treatment. We’re dedicated to making sure that we provide you with much-needed nutritious protein to help maintain lean muscle mass and maintain your strength throughout treatment.

    Our convenient, ready-to-drink shakes have 25g of essential protein while also delivering a great balance of carbohydrates, fats and hydration. Our protein powders can be added to drinks, desserts or other foods to get you a solid 25g added dose of the protein you need.
