Features

  • Soluble - easily mixes into all liquids and moist foods
  • Lactose-free and gluten-free
  • Powder displacement: 0.84 mL/g
  • *Potential renal solute load: 0.07 mOsm/g
  • Osmotic contribution is 1.4 mOsm/g
*Potential renal solute load: 0.07 mOsm/g (PRSL = N/28 + Na + Cl + K = Pa)
 
Renal solute load (RSL) refers to all solutes of endogenous or dietary origin that require excretion by the kidneys.
*Potential renal solute load (PRSL) refers to solutes of dietary origin that would need to be excreted in the urine if none were diverted into synthesis of new tissue and none were lost through non-renal routes.
Where N is nitrogen, Na is sodium, Cl is chloride, K is potassium and Pa is available phosphorus, and the units are in millimoles (or milliosmoles), except for N, which is total (mmol) based on the assumption that the modal number of N atoms per molecule is 2. Pa is equal to total P except in soy-based diets, in which Pa is about two-thirds of total P.
