SPECIALISED ENTERAL NUTRITION FOR ADULT PATIENTS WITH COMPROMISED OR IMPAIRED GASTROINTESTINAL FUNCTION

WHAT ARE PEPTAMEN® FORMULAS?

The Nestlé Peptamen® family of semi-elemental formulas offer complete nutritional support and improved feeding tolerance for adults with special nutritional requirements.

This includes patients with conditions such as:

  • Malabsorption
  • Diarrhoea, and feeding intolerance to standard enteral formulas
  • Delayed gastric emptying
  • Short-bowel syndrome
  • Inflammatory bowel disease

Enteral tube feeding intolerance* is estimated to affect 33–38% of adult patients, with clinical manifestations including nausea, vomiting or regurgitation, diarrhoea, abdominal pain or distention, or high residual gastric volumes.1–3


Peptamen®, Peptamen® AF, Peptamen® Vanilla and Peptamen® HN are all supported by clinical evidence. The Peptamen® range is the only family of 100% whey peptide formulas for the early years to adulthood.
