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.

We have been using ProSource NoCarb Liquid Protein for over a year. With a large population of residents that must deal with serious physical and emotional challenges, we have tried a number of liquid and powdered proteins in the past with mixed results. We find that ProSource NoCarb, in the neutral flavor, is a great choice for us because it mixes with so many different things, from bean soup and yogurt to applesauce and bread stuffing. And there is no comparison when you look at ProSource versus what is offered by other companies. Our residents really like ProSource NoCarb Liquid Protein.
