What is in Feeding Tube Formula?

Standard tube feeding formulas are designed to be nutritionally complete, and include all the necessary nutrients for staying healthy. Some are even comprised of real food blends.Formulas will usually provide the patient with the following important ingredients: Carbohydrates, healthy fats, protein, fiber, water, vitamins, and minerals.


Water is crucial because it allows a patient to stay hydrated. All formulas contain water. The chart below brings out how much water is in each size formula.


1.0 kcal/mL


1.2 kcal/mL


1.5 kcal/mL


2.0 kcal/mL



Carbs provide the body with energy. Therefore, many enteral formulas include corn syrup, corn maltodextrin (form of cornstarch), table sugar, and fructose. These carbs also add flavor to the formula.

Some formulas also include insoluble fiber, which aids in digestion.


Protein assists in immune function, and helps build and repair tissues. Formulas usually include soy protein isolate, Whey, and/or casein. Although casein and whey are both extracted from cow’s milk, they are not dairy, since the lactose has been taken out.


Healthy fats are important. They protect organs, are needed for blood clotting, and serve many other purposes in helping the body stay healthy. Plant oils are a source of fat in many formulas.

Vitamins and Minerals

Formulas usually contain the full selection of necessary vitamins and minerals. Often, vitamins are listed by chemical names. Common vitamins found in formulas include the following:

Vitamin Chemical Name

Vitamin E


Vitamin B3


Vitamin B6


Vitamin K


Vitamin B12


Can Glucerna Be Used for Tube Feeding?

Glucerna and Boost can be used for interim enteral feeding, but is not recommended for long-term use. Boost Compact should not be used for tube feeding at all.
