Protica Nutritional Research - PediaGro Balanced Nutrition Blue Raspberry - 2.9 oz. (86 ml)

Protica Nutritional Research PediaGro Blue Raspberry Balanced Nutrition is the first capsulized food (dense liquid nutrition) for children. Each vial of Pediagro provides a precise balance of protein, fiber, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals, as well as a full serving of fruit, for optimum nutrition. Pediagro ready-to-drink nutritional supplement for kids is indicated for a broad range of special medical needs. It is also used to support a healthy lifestyle. Pediagro conveniently provides young bodies with complete nutrition:

  • 10 grams of protein
  • 10 grams of low-glycemic carbohydrates
  • Zero fat
  • 80 calories
  • 27 vitamins and minerals

For medical patients with special protein needs, Pediagro provides critical nutrition. Pediagro may be administered orally or via feeding tube. Orally, it can be consumed by itself as a ready-to-drink beverage. It may also be mixed with other foods, beverages (any temperature), or supplements. Pediagro nutritional therapy is recommended for young patients when high-density nutrition (i.e. maximum grams of protein per fluid ounce), moderate caloric intake, low glycemic index, low allergen content, high bioavailability, or excellent palatability is a critical requirement. Oftentimes, young patients with special dietary requirements have difficulty consuming protein because they cannot tolerate the taste, the volume, the protein allergens, or the protein structure (eg. large or denatured protein molecules). Pediagro addresses these challenges by providing 25 grams of Actinase in a ready-to-drink form.

Actinase is an all-natural protein compound with the following characteristics:

  • Palatable
    Actinase has a very neutral organoleptic profile (i.e. the characteristics related to the sense of taste and smell). Actinase also has a smooth texture. These features provide the foundation for the palatable flavors without the use of heavy flavorings or sweeteners.
  • Hypoallergenic
    To understand how and why Actinase is hypoallergenic, a brief explanation of hydrolization is required. Actinase undergoes a process called enzymatic hydrolysis. This process breaks protein molecules into smaller units called peptides. The average molecular weight of the peptides in Actinase is 1,400 daltons ("dalton" is the unit of measurement for atomic weight). The human body can readily digest and absorb peptides, which is why they are also used in infant formulas. A byproduct of the hydrolization process is that many of the allergens typically found in proteins are removed.
  • Highly Bioavailable
    Actinase is easy to digest because the protein molecules are enzymatically hydrolyzed to form peptides (i.e. small protein molecules). Peptides are easier for the body to digest and assimilate.
  • Concentrated
    The molecular structure of Actinase is extremely dense, making Pediagro the most concentrated protein beverage for children on the market. Pediagro provides more protein per ounce than any other children's beverage. This unique characteristic allows young patients to consume ample amounts of protein in a very small fluid volume (eg. 10 grams of protein in 2.9 fluid ounces).

What is Pediagro?
Pediagro is a new, ready-to-drink beverage for toddlers and young children that comes in a fun, portable 3-oz vial. Pediagro provides young bodies with complete nutrition:

  • 10 grams of protein
  • 10 grams of low-glycemic carbohydrates
  • zero fat
  • 80 calories
  • 27 vitamins and minerals

Pediagro is available in several kid-friendly flavors:

  • grape
  • fruit punch
  • blue raspberry
  • orange
  • apple
  • and more on the way

Pediagro is an important component to your child's overall nutrition:

  • As a dietary supplement - Pediagro fortifies your child's body with macronutrients (protein and carbohydrates) and micronutrients (vitamins and minerals).
  • As a snack replacement - Pediagro satisfies your child's appetite while providing essential nutrients and low calories.
  • As a source of sustained energy - Pediagro's low-glycemic carbohydrates are burned slowly by the body. Protein is also burned slowly. Together, they provide a time-released energy pattern to give your child sustained energy for sports and play.
  • As a micro-rehydration resource - Pediagro treats or prevents dehydration caused by vomiting or diarrhea. It may also be used for other conditions as determined by your doctor.

Capsulized Foods
Once considered the stuff of science fiction movies, capsulized foods like Pediagro are now reality. Pediagro in particular is fast becoming a way of life for on the go parents - parents who want to make absolutely sure their children are getting the nutrients they need for optimum growth and development. Capsulized foods are positively changing the way we eat. They are:

  • Convenient. Preparing complete, nutritious meals requires a luxury of time that many busy people and families simply do not have.
  • Healthful. Unlike many convenience foods that are highly processed and full of artificial ingredients.
  • Great-tasting. Unlike traditional liquid supplements, capsulized foods actually taste good. Pediagro, in particular, was developed with the understanding that it must consistently taste good to its very young consumers.
  • Portable. A traditional full-course meal might provide all the nutritional benefits of Pediagro, but you can't take it with you!
  • Simple. A nutritionally sound resource like Pediagro takes all the guesswork out of finding the right combination of foods to insure your child is getting all the nutrients he requires.
  • Nutrient-dense. A capsulized food like Pediagro contains the nutritional value of whole foods rich in nutrients, but without the 'artificiality' found in processed foods.

Additional benefits:

  • Capsulized foods provide real eating solutions. Sometimes called "compact liquid foods," capsu­lized foods are extremely portable, require no preparation time at all, and travel easily due to their small, durable, and lightweight contain­ers.
  • Capsulized foods are liquefied, which allows them to be quickly consumed. This is a priority for families who simply do not have time to prepare and then sit through a traditional meal.
  • Capsulized foods provide the highest nutritional value per fluid ounce of any food product on the market.
  • Capsulized foods such as Pediagro provide a complete macronutrient and micro­nutrient-enriched meal in only a few liquid ounces. Toddlers and young children go from hungry to satiated - and from undernourished to nourished - in less than five seconds.

The defining target market for nutritional supplements is no longer elite athletes, but the millions of everyday people, including children, who have been ex­posed, some since birth, to sugary cereals, fast foods, potato chips, candy bars, and caffeinated soft drinks. In today's world, consumers are demanding healthy nutrition and great taste in a convenient package, and capsulized foods de­liver.

    I recommend this product!
    Kids didn't enjoy the taste so I drink these, they are just as good as the adult ones if not better. There's less fat and calories in these ones but also less protein and fibre but still a good amount.
