ElementGold Plus+ Overview

ElementGold Plus+ is a nutrionally balanced elemental food, with added whole protein. It currently comes in 3 variants, all with the same base nutrients but with different protein, sweetener and flavour options.

Elemental Diet Food PLUS Protein

Elemental foods aim to provide all ingredients in the most broken down form possible. In the case of protein this would mean using only free-form amino acids. Although important, the elemental free-form amino acids do not provide enough of the body's protein requirements, particularly when trying to maintain weight. This is why ElementGold Plus+ and ElementGold Plus+ Vegan add whole protein to a base of elemental amino acids. ElementGold Plus+ adds a premium form of Whey Protein Isolate and in the case of ElementGold Plus+ Vegan protein derived from rice is used.

Balanced Nutrition - Low Trigger

ElementGold Plus+ contains carefully selected ingredients to provide balanced nutrition whilst minimising the triggering of sensitive digestive systems. The nutrition is balanced in accordance with the Food for Special Medical Purposes (FSMP) section of the Australia New Zealand Food Standards Code. You can read more about this on the Ingredient Details page.

Taste Matters

Carefully balanced nutrition can't help if you can't stand to drink it. Great care has been taken to make ElementGold Plus+ is as tasty as possible, whilst still providing the benefits of a low-trigger, nutritionally balanced, elemental shake.

When deciding which version is suitable for your situation, you'll need to consider the protein type added and if sugars are acceptable. The versions with whey protein isolate (WPI) use a premium WPI that in many cases is suitable for people who have been avoiding milk and has a smooth texture. ElementGold Plus+ Vegan adds protein that has been isolated from rice. It is slightly more textured but is vegan and an option for people who cannot tolerate the WPI version.

The second consideration is sugar. The chocolate version is sweetened using fructose and dextrose for a rich pre-sweetened flavour. Some gastrointestinal conditions require sugar to be avoided and in these cases the unsweetened versions are suitable. The intention is that in most cases a suitable sweetener is added for taste and in most cases stevia is good choice.
