Bariatric Advantage launches new Pro Joe Magnifico Mocha Decaf

20 grams of protein, five grams of carbohydrates, and zero grams of fat.

Bariatric Advantage has announced that bariatric patients now have another option to increase their daily protein intake with the new decaffeinated version of Pro Joe Magnifico Mocha. One serving of the decaffeinated beverage provides 20 grams of protein, five grams of carbohydrates, and zero grams of fat.

“Our Pro Joe line has been very popular, so we are pleased to offer a decaffeinated version,” said Bret Petkus, Vice President of Sales for Bariatric Advantage. “We expect patients will appreciate this new alternative to achieving their protein intake goals.”

Patients who have had bariatric surgery may be especially challenged to get enough protein because they are usually eating less food than they did before their surgery, and their altered digestive systems may absorb nutrients differently. Pro Joe Magnifico Mocha Decaf helps them to add protein to their diet in the form of coffee-flavoured beverage but without the jitters often associated with coffee.

Getting the right amount of protein is important for everyone and especially for bariatric surgery patients, with recommendations for average protein intake per day averaging 60–120 grams daily depending on height, weight, gender, type of procedure, and other factors1. Because of these variations, it is suggested that people ask their doctor or dietician what level of intake is right for them.

The popularity of coffee inspired Bariatric Advantage to offer a decaffeinated version of Pro Joe Magnifico Mocha to help bariatric surgery patients, and other individuals desiring to increase their protein intake, to get more protein along with the flavour of their favourite beverage.

According to the company, Pro Joe Magnifico Mocha Decaf is a convenient and delicious way to enjoy that taste without the effects that are often associated with caffeine, and to receive protein in a way that supplements a nutritious diet and is easily absorbed.
