Nutritional evaluation of a blenderized diet in five major burn patients

Am J Surg. 1982 Dec;144(6):655-9. doi: 10.1016/0002-9610(82)90545-1.

Abstract

Five consecutively admitted major burn patients were successfully supported with a high calorie, high protein diet supplemented with a blenderized diet (formula) that was prepared in our hospital. The egg, rice, and milk base formula provided over 60 percent of the average daily caloric requirements essential to their recovery. It was effective in preventing significant weight loss and promoting wound healing and successful skin grafting. The formula is inexpensive, palatable, of high quality protein, and provides a complete feeding when administered daily in conjunction with vitamin and mineral supplements.
