  • Caution
    • Supply additional calories from carbohydrate
    • Inborn errors of metabolism
    • Medical status prevents adequate intake of calories
    • Gastrointestinal volume is restricted
    • Renal solute load is limited
    • Need to increase energy density of foods

    *Potential renal solute load: 0.07 mOsm/g (PRSL = N/28 + Na + Cl + K = Pa)

    Renal solute load (RSL) refers to all solutes of endogenous or dietary origin that require excretion by the kidneys.

    *Potential renal solute load (PRSL) refers to solutes of dietary origin that would need to be excreted in the urine if none were diverted into synthesis of new tissue and none were lost through non-renal routes.

    Where N is nitrogen, Na is sodium, Cl is chloride, K is potassium and Pa is available phosphorus, and the units are in millimoles (or milliosmoles), except for N, which is total (mmol) based on the assumption that the modal number of N atoms per molecule is 2. Pa is equal to total P except in soy-based diets, in which Pa is about two-thirds of total P.

  • (Tube or oral feeding)

    1. Refer to the table below to determine the amount of powder needed to meet additional caloric needs as suggested by your healthcare professional.
    2. Using a household measure or a gram scale, measure the required amount of powder.
    3. Add powder to any liquid, moist food or tube feeding formula.
    4. Stir or shake until powder has dissolved. If tube feedings, powder must be fully dissolved or tube blockage may occur.
    5. Serve immediately or store in refrigerator for no longer than 24 hours. Shake or stir before serving.
