ProtiMedic is a specially designed, highly-concentrated protein mixture to fulfil the protein needs of patients with several different diseases and conditions. It contains 20g protein in 40ml.
In patients who have an increased protein requirement but also a lower intake, it is crucial to have a product that is easy to use. ProtiMedic can be mixed with hot/cold meals and drinks. It can be used in a fluid restricted diet and it can be added to enteral tube feeding to enrich the protein content.
To provide the patient flexibility in using the protein, the product is available in a neutral flavour and in a tropical flavoured version. The neutral taste can be added diluted to tube feeding. Both flavours can be added to various hot/cold meals and drinks. It is recommended to use the neutral taste when the product is added to drinks and meals with a strong taste. The tropical flavour can be added to neutral flavoured drinks and foods, such as yogurt.
