Benefits of KetoCal

Whether you or your loved one are tube fed or eating by mouth, KetoCal can help simplify the ketogenic diet by cutting out meal preparations and diet calculations; it provides the same consistent ratio no matter how much you take in.

Depending on the individual’s needs, KetoCal can be used as the complete source of nutrition or supplemental.

Clinical studies have shown that using KetoCal once per day may help improve diet adherence and increases the fat content of the medical ketogenic diet.1 ,2

One clinical study also showed that consuming KetoCal once per day (versus no formula) may help increase the success rate of the modified Atkins diet.1

Always talk to your healthcare provider about using KetoCal in your medical ketogenic diet.

Fills Nutrition Gaps

With any specialty diet, getting the right amount of nutrition needed can be a challenge. While on the ketogenic diet, it is difficult to get sufficient vitamins and minerals from food alone.3

KetoCal products contain vitamins and minerals to help fill nutritional gaps while staying in ketosis. KetoCal can be used as a snack, meal, or sole source of nutrition. Products are available in powder and ready-to-drink formats and come in a 4:1, 3:1, or 2.5:1 ketogenic ratio.
