Product Information

ProSource NoCarb Liquid Protein acts to meet the increased protein needs associated with periods of metabolic stress or inadequate intake, allowing for maintenance or restoration of body protein stores.

Under normal conditions, intact or whole dietary proteins (long chains of amino acids known as polypeptides) are hydrolyzed by digestive enzymes. This enzymatic hydrolysis “digests” or breaks down whole proteins into smaller components of amino acids and peptides to facilitate absorption.

However, metabolic stress reduces digestive enzyme availability and activity. To determine a resident’s risk for protein malnutrition and skin failure, an assessment of protein status is performed as part of the baseline nutrition evaluation. A resident’s protein status indicates his or her ability to synthesize non-essential amino acids and to absorb and utilize essential amino acids. As protein status declines, the resident is at higher risk for the development of pressure injury, poor wound healing, and infection.

ProSource NoCarb Liquid Protein is a complete hydrolyzed protein that provides all the dispensable and indispensable amino acids required for protein building (transamination) in a concentrated, sugar-free form that requires fewer digestive enzymes for absorption than intact protein. ProSource NoCarb Liquid Protein is sugar free and low in phosphorous, potassium, and sodium, and complies with most dietary restrictions.

Indications: Typically used for, but not limited to, meeting the needs of the nutritionally at risk; clinically proven to help raise albumin levels in dialysis patients; ideal for diabetics; and the perfect no-carbohydrate supplement for gastric bypass.

I work in an LTAC facility where most patients have multiple problems—they’re diabetic, overweight, fluid restricted, and have some type of wound. It is pretty tough meeting their protein needs without excess calories and fluid. We start them out on the ZAC and once their wound has closed, we change them to the Orange Crème NoCarb. It is so nice to finally have an answer for these patients! Thank you.
