If you went to a hospital pharmacy, there are Ensure promoters so naturally they will recommend their brand.  Their prices are cheaper than supermarkets though.

If your parents don't have any specific ailments, just get the normal ones.  For convenience, there are packets and cans with different flavours for them to try.  Maybe get 1 of each, see which one they like?  If you are going for the powder form, get the smallest ones to try out the flavour 1st too.

I don't know all the differences but I know Ensure plus is more for weight gain, example: weight loss from liquid diet after operation.

As reviewed in this article above, glucerna is mostly intended for prediabetes or diabetes condition.
if your mum has no need for such measures, Ensure or Ensure Life should be sufficient =)
