Can Functional Formularies products be used with enteral pumps and gravity drip bags?

Yes. Since our products are packed with dense nutrition and are high k/cal and high fiber, caregivers may need to deliver formula at room temperature, or they may need to “thin” the formula. If products are stored below room temperature, have patients bring formulas up to room temperature to allow for easier infusion. If there is a need to add water to the formula, use this rule of thumb as a starting point: add 10ml of water for every 60ml formula. Again, if adding water to the formula, you must re-blend it before administering.
