Pristine Organics, a Bangalore-based nutraceutical company, has joined hands with Aster CMI Hospital to offer ketogenic dietary therapies  (KDTs) to children suffering from epilepsy.

KDTs are non-pharmacologic treatments for intractable childhood epilepsy. Ketogenic diets are high in fat, has moderate protein and low carbohydrate, which helps to control seizures in children.

Pristine Organics has developed a special ketogenic diet – MetaNutrition KETO – which follows a 3:1 ketogenic formula- suitable for children with epilepsy. This product will be used by the specialists at Aster CMI Hospital, Neukids Centre.

The typical ‘classic’ ketogenic diet provides 3 to 4 grams of fat for every 1 gram of carbohydrate and protein. The planned diet involves special ingredients to be weighed and prepared according to the instruction and counseling provided by the dietitian with minimal deviation expected from the patient.
