Purchase 1 box for my 10 year old. He is taking hockey and swim and this one is handy if two sessions are just 30 min away.

If you work in a hospital, how can you be clueless about big pharma and nutrition, pharmaceutical and hospital sales reps, etc.? Those Boost samples don't just fall out of the sky. Lots of profit in marketing sugar water to medical providers. And have you never heard anything about hospital risks (e.g., hospital-acquired infections)? Even janitors at hospitals get some in-service training about safety and best practices. If you really do work with a hospital (not just in fantasy, or in a video game, or wearing a nurse costume on Halloween), please, ask your HR dept. to do some due diligence and provide training sometime.
Please explain how you connected Boost nutritional supplements to hospital acquired infections...

In for one thanks OP.

Those worried about the health risks of Boost just don't drink it a lot. I go to the gym every day so im very conscious of what I drink and eat. Use Boost as a Protein treat and you'll be fine. One Boost drink a day isnt going to kill you.

I drink the high calorie version (drinking it right now actually) twice daily because I'm severely underweight, and wouldn't otherwise be able to get enough calories in my diet, and yeah, it's used very very often in hospitals. Ensure as well.

If you don't have a problem maintaining weight I don't think there's any reason for you to drink this stuff. It's sickeningly sweet, and there are better ways for you to get the vitamins you need, and if you're trying to lose weight there are better meal replacements. Having said that, I used to think it tasted good, so it might just be the fact that I've been drinking it for years that I'm tired of it.

what is the best flavor to buy ?
I've got a big stock of strawberry & it's very bland.

These are small bottles, 8 ounces. Personally, I prefer Slim Fast, same nutrition, 11 ounces, much better taste. Ensure, Slimfast, Boost, are all pretty much the same, the rest ismarketing.

Psst, I'm a dietitian. There's nothing wrong with Boost, or any other RTD generally speaking. I give said Food Safety and Physical Safety inservices to my team.

This has nothing to do with big pharma; take your tinfoil hat off, yeah?

Boost is sugar water? Do you understand how nutrition works, or are you another armchair expert nutritionist telling the actual expert that works in the field how to do their job?
It is well documented that cancer cells love sugar. Giving this to cancer patients is bad. That is what I was told.

You know what else loves sugar? Every single organ in your body, notably the brain and heart.

This just in: Don't feed cancer patients fruit.

I swear, this field.

Please speak to a medical provider before expressing this kind of misinformation

I totally agree with you. Get the high calorie Boost if you want to gain weight. Avoid the Boost High Protein. There are better ways, i.e. protein powders without sugar, to get protein.

My wife was in the hospital for 2 1/2 months. Her total nutrients were from tube feeding. They used Nestle's Nutrien 2.0.

What does your wife's acute care, sedentary tube feeding protocol have to do with the general, otherwise healthy and not sedentary population?

You guys are acting like somebody is mainlining a damn RTD supplement for their only source of kcals. I'm all for being mindful of your intake, but stop fear mongering and stop proselytizing your own ignorant opinions as facts.

Ok, then let's just concentrate on the thread subject Boost High Protein, just the facts as taken from the label, and why one would be drinking this. To me it looks like primarily as another protein source. In each 8oz bottle there are 20g protein, but there are also 15g sugar. So again, there are other ways if you want to increase your protein intake of doing that without ingesting more sugar, i.e., protein powders without sugar.

Those who say this is cheaper at B&M stores. First 99% of the time it is not cheaper in stores.

Second 100% of the time it is the 10g of protein variety not the 20g of protein which these are.

LOL I love armchair dietitians!

We use Boost and other brands relentlessly in the hospital. Guess I'm killing my patients.
They use Fentanyl in hospitals too. Using a specialized product in a narrow set of circumstances under a doctor's care is way different than a bunch of healthy people just self prescribing at home.

Read the label. You don't need a dietician degree to see this is full of junk. If you have an 80 year old post op patient that is wasting away this shelf stable syrup can be a life saver. I've seen patients like that. If those people ate a bacon cheeseburger I would be delighted. Totally different circumstance.

And the other poster is right. Hospitals get this stuff waaayyyy cheaper than this. It is all over the place in a medical setting so the general public (and apparently some dieticians) think it is "healthy". It isn't. It is a necessary evil in certain circumstances.

Don't be lazy and just wave your degree around. READ! After water the most important ingredient in this beverage is CORN SYRUP. I'll hold my fire for now and wait for you to explain to us how CORN SYRUP is healthy for the average person.

Nothing wrong with Boost. Go find something else to complain about.
