Objective: To evaluate enteral feeding formulas for diabetic patients. Materials: Data provided by Industry. Methods: Comparative reference values from LARN, composition of standard normoenergetic formulas, dietary guidelines for either healthy subjects or diabetic patients. Results: The formulas for diabetic patients had normal energy and protein content. Available carbohydrates were low in one diet while fructose is always present.
