High protein Gelatein 20 (sugar free) and Gelatein Plus (150 calories) are ideal for clear liquid diets and are used by thousands of acute care facilities across the globe.
“A diet of clear liquids maintains vital body fluids, salts, and minerals; and also gives some energy for patients when normal food intake must be interrupted. Clear liquids are easily absorbed by the body. They reduce stimulation of the digestive system, and leave no residue in the intestinal tract. This is why a clear liquid diet is often prescribed in preparation for surgery, and is generally the first diet given by mouth after surgery. Clear liquids are also given when a person has been without food by mouth (NPO) for a long period of time and is also used in preparation for medical tests such as colonoscopy, or certain x-rays. However, a clear liquid diet is not adequate in calories and nutrients and should not be used for more than five days unless high-protein gelatin or other low-residue supplements are added.”
