Scandishake Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

How many calories are there in Scandishake Mix?

Scandishake Mix contains 588 calories (kcal) per serving of 220ml when mixed with whole milk. Scandishake Mix is a powdered based supplement which can be mixed with milk or water , though it is advisable to mix with full-fat milk to increase the caloric intake and assist in weight gain.

Does Scandishake Mix contain Protein?

Scandishake Mix contains 11.7g of protein per serving when mixed with whole milk.

How many servings are there in one Scandishake Mix box?

Each Scandishake Mix box contains 6 sachets of 85g powder or 6 individual servings equivalent to 6 Ensure Plus bottles. It should be remembered that Scandishake contains more calories per serving then Ensure Plus or Fortisip Drinks so less liquid is required to reach the same caloric intake thus making it a more cost effective option. Each powdered sachet can make up to 220ml of high calorie drink ideal for weight gain.

Is Scandishake cheaper then Ensure Plus and/or Fortisip Drinks?

Scandishake Mix is available direct from www.NutriDrinks.co.uk for £17.65 for 6 sachets in a variety of flavours including, Scandishake Chocolate, Scandishake Vanilla, Scandishake Strawberry and Scandishake Neutral.

Each Scandishake sachet costs approximately £2.94 and provides 588 calories per 220ml serving. Ensure Plus and Fortisip can cost between £2.90 - £3.10 per serving and only provides up to 330ml calories per comparable serving of 220ml. It is for this reason that Scandishake Mix is more cost-effective , though not as convenient as the pre-prepared and ready to drink Ensure and Fortisip drinks.

Which Scandishake flavour tastes the best?

Scandishake Mix is available in the following four flavours:

Vanilla
Neutral
Chocolate
Strawberry

The most popular and highly rated Scandishake flavours are Vanilla and Chocolate.

Scandishake Chocolate is a great alternative for those individuals who are looking for a chocolate flavoured nutritional drinks supplement. It is widely accepted that Ensure Plus Chocolate and Fortisip Chocolate do not represent the real chocolate flavour unlike Scandishake Mix Chocolate which is why this is a favourite with NutriDrink customers!

Is Scandishake prescription only in the UK?

You can buy Scandishake Mix direct from www.NutriDrinks.co.uk in the UK. Scandishake is available on prescription in England and Wales under the NHS and they are also available to purchase without prescription.

Can Scandishake be used as a ‘sole source of nutrition’ like Ensure and Fortisip?

Scandishake Mix is not nutritionally complete and therefore can not be used as a sole source of nutrition like Ensure and Fortisip which are complete in essential vitamins and minerals required by the human body on a daily basis. As Scandishake is nutritionally incomplete and high in fat and carbohydrates it should be best used for supporting weight gain and weight maintenance. Scandishake can also be used in cases of malnutrition and malabsorption as a dietary supplement.
