ProSource TF is a high protein, very low carbohydrate supplement that enables you to increase the protein intake of patients being enterally tube fed without increasing their carbohydrates or volume; or changing their required enteral feed.
Each 45ml sachet of ProSource TF contains 11g protein and only 1g carbohydrates making it ideal when you need to alter the ratio of protein to carbohydrates that are being delivered by their required enteral feed.
ProSource TF has the consistency of water – meaning that you can administer it using a standard enteral syringe into the patient’s feeding tube without any risk of tube blockage.*
The protein source used inProSource TF is hydrolysed collagen, which is easily broken down to yield free amino acids and peptides – more readily absorbed into the gastrointestinal tract. ProSource TF contains all essential and non-essential amino acids.
*Note: We always recommend flushing the patient’s feeding tube with water pre and post administration of ProSource TF.
