There are many advantages to using liquid ProSource TF as a modular protein for tube feeding. TF is the only modular liquid protein made specifically for tube feed use. It is water thin and requires no mixing or diluting before administering thereby virtually eliminating any risk of clogging a feeding tube. It is allergen free, contains no lactose or gluten, and does not contain any artificial sweeteners or colors.
TF has a PDCAAS score of 100 because its indispensible amino acid profile exactly matches the amino acid profile specified by the Institute of Medicine for a complete protein. TF also has the lowest osmolality of any liquid protein. At 380 mOsm/kg water, TF is virtually isotonic so it will not promote osmotic diarrhea. Believe it or not, some liquid proteins that contain glycerin have osmolalities as high as 5,000 mOsm/ kg water.
An unrecognized benefit of using TF is that it makes administration very easy, reducing labor and risk of cross contamination of mixing powders and other liquid proteins that require dilution. Nurses that administer dozens of modular protein supplements to ICU patients a day really appreciate the ease of use and convenience of ProSource TF.
ProSource TF is supported clinically in the peer reviewed study Critical care: Meeting protein requirements without overfeeding energy published in February 2016 in Clinical Nutrition ESPEN.
