Posted 5.1.12 | Nutrition Specialist

Today, as part of our Neocate Product Series, we will take a look at Neocate Junior with Prebiotics.  As you saw in our previous series posts about Neocate Infant DHA ARA, Neocate Nutra, Neocate Juniorand  E028 Splashwe will be taking a look at the product description, preparation instructions and the nutrient/ingredient profile.

Neocate Junior with Prebiotics is a nutritionally complete, powdered amino acid-based medical food for children over the age of one for the dietary management of cow milk allergy, multiple food protein intolerance(MFPI) and food-allergy-associated conditions such as gastroesophageal reflux disease(GERD), eosinophilic esophagitis(EoE), short bowel syndrome(SBS), malabsorption and other GI disorders.

Neocate Junior with Prebiotics contains prebiotic fiber to help promote digestive health and extra vitamins and minerals especially helpful for children with GI-related malabsorptive conditions.  Also, it is available in unflavored and vanilla, which happens to be the first and only flavored amino acid-based medical food with soluble prebiotic fiber!
