Far too sweet and too much saturated fat. Terrible!
I bought this after reading about it on the internet. Thinking I needed some extra vitamins I bought it yesterday, after 1 and a half doses ( couldn’t finish the second dose) I feel I have wasted my money. Too sweet and 9grams saturated fat each serve.
Too too sweet yuk
I t is far too sweet makes you feel like throwing up. I had a sample of the Vanilla it was not as sweet as this 840g tin.
Can I add water melon or other fruit something to make it more palatable, I have to take it twice a day and that going to be hard if not impossible, and it is not cheap.

Neutral formula too sweet.
The Neutral Hospital Formula is far too sweet.
I fail to see how the product is supposed to be able to be added to savoury dishes and sauces etc considering how sweet it is.

This is the best stuff, been using for prob 25 years, first got onto it in hospital & been taking it ever since.
I usually have 2 a day, I've never put on weight or lost weight on it. I have no issues with the taste of any of the flavours. Mixes well in a shaker with ice & water.
Heaps of energy & just feel better. There have been times I have stopped taking it for a few weeks & I can always tell, feeling tired, running on empty etc. This is good stuff & cheap ... stock up on special $20 a can, usually free post as well. If your feeling tired, run down etc, give this a try.
Anyone saying it's bad for you... they would not use this in hospitals... if it was.

Optimum works for me
Due to stress from life altering circumstance, I found myself just not ever feeling hungry, my BP was a risky high and depression also played a part.
My dr advised me to take Sustagen optimum as it can be used as a meal replacement and even tho' I eat very little, I no longer feel hungry/nauseous and have more energy.
There's only 8% sugars in the recommended dosage ( those saying that it's 50% are not right )
I would advise others with poor appetite to talk to their drs first to explore the possible reasons for not being able to enjoy their...

This stuff has been keeping me alive for the last few months
I use the hospital active coffee flavour as its the easiest to drink. . but it still starts to taste icky after a little while if you actually know what coffee tastes like so i add a little decaf coffee powder for taste. We use a protein shaker with a mixer ball to help mix this up and i like it best mixed with cold water and ice. Ive been struggling with some kind of sinus or throat infection which has messed with my appetite and is making it almost impossible to eat and this stuff has kept me alive. I was so weak initially that i could barely...walk but having this twice a day along with some V8 juice and powerade plus whatever real food that i can manage to get down is keeping me going so the doctors can figure out what is wrong. Ive got zero complaints. My hubby mixes them in the morning so i just have to grab them from the fridge and drink. Also, as a lupus sufferer with digestive issues. . . . ive had almost no digestive pain while on the sustagen and usually i have a lot.

Re Sustagen Hospital Vanilla.
I was under the impression that Sustagen Hospital Vanilla was not as noticeably sweet in the past as it is now. I know now that it is not my imagination and that it is a lot sweeter than it was 12 months ago when I was taking it as a dietary supplement for quite a while and it did accomplish what it was supposed to do.

Sustagen hospital strawberry
I have tried Pediasure, Sustagen Kids Vanilla. My kid likes Sustagen strawberry, she had growth & weight problems.
We started to use Sustagen hospital strawberry drink she put on height and weight.
Sustagen hospital is great, but it doesn't dissolve properly, even though I mix it with boiling water, before I add the milk. I end up with a pile of ''gunk'' at the bottom of my glass, that I have to wash down the sink.
