I am trying to decide if I should order some of the Nectar fruit protein powders for the clear liquids phase that I need to be on for one week post-op. The dietitian wasn't sure if these are allowed because she didn't know if they are see-through after mixed. If you use these, can you see through them after they are mixed? Were you allowed to use these for the clear liquids phase?
Thanks in advance!

I'd check with your surgeon, but mine said they were ok. He did tell me to avoid red colored drinks of any kind. If there was a complication, it would make it harder to decipher if I was dyeing things red inside.

They were on my clear liquid list of approved drinks. I got a few samples and ended up not using them as after surgery the taste was too strong.

Other options might be the clear protein2o drinks, the Premier Protein Clear, Isopure has a clear bottled drink, and if you have a Vitamin Shoppe near you, they have a drink called Isotech42, all are considered clear by most standards. Your tastes may change and you might not want a whole tub of something. These drinks you can buy single bottles of a few different flavors to try. I still found most of them too strong after surgery and ended up diluting them 50/50 with water.
