Since it got its start, Neocate has pioneered the industry by introducing a variety of new formula forms, flavors, products, and customer support options to meet the many needs of infants, toddlers, children, and adults. From offering the first-ever amino acid-based infant formula in the U.S. in 1995 to developing the first and only amino acid-based formula with both prebiotics and probiotics, and liquid ready-to-feed products, we’re committed to providing best-in-class products that are driven by science, guided by research, and dedicated to children.
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.
