Preparation, Administration & Expiration Date
WARNING: Emeraid has been scientifically designed for extremely high digestibility. Avoid contamination. Handle product carefully. Keep dry. Use clean, dry scoop. Do not cross contaminate with scoops used with non-Emeraid foods. Contamination can cause harmful bacterial growth.
The 400 g (3.5 oz) pouch and 2 kg (4.4 lb) tub come with a red scoop that has both large (1 tablespoon) and small (1 teaspoon) ends. Use the smaller end of the scoop to prepare a relatively small volume of formula. To prepare larger volumes of Emeraid, fill the large end of the scoop with powder.
Measure level scoops, and do not pack the powder. Shake dry powder to facilitate mixing.
Mix the powder with hot water measuring 122°F (50°C).
Mix one part powder to two parts warm water.
Stir the mixture vigorously to avoid any hot spots until smooth.
Fill the syringe with formula. To minimize any risk of the tube plugging, do not load the feeding or gavage tube with formula until immediately before tube feeding.
When mixed as directed, this product will pass through a 18-gauge stainless steel feeding needle and 5-French red rubber catheters.
Feed your patient immediately whenever possible, and always within 30 minutes of food preparation. Keep the gavage tube and syringe in very warm water 103-105°F (39-41°C) until ready to feed.
Discard any leftover formula. Make formula fresh for each feeding.
Flush and clean feeding syringe.

Product Variant: EMERAIDC 100G
I ordered Emeraid carnivore as i am a bat carer. I look after injured bats that are weak and sometimes reluctant to chew mealworms. It is easy to mix up. It dissolves really easily. My bats seemed to like the taste. Ito comes in a resealable bag which is really useful as i only use small amounts at a time.
