Fortisip Compact is a milkshake style supplement that is the highest in energy (per ml) of all the Fortisip Drinks, containing 2.4kcal/ml (300kcal/125ml bottle). Fortisip Compact can be used for the same medical reasons as Fortisip, the only difference is that Fortisip Compact is a smaller bottle (200ml and 125ml respectively), yet contains the same kcals (300kcals) and more vitamins and minerals than the Fortisip and so would be ideal for more severe cases of loss of weight.
What are oral nutritional supplements?
Oral nutritional supplements contain energy (calories), protein, vitamins and minerals. They are specially designed for people who may not be able to eat enough food to meet their body’s daily needs for energy and nutrients because of illness. Most oral nutritional supplements are flavoured liquid drinks (such as fortisip drinks); they are sometimes called ‘sip feeds’ because people tend to sip them. Oral nutritional supplements also come as powders that are made up into drinks or are added to drinks or foods like tea, coffee, custard and cereal. There are also some dessert-style or soup style oral nutritional supplements. The idea is to have a range of tastes and textures so that everyone who needs them can find something they like.
