...January is coming to a close (I can’t believe January is almost over!), so we will end our Vitamin Series with a run through of the vitamins we haven’t discussed yet. We have already covered Vitamin D, Calcium, and all of the B vitamins. (Calcium snuck its way into the Vitamin Series even though it is a mineral because it is very closely linked with Vitamin D). As you may recall, the B vitamins...

...When you or your child has food allergies, looking at food labels and ingredients is essential. Have you ever looked at an ingredient list of one of your favorite foods and been unsure about some of those “big” words, like cyanobalamin or pyridoxine?

...aim to work closely with the individual’s family and physician to help find a solution that meets the individual’s unique needs. In February 2013 we improved the levels of 11 vitamins and minerals, like vitamin D, in our Neocate® Junior line of products to provide better nutritional support.

Phlexy-Vits are a powdered micronutrient supplement containing vitamins, minerals and trace elements. They were...

...age ranges. This helps ensure that growing children who need amino acid-based nutrition get the right nutrients for their age, especially when formula is their only source (“sole sourc”) of nutrition. For instance, Neocate Syneo Infant and Neocate Splash products have different levels of vitamins and minerals to meet the different nutrition needs of infants versus toddlers and children.

For more information about ingredients check out these pages that discuss the fats, carbohydrates, and vitamins (vitamins K, C, E, A vitamin D and B vitamins) in Neocate. Another similarity between all of our Neocate products is that they do not contain soy oil. This has always been true for most of our Neocate products, but it is a recent change for our Neocate Infant DHA/ARA, starting in 2013. Finally,...

...I often get asked whether our Neocate® formulas have all the vitamins and minerals a child would need to thrive for all stages throughout their lives. The answer is yes; but I thought I should explain further what the term “nutritionally complete” really means. If a formula is considered nutritionally complete it can be used as a sole source of nutrition because it will provide all of the important carbohydrates, protein, fat, vitamins...

...point. I like to start by asking what the patient eats during a weekday versus a weekend day. I also like to include beverages. For children, a growth chart helps to assess weight and height over time. You can ask your primary care physician for a copy. A copy of all current medications, vitamins and supplements is useful to complete the nutrition picture. If you are able to bring pictures of the labels or the...
