The Abbott Osmolite 1.5 Cal High Protein and Calorie Drink is a complete and balanced nutrition drink without fiber. It contains one and a half calories per milliliter of serving. The drink is ideal for people on long or short term tube feeding and can even be taken as an oral supplement. The drink is suitable for kosher, halal, gluten-free, and lactose intolerant diets. However, it should be strictly avoided by people with galactosemia. It should also not be used as a solution for an IV.
The Osmolite 1.5 Cal has a healthy blend of nutritious fat of high-oleic safflower, canola, and MCT oils. These oils have a very high content of omega-6 fatty acids, which support brain development, strengthen the immune system, and regulate blood pressure. The MCT composition of the drink is incredibly helpful for patients unable to absorb lipids properly. The protein blend helps repair lean body tissue and promote healthy weight gain in patients.
The drink provides users with a blend of nearly fifteen grams of protein, twelve grams of fats, and forty eight grams of carbohydrates in a single serving pack of two hundred and thirty seven milliliters. The nutrition composition of the Abbott Osmolite 1.5 Drink makes it ideal to be used as a sole-source of nutrition as well as a supplement.
In a serving of a thousand milliliters, the Osmolite High Protein Drink provides up to 24 essential vitamin and minerals which support the overall healthy functioning of the body. The drink treats conditions like malnutrition, elevated caloric and protein requirements, and low volume tolerance by delivering a high dose of nutrients in a small serving.
