Peptamen Bariatric Formula provides 37% of calories from 100% whey protein, enzymatically hydrolyzed to produce peptides and support lean body mass, a low level of carbohydrates (30% of total calories), antioxidants (vitamins C, E, A, and selenium), and 4.3g/L of PREBIO1 prebiotic fiber. The lipid blend in Peptamen Bariatric Formula contains 50% medium-chain triglycerides (MCT) and a 1.8:1 n6:n3 ratio, shown to help modulate proinflammatory mediators in critically ill patients.
