Polycose®


Glucose Polymer Module
  • POLYCOSE® Glucose Polymer Module is a readily digestible carbohydrate intended for persons with increased energy needs or those who are unable to meet their caloric requirements with their normal diet.
  • For oral or tube feeding.
  • Use under medical supervision.

Features
  • Rapid absorption (peak glucose response in 30 minutes).
  • Reduced osmolality and lowered potential for osmotic diarrhea.
  • Approximate osmotic contribution to a solution that it is mixed into is 1.6 mOsm/g.
  • Powder displacement is 0.63 mL/g.
  • Low renal solute load—0.13 mOsm/g.
POLYCOSE is nutritionally incomplete and should not be used as the sole source of nutrition. POLYCOSE is for enteral use only and should be used as directed by a health care professional.

Precautions

  • Polycose is not a balanced diet and is not for use as a sole source of nutrition.
