The role of protein in critical illness
Nutrison Protein Intense is the first and only whole protein tube feed with a high protein level that fully meets international critical care guidelines1-6. Nutrison Protein Intense is tailored to the diet of critically ill patients and/or patients with high protein needs:
- Whole protein: formulated to meet the latest international nutritional guidelines for critically ill patients with elevated protein needs1-6
- Unique P4 protein blend: aligned with the latest international nutritional guidelines on protein quality6 and amino acid requirements7
- Proven tolerance benefits: P4 is a very well tolerated whole protein blend developed to optimize protein intake8-14
- High quality: combination of 4 different protein sources with an amino acid pattern that complies with the WHO/FAO/UNU guidelines
The protein mixture P4 is of high quality and well-tolerated
- Proven Tolerance Benefits - P4 is a very well tolerated whole protein blend developed to optimize protein intake8-14
- High Quality - A combination of 4 different protein sources with an amino acid pattern that complies with the WHO/FAO/UNU guidelines7
- Fully matches Nutritional Guidelines and recommendations - P4 is a whole protein blend used as part of Nutrison Protein Intense to fully match current international nutritional guidelines for critically ill patients 1-4,6
Nutrison Protein Intense is scientifically proven to meet protein targets without overfeeding calories14
A study was carried out to compare a very high intact-protein (10 g/100 ml) formula with standard high protein enteral formula (6 g/100 ml) as first-line nutritional treatment for critically ill patients
The study found that protein intake according to guidelines is possible with high intact-protein enteral formula solution, without overfeeding risk.
A very high intact-protein enteral formula is suitable as first-line nutritional treatment for critically ill patients as it offers solution for adequate protein provision according to nutritional guidelines without overfeeding risk.
Nutrison Protein Intense: developed in line with all major international guidelines for starting nutritional treatment with whole protein products
