This product is typically dispatched within 3-5 working days from date of order and is not suitable for our next day delivery service.
Fortisip Compact is a milkshake style supplement that is the highest in energy (per ml) of all the Fortisip Drinks, containing 2.4kcal/ml (300kcal/125ml bottle). Fortisip Compact can be used for the same medical reasons as Fortisip, the only difference is that Fortisip Compact is a smaller bottle (200ml and 125ml respectively), yet contains the same kcals (300kcals) and more vitamins and minerals than the Fortisip and so would be ideal for more severe cases of loss of weight.
What are oral nutritional supplements?
Oral nutritional supplements contain energy (calories), protein, vitamins and minerals. They are specially designed for people who may not be able to eat enough food to meet their body's daily needs for energy and nutrients because of illness. Most oral nutritional supplements are flavoured liquid drinks (such as fortisip drinks); they are sometimes called 'sip feeds' because people tend to sip them. Oral nutritional supplements also come as powders that are made up into drinks or are added to drinks or foods like tea, coffee, custard and cereal. There are also some dessert-style or soup style oral nutritional supplements. The idea is to have a range of tastes and textures so that everyone who needs them can find something they like.
Your dietitian, doctor or nurse will explain how to take your supplement to suit your needs or medical condition. Unless they advise you otherwise, generally people take it when they feel most like drinking or eating it. This may be between meals like a snack, so that it doesn't fill you up just before a meal, or it might be first thing in the morning or before you go to bed. The important thing is to try and eat as much of your meals as possible and use the supplement as a 'top-up'. Some people who cannot eat may be taking just oral nutritional supplements alone, they can provide all the essential nutrients you need each day. They are delicious when drunk warm or chilled straight from the fridge. Fruity flavours are best served chilled. The easy-to-handle bottle pours readily into a glass or you can drink it straight from the bottle using the straw provided.
