Hi I have heard the term pre-digested. I think this means like blended in the blender easier for the tummy to digest. I am considering going to this because my stomach is hurting bad. I usally have a glucerna (diabetic meal replacement) blended with a couple bananas any other ideas of smothie type drinks? I am overweight but I want to make sure that I maintain a decent calorie level for breastfeeding.

     Predigested?  Sounds like chewed up and spit out doesn't it?

I think I've only heard of such a product for animals. (Eww, like cud?)
I would think it would have to involve some enzymes or something, not just blended. And your colon doesn't really do the digestion part of processing food, so I'm not sure it would help UC. But I see you are having trouble with your stomach, maybe not your UC...

Maybe you should cut down the supplements, things that aren't actually prescribed? Vitamin formulas and other supplements can cause stomach upset.
