The Next Stage In Food Evolution: Capsulized Food

Anyone who has spent a day fasting from food, or who has even skipped a meal, knows just how much time we save when we aren’t provisioning and consuming meals. Of course, when it comes to eating efficiency won’t be our main concern. If we were to justify the reasons why we need to have certain kinds of food, it would be: (1) to get the nutrients that we need (2) to help us reach our goals (weight reduction, muscle gain) (3) for its taste (4) and for convenience. Foods that meet two or three of these requirements quickly become a mainstay in most diets.

A new development in nutrition research called capsulized food aims to exceed these requirements. Pennsylvania-based Protica Research is the first of what will likely be many companies dabbling in this new food frontier. Among other development initiatives on their roster, Protica Research engineers liquid foods that are extremely-compact, nutrient-dense, and above all else, very palatable. Profect, their first product, provides 25 grams of protein and a whole array of water-soluble vitamins in less than three fluid ounces. This mobile nutrition has revolutionized some people’s eating habits with increasingly more people beginning to evaluate their eating practices on a daily basis. An examination of the 4 fundamental necessities for food will help explain why.


Nutrition. It is our first priority when it comes to eating. Though it might not be our predominant focus when we reach for food, but it’s undoubtedly the main reason for eating. Nutrient-rich as well as nutrient-poor foods are all over and we should always eat enough of the nutrient-rich types of food for our health, well-being, and energy needs.

The challenge is that nutrient-dense foods such as milk, eggs, fish, and chicken are not always within arms reach. Junk foods, snacks foods and fast foods, which are generally nutrient-poor foods, are the ones which are most often readily accessible. It often takes too much effort for a busy person to acquire the necessary vitamins and protein, and so we end up going without. In the long run, this may be damaging since our immune system and energy levels will more than likely suffer. Studies have shown that many of the so-called junk food junkies and fast food addicts would favor eating nutritionally sound foods if they were within arms reach.


For many of us, we maintain a careful eye on the foods we eat. Either our objective is to lose weight, build muscles or simply keep what we have. We catch ourselves looking for foods that may help us with these goals, whether we’re passing by grocery store aisles or reading a restaurant menu.

Foods which are low in carbohydrates would be the top priority for some. These consumers have become more aware of the health risks and weight gain associated with eating carbohydrate-rich foods. Others prioritize low-fat foods. While others try to establish a balanced diet made up of proteins, carbohydrates, and fats.

The common denominator in all of these diets is protein, together with the supporting micronutrients, such as nutritional vitamins and minerals.

It’s usually a lot easier for you to come up with foods that are rich in vitamins and proteins with no carbohydrates or fats when you are in the kitchen, but it’s a completely different challenge if you discuss compact transportable meals. Manufacturers like EAS and Protica Research offer high protein beverages to assist any transformation goals. Proticas Profect offers a full 25 grams of protein and the entire spectrum of water-soluble vitamins. The vital point for the diet conscious, however, is that each one of these nutrients come without the cost of fat and carbohydrates This would help your body maintain or improve your health and energy without the unwanted carbohydrates or fats.


Taste can be a very big issue for many of us in terms of picking food for our diets. It doesn’t matter how nutritious it is because if it tastes bad, chances are we won’t be eating it. In recent years, food producers have been keenly aware of this fact as they were pressured to remove from the supermarket shelves those products which had unfavorable tastes. As consumer expectations have continued to rise, a plethora of great-tasting and nutritious food products have entered the market. Capitalizing on this fact, Protica Research developed a line of flavors for its capsulized protein beverage that focus on age groups from adolescents to seniors. Double-blind taste tests have proven that the flavour profile of Profect is indistinguishable from non-carbonated fruit drinks on the market


Every once in a while, possibly even every evening, we want to sit down to a properly-set table and share a meal with family or friends. Replacing fresh foods or taking this important ritual of our daily lives isn’t what capsulized food is all about. It’s really about the life-style that all of us have in the 21st century where everyone is in a rush, thereby spending much less time in some places within the home such as the garden or kitchen. This is true for stay-at-home moms in addition to business executives putting in long days at the office.

