Updated testing methodologies for detecting dietary fiber has revealed an increase in total dietary fiber content in food products. This study analyzed the fiber content of several enteral formulas, including one deemed “fiber free”, to showcase comparative fiber content across these two methods (AOAC 991.43, AOAC 2011.25).
This retrospective review assessed the prevalence of formula changes for adult patients receiving home EN therapy from a home infusion company. The conventional formula group had overall more formula switches and switches due to intolerance in comparison to the plant-based and blenderized formula groups.
This case study assessed tolerance and weight maintenance of an adult Cerebral Palsy (CP) patient with secondary dysphagia, G-tube dependence, and gastroparesis consuming a standard plant-based enteral formula (PBEF) at a single adult gastroenterology center.
This case study assessed tolerance, weight gain, and quality of life (QoL) in an adult Ulcerative Colitis (UC) patient status post renal transplant consuming a plant-based, fiber-containing diabetes specific enteral formula (PBDF) orally at a single adult gastroenterology center.
Adults with gastroparesis were given Kate Farms Peptide 1.5 to supplement their diet with an attempt to determine if improving protein deficit can improve patient symptoms. Weight, GCSI (gastroparesis cardinal symptom index) and PAGI-SYM were measured at baseline, week 4, and week 12.
This study investigated patient-reported outcomes of pediatric and adult users of plant-based enteral formulas containing intact or hydrolyzed pea protein. A total of 392 patients and caregivers completed the online survey.
The purpose of this study was to assess the outcomes of three pediatric Crohn’s disease patients in clinical remission who were started on pediatric peptide plant-based enteral nutrition (PPBEN) in conjunction with Crohn’s disease exclusion diet (CDED).
