Bariatric food refers to specially designed meals and snacks that cater to the dietary needs of people who have undergone bariatric surgery. Bariatric surgery, such as gastric bypass or sleeve gastrectomy, can cause significant changes to the digestive system and result in the need for a restricted and nutrient-dense diet. Bariatric food products are formulated to provide adequate amounts of protein and other essential nutrients in small portions to support weight loss and overall health. They come in a variety of forms, including meal replacements, protein bars, and ready-to-eat meals, and are often low in calories, fat, and carbohydrates. These foods are designed to help bariatric patients meet their nutritional needs and achieve their weight loss goals.
