Profect® protein beverage is indicated for a broad range of special medical needs. It is also used to support a healthy lifestyle. Profect is available in three sizes:
• 25 grams of protein in a ready-to-drink 2.9 fluid ounce vial
• 50 grams of protein in a ready-to-drink 3.4 fluid ounce vial
• 200 grams of protein in a 10 fluid ounce bottle
For health and exercise enthusiasts, Profect conveniently provides 25 grams of protein, zero carbohydrates (no sugar), and zero fat in a ready-to-drink vial weighing less than three fluid ounces.
For medical patients with special protein needs, Profect provides critical nutrition. Profect may be administered orally or via feeding tube. Orally, it can be consumed by itself as a ready-to-drink beverage. It may also be mixed with other foods, beverages (any temperature), or supplements.
Profect 25g - 8 flavors
Profect protein therapy is recommended for patients when high-density nutrition (i.e. maximum grams of protein per fluid ounce), low glycemic index, low allergen content, high bioavailability, or excellent palatability is a critical requirement.
Oftentimes, patients with special dietary requirements have difficulty consuming protein because they cannot tolerate the taste, the volume, the protein allergens, or the protein structure (eg. large or denatured protein molecules).
Profect addresses these challenges by providing 25 grams of Actinase® in a ready-to-drink form.
Profect is also available in a double-strength version, providing 50 grams of protein in the same, small vial. Profect version is intended to provide two 25 gram per servings for patients and other consumers who want the portability of two servings per vial, as well as the increased cost savings that Profect 50 offers. Since Profect 50 is more concentrated that Profect 25, it is also thicker.
Profect 50g - 8 flavors
Profect is also available in a standard ten ounce bottle, containing ten 20 gram servings of Profect. This product provides the highest concentration of Profect -- 20 grams of protein per fluid ounce -- and is intended for use by hospitals and other medical institutions. Consumers may also use Profect 200 as an economical alternative to the ready-to-drink vials. Profect 200 can be consumed at the full strength, or it can be mixed with virtually any other liquid such as water or fruit juice. Since Profect 200 is more concentrated that Profect 50, it is also thicker.
Profect 200g - 4 flavors
Actinase is the patent-pending protein formulation in all Profect products. Actinase is an all-natural protein compound with the following characteristics:
Actinase has a very neutral organoleptic profile (i.e. the characteristics related to the sense of taste and smell). Actinase also has a smooth texture. These features provide the foundation for the palatable flavors without the use of heavy flavorings or sweeteners.
To understand how and why Actinase is hypoallergenic, a brief explanation of hydrolization is required. Actinase undergoes a process called enzymatic hydrolysis. This process breaks protein molecules into smaller units called peptides. The average molecular weight of the peptides in Actinase is 1,400 daltons ("dalton" is the unit of measurement for atomic weight). The human body can readily digest and absorb peptides, which is why they are also used in infant formulas. A byproduct of the hydrolization process is that many of the allergens typically found in proteins are removed.
Actinase is easy to digest because the protein molecules are enzymatically hydrolyzed to form peptides (i.e. small protein molecules). Peptides are easier for the body to digest and assimilate.
The molecular structure of Actinase is extremely dense, making Profect the most concentrated protein beverage on the market. Profect provides more protein per ounce than any other beverage. This unique characteristic allows patients to consume ample amounts of protein in a very small fluid volume (eg. 25 grams of protein in 2.7 fluid ounces).
