Biss - great flavour for the care sector
Enjoy eating with „BisS“!
For a long time the only aspect of importance for menu planning in the care sector was the physical health aspect. For patients with problems in swallowing of any kind this meant that food had to somehow get into the body no matter what it looked like. For patients this often meant unappetising pap in all kinds of flavours. Progressive care institutions have for a long time be looking for a tasty and appealing alternative to pureed foods. The BisS nutrition concept from RAPS solves a number of problems for kitchen and care staff committed to improving the lives of their service users.
Soup, puree, rice with sauce – the daily menu for people with difficulty swallowing is anything but interesting. Even the most varied of purees, the most committed doctor and the most ambitious cook were unable to go beyond the borders imposed by the health of the patient. Pain when swallowing, absent or incorrect swallowing reflex – a nightmare for the patient. He or she not only has to live with the problem itself, but also with the situation that his or her menu plan is as monotonous as you could possibly imagine.
In the BisS brand we have developed a unique preparation concept which gives the patient back their joy and dignity in eating, promoting a quicker recovery.
The technical name "consistency-defined nutrition" simply means preparing food so that it is not only healthy and tasty but also looks good. Anyone who has ever tried to eat a pork schnitzel with a spoon or suck a fish fillet through a straw will know the enormous role that looks play in food. There's really no way to make this kind of thing taste good. However, for the patients concerned this is often the only way of taking in nutrition; the joy of eating is lost; negative emotions develop – it becomes a vicious circle.
Easy preparation - great impact
With BisS we combine different preparation methods with a variety of texturing agents. This makes it possible to make practically any meal available in a visually appealing form which is at the same time edible for the patient. Even dishes which have traditionally been ruled out, such as meat dishes or vegetables, no longer have to be served in pureed form in a bowl but can be transformed into appetising plated meals with a minimum of effort. Depending on need and patient profile, it's also possible to do the opposite and make classically liquid dishes such as soups or fruit juices spoonable or chewable.
We have paid particular attention to developing these products so that they are simple and time-saving to use, even on a large scale, for example for producing large numbers of portions. It is therefore easy to incorporate BisS into everyday kitchen operations with only the minimum of additional effort, because budgets are always tight and economic viability is an absolutely essential criterion. For the patients concerned, BisS is an important step in the direction of enjoying life, social acceptability and a speedy recovery.
