Pro-Stat Profile, Complete Protein Supplement
New Pro-Stat Profile is formulated if you need extra protein and your dietary intake is limited in the essential amino acids. Pro-Stat Profile is Lactose and Gluten Free.
Pro-Stat Profile is a complete protein supplement providing the Institute of Medicine (IOM) recommended Essential Amino Acids profile1, and is an excellent source of high nitrogen, Conditionally-Essential and Non-Essential Amino Acids.

Nutrition Information: Click on the product label image at the top of the page to enlarge for detailed information.Product Features
- Pro-Stat is clinically proven to aid in improving pressure ulcer healing.
- Concentrated Liquid Protein with Enhanced Calories
- 10 g of Hydrolyzed Protein per 30 ml serving
- 101 Calories per 30 ml serving
- Pleasant Wild Cherry Flavor
- Lactose and Gluten Free
- Use orally or with tube feeding
Pro-Stat Profile provides a concentrated source of complete protein (10 g/30 ml) and energy (101 Kcal/30 ml), with the IOM 2005 essential amino acid pattern (PDCAAS =100%) as well as important conditionally essential and non-essential amino acids.
Most diets contain multiple protein sources and adequate cumulative amounts of the essential amino acids. Pro-Stat Profile provides fail-safe assurance in those instances when dietary intake of the essential amino acids is inconsistent, inadequate or difficult to determine.Indications for Use
- Pressure Ulcers
- Protein Energy Malnutrition
- Recent Weight Loss
- Poor Appetite
- Immune Dysfunction
- Fluid Restricted
- Bariatric Surgery.
Ounce for ounce, not all protein supplements are created equal. The purpose of protein supplementation is to provide sufficient amino acids to support tissue building and repair. The effectiveness of protein supplementation depends upon the amount of total protein intake and the amount of amino acids-peptides actually absorbed and utilized by the body. Intake and absorption are affected by digestibility, the concentration of nutrients per volume, ease of delivery, and quality of nutrients.
Pro-Stat Profile provides the highest amount of the essential amino acids per liquid ounce with a Protein Digestibility Corrected Amino Acid Score (PDCAAS) of 100 and a Net Protein Utilization (NPU) approximately twice that of meat or fish protein, (NPU measures the retention of absorbed nitrogen in order to evaluate protein digestibility and amino acid content.) The high NPU results both from Pro-Stat's amino acid profile, which is rich in essential and conditionally essential amino acids, and because it is hydrolyzed (predigested) into the elemental, absorbable component - amino acid-peptides.
Conditionally essential amino acids, such as Arginine, Glutamine, Glycine and Proline are also important for adult nutrition because of the body's inability to product them in the amounts needed for wound-healing and hypermetabolism caused by stress from serious illness or trauma. Arginine, Glutamine and Glycine in particular have been found to improve wound healing, enhance immune function and optimize gut mucosal repair. Pro-Stat Profile provides almost twice as much of these conditionally essential amino acids as a comparable amount of whole egg protein.Cautions, Warnings, and Instructions

The Food and Agriculture Organization of the World Health Organization (FAO/WHO) developed PDCAAS for the measurement of protein value in human nutrition. The method is based on comparison of the concentration of the first limiting indispensable amino acid (IAA) in the test protein with the concentration of that amino acid in a reference (scoring) pattern, which was updated by the Institute of Medicine (IOM) in 2005. This scoring pattern is derived from the IAA requirements of the preschool-age child. The chemical score obtained in this way is corrected for true fecal digestibility of the test protein. PDCAAS values higher than 100% are not accepted as such but are truncated to 100%.¹
Although the principle of the PDCAAS method has been widely accepted, questions have been raised in the scientific community about 1) the validity of the preschool-age child amino acid requirement values, 2) the validity of correction for fecal instead of ideal digestibility and 3) the truncation of PDCAAS values to 100%. Also, the scoring pattern does not include conditionally indispensable amino acids, which also contribute to the nutrition value of a protein.¹
The PDCAAS of any individual protein source is most meaningful when the protein being evaluated is the sole source of dietary protein. Because dietary intake generally includes multiple protein sources with varying amino acid patterns, an individual's protein requirements are affected by the other components of the diet as well as the overall level of dietary protein and energy.² Accurate evaluation of any individual diet should include the cumulative amounts of all amino acids consumed.
Pro-Stat Profile is a complete protein supplement providing the IOM 2005 IAA pattern (PDCAAS=100%) in addition to high-nitrogen conditionally indispensable and dispensable amino acids.