This on-the-go lifestyle is not compatible with eating nutritious meals. Finding the time to look for a proper meal is becoming harder, and this has prompted lots of people to be dependent upon compact snack or junk foods which they’ll readily slip inside their purse of briefcase. As a result, compact foods have become a mainstay of the American diet due to their portability and fast consumption. However we frequently find that the portability, and thus the convenience, of these foods is lacking. The conventional convenience foods that we will find in grocery and convenience stores are not typically packaged with rough transportation in mind. The packaging of many food and beverage products accidentally break open after they have spent time in a bag or purse.

Once the packaging is opened, you are usually faced with another widespread complaint. Meal replacement bars are normally sticky or crumbly, which is normally true for many of the convenience foods available. You also can find yourself reaching for water to wash them down. The downside is, convenience ought to imply napkins and water not required.

Even though portability and fast consumption are two qualities that we look for in a convenient food, these are sometimes very elusive however.

Protica Research provides two innovations in terms of convenience. Profect protein beverage which is liquid and weighs less than three fluid ounces, making it easily consumable even while on the go, is the first one. Second, Profect takes portability to a brand new level by packaging it in a patent-pending, virtually unbreakable container. Which means that you will not have to worry about your meal ending up throughout your purse or briefcase and you can take it anywhere.


The advent of health-consciousness has come at a time when our lifestyles are increasingly hectic. This implies that people are looking for a wholesome, nutritious, and portable food that’s fast to consume. In order to meet this demand, the food industry must adapt and respond. Protica Research is developing capsulized foods that may deliver on-the-go nutrition which is more mobile, convenient, and tastier than its predecessors.

