With all the recent talk about swallowing and "eating" of any form orally and the need to keep swallowing during treatment, I accellerated my experimentation with liquid nutrition so I am not going to be "eating" anything, only swallowing water and liquid nutrition. Personally, the Ensure type stuff is a bunch of crap if you look at the labels closely. As you are finding out by now I am a hard core DIY sort of personality and willing to take all the time to research until a proper solution is found.
The current formula I just started is as follows:
100% Whey Gold Standard (24g/0g,1g,120cal)
Serious Mass (24g/125g,2g,625cal)
Whole Milk 16oz (15.6g/22g/16g,292)
This formula packs a total of 64.6g of protein, 147g of carbo, 19.3g of fat, and a whopping 1037 calories.
And it tastes damn good. If taste buds freak then there are a number of other flavors to choose and also many flavor supplements to customize flavor to dial in something palatable.
All these products are powerized so all it takes is to scoop into a shaker cup with a wire ball and shake a way. My son also adds some ice chips so it tastes like a milkshake. Once the Vita-mix comes, I'll try various blenderized versions using ice and other frozen fruits such as strawberries and blueberries to give various alternative flavoring and texture. If cold does Adding nuts and seeds can also be used to alter the texture as desired.
Lastly, a bag of Animal vitamin pack rounds out the full compliment of needed stuff.
Here is the links to the nutritional contents, I did not ennumerate the many other supplemental vitmins and minerals in the core ingredients. They are listed in detail via the links.
