In Japan there are approximately 250,000 patients who receive hemodialysis
(extracorporeal dialysis) and this number is said to be growing at a pace
of 10,000 people per year.
For patient milk is one of the highest sources of nourishment. But because of the high level of phosphorus and potassium in milk doctors often stop dialysis from drinking it.
Ikaruga Milk has recently developed a
unique process which allows milk to keep its original taste while cutting the
level of phosphorus by 50％ and cutting
the level of potassium by 25％. On November 24, 2000 Ikaruga Milk received the patent for this process
from the National Patent Office.
Through this process “Ikaruga Low
Phosphorus Milk” has been birthed. For those patients who have not been able to
drink milk because of the high level of phosphorus and potassium Ikaruga Milk
is happy to offer this dairy product. Because its taste is comparable to normal
milk, we hope that you will enjoy it.
Our greatest joy would be that “Ikaruga Low
Phosphorus Milk” could be of help to you.
Please try and drink it. Finally from all
of our workers we pray that daily you can walk in good health.
