- Target number of participants50
- InterventionsDuration of intervention: 7 - 14 days.
In most hospitalised patients it will be difficult to predict how long tube feeding will be needed at the moment feeding is started. Therefore subjects are eligible for inclusion if they are expected to be in need of tube nutrition for at least 7 days.
Participation will be ended before day 14 if patients are no longer in need of tube feeding or discharged from the hospital.

1. Intervention group: New tube feed composition;
2. Control group: Control tube feed composition.
- Primary outcomeGastrointestinal tolerance:
1. Defecation pattern;
2. Occurrence and intensity of gastrointestinal symptoms;
3. Number of days target amount of tube feed administration not reached due to signs of intolerance.
- Secondary outcomeStudy product intake.
- TimepointsScreening, Baseline, Day 1, Day 7, Day 14, Follow Up.
