Product exposure to heat and freezing temperatures
Functional Formularies Liquid Hope Peptide and Nourish Peptide formulas are designed to have a shelf-life of up to 2 years from the date they are cased based upon how the product is stored and handled over the time period. Under guidelines of our research laboratories, if they stored and handled properly at ambient temperatures of 60º to 70º degrees Fahrenheit the maximum shelf-life of 2 years is within the maximum time frame for use.
Is it OK for Liquid Hope Peptide and Nourish Peptide formulas to sit outside in the heat for short periods of time? Yes. Exposure to higher heats (75-100º+) for short periods of time will not negatively affect the nutritional values. The only time the nutritional values will begin to be affected is if the products are stored at high heat for extended periods of time (6-12+ months). If exposed to high heat for an extended period, the nutrient value may be decreased over time.
My Liquid Hope / Nourish Peptide was delivered and sat outside in freezing temperatures and is frozen. Is it OK to use? Yes. Freezing can be a very good way to preserve the nutritional value, texture and flavor of many foods. As long as the food was grown in a high-quality way (for example, organically grown) the overall nutrient retention in a frozen food will remain high. In other words, the vitamins and minerals will keep well when food is frozen.
If you do find that your Liquid Hope Peptide or Nourish Peptide has been frozen just store at ambient room temperature and it will thaw naturally. If you need a pouch right away, please thaw unopened pouch gently. If you find that your product has been frozen, the product may separate a bit. The product is still perfectly good to use, just shake thoroughly or reblend in a blender to re-emulsify.

How many ounces are in each pouch of Liquid Hope Peptide and Nourish Peptide?
By law, we are required to list the "ounces" and "grams," which are measures of weight, not measures of volume, on the food label. Because the formula is made from real food, its density can vary and, as such, so can the volume of the formula in each pouch. Rest assured, each pouch of Liquid Hope Peptide and Nourish Peptide contain 341 grams as measured on a gram scale.
This is a confusing subject for most at first. All nutritional information as stated on our website and packaging is correct, it is calculated and tested per pouch and the most accurate measure is 341 grams which is what our manufacturers use as gauge of measurement and what their scales are set to. Anything below is rejected.
The conversation of weight is complex one due to the fact that our product, per food labeling laws, has to show ounces on the label. However, our products are not fluid ounces as most people expect, due to the viscosity. A glass measuring cup or syringe with ounce measurements is designed to measure only fluid ounces. Our product, due to not being "fluid" or thin as water, will show less.
We have done our best to offer accurate ML measures as a courtesy knowing that RDs are used to working with this measuring system.
Why are there variables in ML from pouch to pouch?
When it comes to measuring solids and liquids, weight (gram) is generally considered as more accurate than volume (Ml). This is because the weight of a substance on Earth will remain constant even if its surrounding condition changes (e.g. if it gets hotter or colder). On the other hand, the amount of space (volume) occupied by a substance – especially if it is a liquid – can be affected by things like changes in temperature without the substance changing its form (i.e. whilst remaining a liquid still).
Does Insurance cover Liquid Hope Peptide and Nourish Peptide?
Speak to your Durable Medical Equipment provider to learn about your insurance coverage for Liquid Hope Peptide and Nourish Peptide formulas.
Are there any variations in consistency with real food product?
Our Peptide formulas undergo regular nutritional assessment and lab testing. However, as with all real food products, the nutrient levels may vary a bit due to growing season, soil, and weather conditions. If you have a specific medical condition that requires you to be exact with certain nutrient levels, please discuss the use of this product with your medical team.
