Must be used under medical supervision. For enteral use only.
The recommended feed dilution is 14.2% w/v (i.e. 14.2g KetoCal 4:1 Powder plus 86ml water to give a final volume of 100ml)*. For sip and tube feeding:
1. Measure the required amount of warm water into a container that seals with a screw top lid. KetoCal 4:1 Powder must be made up with hot water (45-50°C or 113-122°F) to fully dissolve.
2. Measure the temperature using a thermometer or mix freshly boiled water and cold tap water in a 1:1 ratio to achieve this temperature. Add the prescribed amount of KetoCal 4:1 Powder to the water.
3. Whisk or shake vigorously until the powder is completely dissolved. Remove the lid carefully.
4. Chill in a refrigerator if desired and use within 24 hours of preparation. Stir before use.
5. On standing, some settling of KetoCal 4:1 Powder may occur which is a normal feature of the product. This settling should not block an enteral tube, however it is recommended that the tube is flushed with water between each feed.
6. If given orally, best served chilled.
7. To ensure that this high fat feed is tolerated when first introducing a ketogenic diet, a less concentrated feed or lower feed volume may need to be provided initially.
*A more concentrated dilution may be medically prescribed based on individual requirements.
