What is Clear Liquid Diet for Endoscopy

Clear Liquid Diet for Endoscopy

A "clear liquid" means that you can see through it. It should not be dark colored (e.g. cola) and it should not have pulp (e.g. orange or grapefruit juice or any juice that is described as "with pulp" or with "bits of fruit").

You may not have any drinks that are red, blue, or purple. Solid food, milk and milk products are NOT allowed.

Clear liquids include:
* Strained fruit juices, without pulp - Apple, White Grape, Lemonade
* Water
* Clear broth or bouillon
* Coffee or tea - without milk or non-dairy creamer
* Gatorade - not red, blue, or purple colored
* Kool-aid or other fruit flavored drinks - not red, blue, or purple colored
