Preparation and directions for usage
The recommended dosage and timing of intake is dependent on the age, bodyweight and medical condition of the patient, and should be determined by a dietitian or clinician only. Paste the prescribed amount of powder with a small amount of water. Gradually stir in the remaining water until the required volume is achieved. Initially, a 1 to 7 dilution is recommended (i.e.. 100g Maxamum plus 700mls of water or one 50g sachet plus 350mls of water) with the concentration increasing to 1 to 5 (i.e.. 100g Maxamum plus 500mls water or one 50g sachet plus 250mls of water), with increasing tolerance. These dilutions are guidelines only. PKU Maxamum can be taken as a more concentrated drink or paste, however water or diluted drinks should also be taken to counteract high osmolality. Maxamum (Unflavoured) may be flavoured with a separate flavouring from the Nutricia range.
