Ask your Healthcare Professional if Duocal is right for your child
Duocal®️ is carefully formulated to be added to foods and liquids without changing the flavour or texture. The powder has been developed to help with the dietary management of conditions in which a high-energy, low-fluid, low-electrolyte diet is required. These include protein and amino acid metabolism disorders, protein-restricted diets, modular diets, malabsorptive states, and catabolic states.
Duocal®️ is a high-energy product for children who need to get extra calories. It is made with a combination of carbohydrates and fat (without protein, vitamins or minerals added). Duocal®️ is appropriate for oral and tube feeding.

It is a specialized product that should be taken under the supervision of a healthcare professional. Always speak with a doctor before making any changes to your child’s diet.
