  • Lower carbohydrate content; Total Energy (TE) 32-39% including slowly digestible carbohydrate, isomaltulose, to help manage blood glucose response46
  • Inclusion of 100% soluble PHGG fiber 20-22g/L
  • High quality protein TE 18-20%
  • Higher Fat content, TE 39-45%, enriched in unsaturated fatty acids, especially monunsaturated fatty acids (MUFA)

Reduction in available carbohydrate content with simultaneous increase in the MUFA content has demonstrated positive outcome on lipid management and glucose control.
