Jevity 1.5kcal is a 1.5kcal/ml tube feed with fibre, for people with, or at risk of developing, disease-related malnutrition. Jevity 1.5kcal contains a mix of fibre and FOS (fructo-oligosaccharides). Fibre and FOS have an important role in the diet by helping to support gastrointestinal function1-3.

Tube feeds are designed for people who cannot take in all of the calories and nutrients they need by mouth. Tube feeding usually starts in hospital, and involves delivering a nutritionally complete liquid feed directly into the stomach or small bowel via a narrow tube. Your healthcare professional will be able to advise you on which tube feed is right for you or your child.
