What is Vital Cuisine?

Hormel Cancer Nutrition Vital Cuisine 100% Whey Protein Shake Mix Hormel Foods believes in making lives better through nutritious, enjoyable food. That’s been the company’s commitment since 1891. Lately they've taken that commitment to a new level, helping cancer patients get critical nourishment when eating isn’t easy. Hormel Foods teamed up with the Cancer Nutrition Consortium (CNC) to create the HORMEL VITAL CUISINE brand—a line of convenient, high-protein shakes , ready-to-serve meals and whey powders. The CNC’s top oncology nutritionist and master chefs provided the dietary and culinary expertise that they’ve put into HORMEL VITAL CUISINE™ products. While providing dense nutrition, HORMEL VITAL CUISINE products taste good, and are specially crafted to go down easy.

  • Powerful Nourishment- Hormel Vital Cuisine high protein and whey powders provide essential nutrients that you can easily drink or mix into food during your treatment for cancer.
  • Great Flavor, Smooth Texture- We know that smells and tastes affect you different during treatment, which can make eating and drinking become a problem. With that said, they've thoughtfully crafted the taste and texture of HORMEL VITAL CUISINE™ products specifically for the patient's enjoyment.
  • Convenient Dietary Support- HORMEL VITAL CUISINE™ branded shakes come in re-sealable single serve bottles you can close and refrigerate to drink each serving gradually. Also, their powdered whey mixes can be made as rich and thick as one may like.
