Amino Acid-Based

Anyone who has ever searched for infant formula knows there is an overwhelming array of choices. But if your child has a food allergy, most of these infant formulas will not work, because milk and soy protein are used to make these formulas. If your child has Cow Milk Allergy, (CMA), a soy-based formula may not always manage the food allergy. Next, in line are the extensively hydrolyzed formulas. They break down whole proteins into fragments. These fragments are easier for children to digest, yet they can still potentially trigger allergic reactions.

Neocate comes in at this point. Neocate formula is made only with individual amino acids, the least allergenic and simplest source of protein. Amino acids are the building blocks of all proteins. As such, they are the easiest to digest and absorb, and the least likely to cause an allergic reaction.

Breast milk is the best milk for infants. It’s the first choice of the World Health Organization (WHO) and healthcare professionals around the world. If your child is allergic, breastfeeding could be challenging, and you may need support.
