Liquid food diet from advanced aging society Japan / MAIBALANCE lineup from MEIJI company

From Japan’s leading manufacturer MEIJI company, ”Meibalance” is making waves in Southeast Asia, offering a perfect balance of protein, fats, and minerals in a variety of delicious flavors. Approved by Japan’s Consumer Affairs Agency, this high-energy solution is redefining healthcare nutrition for aging populations, ensuring safety, reliability, and convenience.

Japan, as an advanced aging society, has leveraged its technological expertise to create products that serve as valuable lessons for the world. Major Japanese companies like Meiji and Maruha Nichiro are actively expanding into aging societies in Asia, where the aging population is on the rise.

Aging is becoming a significant phenomenon in Southeast Asia, with the percentage of the total working-age population (15-64 years old) anticipated to start declining by 2024. This demographic shift is prompting Japanese businesses to proactively enter these markets and apply their technological advancements to address the challenges associated with an aging population.

Meiji is expanding the sales of its hospital-oriented nutritional product, “Meibalance,” in Taiwan. Meibalance is a liquid diet that provides a well-balanced intake of protein, fats, minerals, and other nutrients and has been widely utilized in many medical institutions in Japan.

Meibalance offers a range of products, including drinks, jellies, and ice cream.
