Real Food Blends Tube Feeding Formula, Pouch FAQs
How do I use Real Food Blends meals?
Our meals are much thicker than formula and are intended to be bolus fed with a syringe. If you would like a thinner blend, you can always add additional liquid (milk, coconut water, etc.) Each pouch yields an 8-ounce serving (the measure on the front of the pouch is a weight measurement, not liquid. These are purees after all!) The meals are best served at room temperature or slightly warmed. (If the meal is too cold, it will thicken!) If you would like to warm the meal, pour it into a heat-safe container before you do so. Do not place the pouch directly in the microwave!
Why are the meals so thick?
These are meals, not a formula, so they are much thicker and intended to be bolus fed through a syringe. This thickness is intentional. Thicker meals tend to ‘sit better’ in a stomach than a 100% liquid meal – some find that thicker meals seem to help with reflux as well. (If you’re not tube-fed yourself, think back to when you’ve had a liquid meal before and how it just ‘sloshes around’ in your stomach. Not very satisfying, right?) The thickness also helps us pack the nutrition into fewer ounces. When developing these meals, we figured that one could always add more liquid if a thinner consistency was desired, but not vice versa! Pureed meals are a great option for those who have difficulty chewing or swallowing.
Are the meals gluten-free?
We have not certified the meals as Gluten free as they are produced in a facility that handles gluten ingredients. However, our meals do NOT contain any raw ingredients with gluten
Sweet potatoes, peaches, cooked turkey, water, olive oil, and green beans.
