            What are the definitions of open-formula diet, closed-formula diet, fixed-formula diet, and constant nutrition diet?

Open-formula diets disclose the concentrations of all ingredients. Closed-formula diet – ingredients are listed, but the quantitative ingredients are not publicly available.
