Why did Abbott choose strawberry for the new Ensure Pre-Surgery flavor?
We selected a strawberry flavoring system because it has large appeal to most patients and allowed the product to remain kosher, halal, and gluten-free, and it did not contain any of the 8 major food allergens required by the FDA to be listed on food labels.
Are there natural strawberry derivatives in the strawberry flavoring of Ensure Pre-Surgery?
Yes, there are natural strawberry derivatives and no artificial flavoring in this formulation.
Will Arctic Chill Ensure Pre-Surgery continue to be sold?
No, Arctic Chill will be discontinued, and Strawberry will take its place.
