Medical Nutrition USA Announces Pro-Stat® Flavor Enhancement and Kosher Certification

ENGLEWOOD, NJ--(Marketwire - September 15, 2008) - Medical Nutrition USA, Inc. (NASDAQ: MDNU) today announced the introduction of a significant flavor enhancement and Kosher certification for its line of Pro-Stat® liquid proteins. Pro- Stat, of which over 50 million servings have been administered in health care facilities, has been clinically proven to aid in healing pressure ulcers and treating protein energy malnutrition. The new Wild Cherry Punch enhanced flavor has met with overwhelmingly enthusiastic response in tests with clinicians and patients. "Achieving such great taste, while maintaining nutrient density, represents a quantum leap forward technologically. Enhanced taste and aroma improve patient compliance and reduce the likelihood of flavor fatigue. Pro-Stat is also now the only liquid protein certified Kosher and pareve enabling kosher health care facilities to benefit from Pro-Stat's unique properties. We are really excited by these twin breakthroughs and expect them to further expand the market for Pro-Stat," said Frank A. Newman, Medical Nutrition's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.
