  • Suggested intake
    - MSUD Maxamaid intake will vary depending on the age, bodyweight and medical condition of the child. Intake is adjusted to maintain normal growth and development.
    - 100g of MSUD Maxamaid provides 25g of protein equivalent. For accuracy, MSUD Maxamaid should be weighed on a gram scale.
  • Preparation and Administration
    - USE ONLY UNDER THE DIRECTION OF A PHYSICIAN OR DIETITIAN. MSUD Maxamaid must be consumed in conjunction with natural protein, fluid and other nutrients in quantities prescribed by a physician or dietitian to meet isoleucine, leucine, valine and general nutrition requirements.
    - MSUD Maxamaid is best served as a chilled drink with meals. Make a paste of the prescribed amount of powder with a small volume of water. Gradually add sufficient water to yield the prescribed volume.
    - It is recommended that MSUD Maxamaid be reconstituted at a 1 to 7 dilution (e.g. 100g of MSUD Maxamaid and 700ml of water) and advanced to a 1 to 5 dilution (e.g. 100g of MSUD Maxamaid and 500ml of water).
    - These dilutions are guidelines only. MSUD Maxamaid may be given in a more concentrated form i.e. drink or paste; water or diluted drinks should be offered at the same time.
    - Reconstituted drink mix should be stored in the refrigerator and used within 24 hours.
    Note-Must only be used under strict medical supervision. Not intended for use as the sole source of nutrition. Not recommended for infants under 1 year of age. Not for parenteral use. Not suitable for metabolic disorders other than MSUD or as a supplement for individuals who do not have MSUD.
  • Precautions:
    - This product must be supplemented with natural protein and other nutrients in medically prescribed quantities to supply the leucine, isoleucine, valine, and general nutrition requirements of the patient.
  • Storage:
    - Store unopened can at room temperature. Do not store at extreme temperatures.
    - Once opened, reseal can and store in a cool, dry place (not in refrigerator) and use within one month
