  • When should I use DietGels®?

    DietGel® products are a new soft diet formulation with  a full complement of carbohydrate, fat and protein, . It is fortified with a both AIN mineral and vitamin mix (with the exception of DietGel Recovery, which only contains mineral mix). They are a superior alternative to mash diets, that DietGel 76A can be used as the sole source of nutrition and hydration for long periods of time, reducing time and labor costs.

    Because the formula does not contain vitamins and has lower levels of protein than standard diets, it is not recommended as a sole source of nutrition for long periods of time. For a sole source of nutrition use DietGel76A. However, customers have used the product as a sole source of nutrition for up to 3 months with no issues. Please consult with your nutritionist for long term use.

  • What is the best way to store DietGel products?

    Unopened DietGel can be stored at room temperature and does not require special handling. Shelf life for unopened DietGel is 18 months.

    Once opened (provided the gel has not been contaminated) ClearH2O products can be stored either at room temperature or at 4°C in a sealed bag/container to prevent the product from drying out for approximately 2 weeks

  • Why does DietGel sometimes have white or brown specs?

    Non-soluble ingredients are sometimes visible in DietGel, showing up as white to brown specs or clumps. The non-soluble ingredients do not affect the nutritional integrity of the product, making it 100% safe to use for your research animal.

  • Why does the color of DietGel vary from case to case?

    Color variation occurs during our sterilization process. When DietGel products are produced the color is a milky white. The product is then sterilized. The irradiation process changes the product color from a milky white to a caramel color. Product position within the sterilization chamber results in color variation. All of the product is 100% sterile and safe to use.
