Ensure nutritional beverages have been around for quite some time now, providing patients with what they thought was an adequately nutritious meal replacement. Unfortunately, one patient has exposed the true nature of these drinks, and how they may not be nutritious at all.

The amount of actual nutrients in the drinks is so small that it can be compared to a typical junk food snack.
