I work in an ICU and deal with different types of liquid nutritional supplements for patients who cannot eat solid food. I thought I would post some facts about these supplements to see what people think.
Jevity - 29.4% fat/53.6% CHO/17% protein - Major Ingredients: water, corn maltodextrin, corn syrup, caseinates, corn & canola oil, MCTs, soy protein isolates..... - http://abbottnutrition.com/products/jevity-1_5-cal
Promote - 23% fat/52% CHO/23% protein - Major Ingredients: water, corn maltodextrin, caseinate, soy protein isolate, MCTs, soy & safflower oil... Intended for those with low caloric needs and those at risk for protein energy malnutrition - http://abbottnutrition.com/products/promote
Oxepa -55.2% fat/28.1% CHO/16.7% protein - Major Ingredients: water, caseinates, sugar, corn maltodextrin, canola oil, MCTs, marine oil (anchovy, menhaden, salmon, sardine, tuna), borage oil... Intended to modulate the inflammatory response - http://abbottnutrition.com/Products/oxepa
Obviously one is quite different from the others and this one is usually the least used. Thoughts? Comments? Concerns?
If you have a loved one in the hospital receiving any of these, please do not storm into the place with a loaded semi-auto making demands. I am not a medical doctor and therefore the information I post should not be used as medical advice. I do not condone the use of one of these substances over the other.
