Jevity 1.2 Cal (formerly Jevity Plus) is a high-nitrogen, fiber-fortified liquid formula providing complete, balanced nutrition for patients who may benefit from a moderate increase in protein and caloric density. Jevity 1.2 Cal contains a patented blend of soluble and insoluble fiber and fructooligosaccharides (FOS) to help moderate bowel function. FOS are indigestible sugars that occur naturally in onions, barley, bananas, and other common foods. FOS are not digested by the gastrointestinal enzymes.5 These oligosaccharides remain intact through the small intestine and pass into the large intestine, where they are fermented by bifidobacteria and other microorganisms in the colon to lactate and the short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs) acetate, propionate, and butyrate
- For patients requiring 1200 or more calories per day
- For patients requiring acute-care tube feedings
- For patients requiring chronic tube feedings
- For patients sensitive to hyperosmolar tube feedings
- For patients intolerant to low-residue tube feedings
Jevity 1.2 Cal contains a unique patented blend of 75% insoluble and 25% soluble fibers, a proportion that represents the types of fiber found in a diet containing a wide variety of foods. The sources are oat fiber, soy fiber, gum arabic, and carboxymethylcellulose. This blend of fiber sources was selected for its water-absorbing ability, fermentability, contribution to stool bulking, and minimal contribution to product viscosity. The total dietary fiber content of Jevity 1.2 Cal is 12 g/L (2.85 g/8-fl-oz serving) or 10 g/1000 Cal, within the recommended range—10 to 13 g/1000 Cal—for daily fiber intake.
The blend of insoluble and soluble fibers in Jevity 1.2 Cal is an effective fiber source, as demonstrated in animal models, healthy subjects, and in the clinical setting. In studies comparing formulas containing either a fiber blend or soy polysaccharide, animals and healthy people who consumed the fiber blend produced stools of heavier weight and similar consistency. In the clinical setting, long-term care patients receiving formulas containing a lower level of the fiber blend (10 g total dietary fiber/1000 Cal) had stool weights and stool consistencies similar to those of patients receiving a higher intake of soy fiber (13.6 g total dietary fiber/1000 Cal)
Jevity 1.2 Cal provides 100% of the DVs for 24 key vitamins and minerals (except chloride) in 1200 Cal (1000 mL) or about 4.2 eight-fl-oz servings. Jevity 1.2 Cal is supplemented with the conditionally essential nutrients L-carnitine and taurine at levels within the range of typical daily intakes (150 mg/L). Jevity 1.2 Cal is fortified with beta-carotene (2.5 mg/L; 3300 IU/L), which makes up approximately 66% of the total vitamin A activity
