Types of Formula and Their Use
Modular Formulas

A modular formula is an incomplete liquid supplement that contains specific nutrients, usually a single macronutrient (carbohydrate, protein or fat).

Different modules can be combined to result in a nutritionally complete diet. Modular diets can be tailored to an individual's needs but are generally complex to design, and may fail to meet all of the patient's nutritional needs.
