Ross POLYCOSE Powder is an easily digestible source of carbohydrate calories for use when additional calories are required. It mixes easily with regular foods and beverages to provide extra calories for persons with increased caloric needs or for those whose normal diet does not meet their needs. POLYCOSE Glucose Polymers Powder may be used indefinitely as an enteral carbohydrate supplement. Although POLYCOSE may serve temporarily as the sole energy source, it is not intended to be used as a sole-source nutritional product because it contains no protein, fat, or vitamins and very low levels of minerals.
