The recommended intake should be determined by a clinician or a dietitian only and is dependent on the age, body weight and medical condition of the patient. The standard recommended feed concentration is 20% w/v (100g powder made up with water to a final volume of 500ml, 0.89kcal/ml). For osmotically sensitive patients, an initial dilution of 13.3% w/v (67g powder made up with water to a final volume of 500ml, 0.59kcal/ ml) is recommended. These dilutions are guidelines only. Elemental 028 Extra Powder can be taken as a more concentrated drink but additional water or diluted drinks must be taken immediately after. To achieve a 1kcal/ml drink, a 22.6% w/v concentration is required (100g powder made up with water to a final volume of 443ml).
If given orally, Elemental 028 Extra Powder is best given as a chilled drink. The unflavoured version may be flavoured with Nutricia Flavour Sachets, Modjul flavours or other appropriate flavourings.
Not suitable for infants under 1 year of age.
Store in a cool, dry place (5-25°C). Once opened, a sachet should be stored in an airtight container and used within two to three days.
