What is the shelf-life of an opened can of SolCarb?

Once opened, SolCarb can be kept up to 1 year. An opened can of SolCarb must be kept properly sealed (when not in use) and stored in a cool, dry place (not in the refrigerator). When stored in less than ideal conditions, SolCarb powder will pick up moisture making the powder clumpy and hard.

Can SolCarb be used for tube feedings?

Yes. Using a household measure or a gram scale, measure the required amount of SolCarb powder. Add the powder to the tube feeding formula. Stir or shake until the powder has dissolved. The powder must be fully dissolved or tube blockage may occur. Serve immediately or store in the refrigerator for no longer than 24 hours. Shake or stir before serving.

Can SolCarb be mixed in liquids or moist foods?

Yes. Using a household measure or a gram scale, measure the required amount of SolCarb powder. Add the powder to any liquid or moist food. Stir or shake until the powder had dissolved. Serve immediately or store in the refrigerator for no longer than 24 hours. Shake or stir before serving.

Can SolCarb be used as a replacement for the discontinued Polycose?

Yes, SolCarb is used the same way you used Polycose in the past. The products are considered therapeutic equivalents.
