PEPTAMEN® Is Formulated to Maximize Nutrient Absorption
PEPTAMEN® is a special liquid food or tube feeding formula that provides nutrients you need, in forms that are easy for your body to use. PEPTAMEN® provides the three main components of food - protein, fat, carbohydrates - which you need to maintain or restore health.
