Neocate Product Series – Duocal

Posted 5.8.12 | Christine Graham-Garo

Today, as we end our Neocate Product Series, we will take a look at Duocal, which is a supplement that can be used to meet extra nutritional needs.  Just as you saw in our previous series posts about Neocate Infant DHA ARA, Neocate Nutra, Neocate JuniorE028 Splash and Neocate Junior with Prebiotics we will be taking a look at the product description, preparation instructions and the nutrient/ingredient profile.

Super Soluble Duocal is a one-of-a-kind product.  It is a powdered, high calorie product that is ideal for medical conditions where extra calories are required for growth.  It contains carbohydrates and fats (no proteins, vitamins or minerals).  Duocal is not nutritionally complete.  It is to be added to foods or formulas in order to add extra calories into the diet.  Duocal mixes best with moist foods.  The best part of Duocal is that it does not change the flavor or the texture of the food item it is added to.  There are a large number of foods you can add Duocal to.  Look here for recipes ideas and for clever ways to use Duocal.  Also, Duocal is milk-protein free so would be appropriate for a child with cow milk allergy.

How to prepare Duocal

Measure the prescribed amount of Super Soluble Duocal.  Add powder to the required volume of liquid and/or soft food and stir continuously until powder has dissolved.  Unused foods mixed with Duocal should be refrigerated and used within 24 hours.  Shake or stir immediately before serving.

Store unopened can at room temperature.  Once opened, reseal can and store in a cool, dry place (not in refrigerator) and use within one month.
