The effect of hydrolysis was determined by a pancreatic enzyme preparation (Viokase) on a series of diets available for enteral nutrition. The increase in osmolality resulting from digestion by Viokase was measured. Small amounts produced very rapid increase in osmolality in almost all diets evaluated. Neither incubation at 37 degrees C nor the addition of… CONTINUE READING