Orthopedic Degenerative Diseases
Every bone, tissues and tendon in the body is a part of the skeleton system and a potential contributor to orthopedics. Disorders are ailments, injuries or diseases that cause knee problems, whiplash, dislocated shoulder, torn cartilages, foot pain and fibromyalgia. These are only a few of the known orthopedic disorders. There are as many treatments for orthopedic disorders as there are problems and injuries in the muscles, ligaments and joints. One of the most significant orthopedic health problems today, low back pain, can be caused by overuse and strenuous activities, improper use and exposure to continual vibrations. Traumas or injuries to the back can cause chronic low back pain and degeneration of the vertebrae is a definite cause of low back pain. Orthopedics and its related disorders cover the gamut from tendons, bones to ligaments and back again. Pediatric orthopedics also deals with the surgery related diseases.
Under this Track we are going to discuss various disorders which affect the overall skeleton system which includes: Osteochondroma, Muscle Injuries and Disorders, Low Back Pain, Pain Relief Therapies, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Joint Infection, Spinal Disorders & Therapies, orthopedic spine, Dupuytren’s Contracture.
The most common form of arthritis is osteoarthritis with the aging of the US population, the prevalence of doctor-diagnosed arthritis is expected to increase in the coming decades. By the year 2030, an estimated 67 million (25% of the projected total adult population) adults aged 18 years and older will have arthritis.
Arthropathies and Inflammatory Myopathies
Arthropathy is a collective term for any disease of the joints. A myriad of arthropathic disorders can afflict the joints, including sacroiliitis which causes inflammation in the sacroiliac joint, Charcot’s joints which leads to the degeneration of a joint due to nerve damage, and arthrogryposis which results in joint contractures. The enteropathic arthropathies are a group of rheumatologic conditions that share a link to gastrointestinal (GI) pathology. The inflammatory myopathies are a group of diseases that involve chronic muscle inflammation, accompanied by muscle weakness. Another word for chronic inflammation of muscle tissue is myositis. Muscle inflammation may be caused by an allergic reaction, exposure to a toxic substance or medicine, another disease such as cancer or rheumatic conditions, or a virus or other infectious agent, Orthopedic nursing should be done by orthopedic nurse and orthopedic nurse practioners with care in such conditions. The chronic inflammatory myopathies are idiopathic, meaning they have no known cause. They are thought to be autoimmune disorders, in which the body’s white blood cells (that normally fight disease) attack blood vessels, normal muscle fibers, and connective tissue in organs, bones, and joints.
Under this track various topics will be discussed which will explore various aspects of these diseases such as Diagnosis of myopathies, Spondylarthropathy, Anti-synthetase syndrome, Reactive arthropathy, Enteropathic arthropathy, Diabetic arthropathy, Crystal arthropathy.
Worldwide incidence of inheritable myopathies is about 14 percent. Of all inheritable myopathyies, central core disease accounts for 16 percent of cases; nemaline rod myopathy accounts for 20 percent; centronuclear myopathy accounts for 14 percent; and multicore myopathy accounts for 10 percent.Worldwide incidence of inflammatory myopathies is about 5-10 per 100,000 people.
Connective Tissue Disorders and Soft Tissue Rheumatism
Connective tissue diseases are actually a group of medical diseases. A connective tissue disease is any disease that has the connective tissues of the body as a primary target of pathology. The connective tissues are the structural portions of our body that essentially hold the cells of the body together .Connective tissue disease refers to a group of disorders involving the protein-rich tissue that supports organs and other parts of the body, Orthopedic nursing and care should be taken by orthopedic nurse and orthopedic nurse practioners. Examples of connective tissue are fat, bone, and cartilage. These disorders often involve the joints, muscles, and skin, but they can also involve other organs and organ systems including the eyes, heart, lungs, kidneys, gastrointestinal tract, and blood vessels. Bursitis and tendinitis are conditions that are also known as soft tissue rheumatic syndromes. A syndrome is a group of signs and symptoms that occur together and indicate a particular problem. This type of syndrome produces pain, swelling, or inflammation in the tissues and structures around a joint, such as the tendons, ligaments, bursae, and muscles. Soft tissue rheumatism is one of the most common and most misunderstood categories of disorders facing the Orthopedic Surgeon and pediatric surgeon. Among the more common types are subacromial bursitis, epicondylitis, trochanteric bursitis, anserine bursitis, and fibromyalgia. The keys to the diagnosis of soft-tissue rheumatism are the history and, more importantly, the physical examination. Extensive laboratory testing and radiographs are not as helpful in evaluating patients with these complaints
There are over 200 disorders that impact connective tissue. Injuries can cause connective tissue disorders, such as scars. Others, such as Heritable connective tissue disorders, Autoimmune connective tissue disorders, Scurvy, Diagnosis of connective tissue disorders, Tendinitis and Enthesitis, Epicondylitis, Tenosynovitis and Bursitis, Myofascial Pain, Tennis Elbow. The Connective tissue disorders and surgeries related to pediatric orthopedics can be treated by pediatric surgeons.
As awareness and acceptance of soft tissue rheumatism among physicians and the general population increases, the diagnosed and drug-treated population will grow by 1.7 million from 2010 to 2020.Orthopedic manufacturers are also aware of the present statistics and manufacturing orthopedic implants and orthopedic medical supplies according to the present day demand.
Arthritis – Types and Treatment
Arthritis is a form of joint disorder that involves inflammation of one or more joints. There are over 100 different forms of arthritis. The most common form of arthritis is osteoarthritis (degenerative joint disease), a result of trauma to the joint, infection of the joint, or age. Other arthritis forms are rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, and related autoimmune diseases. Septic arthritis is caused by joint infection. Arthritis is a rheumatic disease that has symptoms of pain, limited movement, swelling and pain in connective tissues. There are almost 50 million people in the United States who experience some type of arthritis. Arthritis is chronic or rarely changes and can progress slowly, and unfortunately many of the causes of arthritis are unknown. Arthritis literally means inflammation of one or more joints. Arthritis is frequently accompanied by joint pain. Joint pain is referred to as arthralgia. This track will discuss about Arthritis and its different types as well as treatment modalities.Ankylosing spondylitis, Juvenile idiopathic arthritis, Septic arthritis, Gout and pseudo-gout, Physical and occupational therapy, Arthroscopic surgery, Rheumatoid arthritis.
