Preparation & Storage

Directions for Preparation and Use
Essential Amino Acid Mix must be consumed in conjunction with natural protein, fluid and other nutrients in quantities prescribed by a physician or dietitian to meet protein and general nutrient requirements.

The recommended intake of Essential Amino Acid Mix will vary depending on the age, bodyweight and medical condition of the individual. Intake should be adjusted to maintain normal growth and development. For accuracy, Essential Amino Acid Mix should be weighed on a gram scale. The daily intake of Essential Amino Acid Mix should be divided into equal portions and distributed throughout the day.

The recommended mixing concentration is 5% w/v (e.g. 5 g of powder to 100 mL of water). Make a paste of the required amount of powder with a small volume of chilled water or other liquids. Fill up to the desired final volume. For best results, consume immediately. Larger volumes of prepared drink should be refrigerated and used within 24 hours of preparation. Essential Amino Acid Mix may also be mixed fruit juices or other formulas. It may also be added to soft, moist foods, such as applesauce.
