Are BOOST® Drinks safe to drink after being frozen?

BOOST® drinks are not designed to be frozen. However, BOOST® drinks can be frozen if you prefer a slushy or ice cream consistency. In that case, pour the BOOST® drink in a clean, sealed container prior to freezing, and freeze for approximately 60-90 minutes. Consume the frozen product. We do not recommend freezing BOOST® drinks and then thawing it. If you thaw BOOST® after freezing it can crack the emulsion causing the product to layer which can affect the texture, flavor and quality of the product.

Why do some BOOST® bottles have a foil seal and other do not?

We have multiple manufacturing facilities which produce the BOOST® products. Some of these facilities have machines which use a foil film to produce a hermetic seal; therefore products manufactured at those locations have a foil seal with an over-cap. Other facilities use machines where the cap alone provides the hermetic seal. All BOOST® products are safe and adhere to the Nestlé quality standards.

Are BOOST® products suitable for lactose intolerance?

Yes, Most BOOST® nutritional products are suitable for lactose intolerance (but not for individuals with galactosemia). Products that are not suitable for lactose intolerance include: BOOST MAX™ Shake, BOOST GLUCOSE CONTROL® High Protein Drink and BOOST® High Protein Powder Drink Mix

I noticed the statement “Not for individuals with galactosemia” is found on some BOOST® Drinks. What does this mean?

Galactosemia is a genetic metabolic disorder. Individuals with this condition are unable to metabolize galactose, which is one of the two molecules that make up lactose or "milk sugar". These individuals must therefore eliminate all lactose from their diets. Nestlé Health Science products that are labeled as "suitable for lactose intolerance" may contain some residual lactose and therefore would not be appropriate for individuals with galactosemia.

Do BOOST® Drinks contain caffeine?

BOOST® drinks do not contain any added caffeine. However, the chocolate flavored products contain a small amount of naturally occurring caffeine contributed by the cocoa (<5 mg caffeine per serving). The non-chocolate varieties do not contain caffeine.

What kind of vitamins and minerals are in BOOST® products?

The vitamins and minerals in BOOST® products come from a combination of naturally-occurring and added synthetic sources. Details behind the vitamins and minerals contained in each of our products can be found with each of our product pages here.
