Portagen®

Milk protein-based powder with medium-chain Triglycerides (MCT) for children and adults.

Last Updated: Thursday, December 21, 2017 - 19:00

Description/Indication

Portagen is a milk protein-based powder with medium-chain triglycerides (MCT) for children and adults with defects in the intraluminal hydrolysis of fat (decreased pancreatic lipase, decreased bile salts); defective mucosal fat absorption (decreased mucosal permeability, decreased absorptive surface); and/or defective lymphatic transport of fat (ie, intestinal lymphatic obstruction).

Portagen is not recommended for use as an infant formula.

Long-Term Usage: Portagen powder is not nutritionally complete. If used long term, supplementation of essential fatty acids and ultra-trace minerals should be considered.

Product Features:
