Liquid Hope is the worlds first shelf stable organic whole foods feeding tube formula and oral meal replacement. Robin created Liquid Hope using the Functional Medicine/Food as Medicine model so each ingredient has been chosen for its potential to promote health and vitality and its ability to support the body’s natural immune system. When our bodies are given what they need... well let’s just say, food was our original medicine and Robin thought it was time to get back to our roots.

There are a few things we want to make sure you remember when using Liquid Hope as a feeding tube formula.
For new users: Be mindful, if someone has been on commercial formulas for a while, please switch over slowly. Our formula is real food (imagine that!)_, and it will take your digestive system a bit of time to re-adjust. We suggest replacing one meal per day with Liquid Hope until the transition is complete. If you don’t follow this transition plan, you may experience a bit of gas due to the high fiber content.
Liquid Hope has a 12-hour ambient room temperature hang time: Functional Formularies recently tested Liquid Hope for microbial activity and there was zero microbial activity after a 12 hour hang time test (conducted at room temperature). This is a 3-fold increase in the hang time that was last tested (4 hrs). The increase is simply a function of the company carrying out an extended duration microbial test and is not the result of any changes to the formula.
Shake well before opening.
Nutritionally complete meal replacement: Liquid Hope can be served as is.
Two-year shelf life: The unopened formula can be stored for up to two years at ambient temperatures. Do not store in a hot place.
If storing after being opened, place Liquid Hope in a covered container and hold refrigerated for up to 48 hours but no longer.
Types of tubes: The formula is pretty thin and does not require straining. It should have no problem flowing through gastrostomy tubes. If using gastrojejunostomy and jejunostomy systems, some dilution may be required, please check with your healthcare provider.
If you’re using a smaller tube and need the formula thinner, place the unopened pouch under running hot water for about three minutes which will thin considerably. Do not place pouch in microwave. Remember, if cool at all, even in an air-conditioned room, Liquid Hope will thicken and become more viscous since it is real food. Also, you may add a bit of liquid in order to achieve desired consistency. Robin mixed it with coconut water when using it for her dad because of the amazing properties of coconut water.
Not for parenteral intravenous feeding

"That anyone should need to write a book advising people to "eat food" could be taken as a measure of our alienation and confusion. Or we can choose to see it in a more positive light and count ourselves fortunate indeed that there is once again real food for us to eat."
