100% Whey Protein
Peptamen® is the ONLY brand to feature 100% whey protein, a high-quality protein that supports tissue repair and growth. Whey is also "fast-acting", meaning it is emptied quickly by the stomach and then absorbed more efficiently in the small intestine.
The whey protein in Peptamen® formulas is hydrolyzed, or broken down into smaller peptides, which are protein fragments that are easy to absorb and digest. Peptamen® formulas contain a higher percentage of these smaller peptides compared to other peptide-based formulas, so our formulas can make a real difference in delivering valuable nutrition to our GI-impaired patients.
MCTs (Medium Chain Triglycerides)
Fat is an essential macronutrient. The fat found in Peptamen® formulas is made up of MCT and LCT (long-chain triglycerides). MCTs are easily absorbed and can be used quickly as an energy source. No other formulas contain a higher ratio of MCT to LCT than Peptamen® formulas.
Experience and Evidence
Peptamen® is very well studied and trusted. It is the ONLY family of peptide-based formulas with greater than 35 years of successful experience and over 70 clinical studies supporting improved outcomes in our GI-impaired patients. Peptamen® is trusted, proven, and prescribed by healthcare professionals.
We passionately design and deliver the right nutrition
for those who need it most.
Peptamen® tube-feeding formulas are recommended for individuals who:
- Cannot tolerate formulas with intact or whole protein, also known as standard formulas
- Have digestive tract impairment, which may lead to diarrhea, vomiting or discomfort associated with tube feeding
- May have problems digesting or absorbing protein or fat
Peptamen® was created over 35 years ago from a simple concept: people with conditions that compromise their GI function need better, specialized nutrition in order to grow, thrive and enjoy life to their fullest potential.
Peptamen® formulas were therefore designed as unique, nutritionally complete, peptide-based liquid diets presented in an easily absorbable form. The launch of our “state of the art” blend of protein, carbohydrate, fat, vitamins and minerals and subsequent product improvement make Peptamen® formulas suitable for a long list of GI impairments and nutritional applications.
