Alfamino

What is Alfamino?

Alfamino is an infant formula with amino acids for the dietary management of moderate/complex cases of cows’ milk protein allergy (CMA). Alfamino can also be used in the dietary management of infants and children who experience no improvement on extensively hydrolysed infant formulas.
With its proprietary lipid blend, Alfamino is designed to support tolerance and absorption in the most challenging allergy conditions. Suitable from birth onwards, Alfamino has a neutral taste allowing for increased acceptability.

 

  • 100% free amino acids which is safe to use in all cases of CMA
  • Low osmolarity 300 mOsm/l which may help if malabsorption is present
  • 24.4% MCT decreasing the potential for fat malabsorption

Important Notice:

Important notice:

Breastfeeding is best for babies. You should always seek the advice of a doctor, midwife, health visitor, public health nurse, dietitian or pharmacist on the need for and proper method of use of infant milks and on all matters of infant feeding. Good maternal nutrition is important for the preparation and maintenance of breastfeeding. Introducing partial bottle-feeding may have a negative effect on breastfeeding and reversing a decision not to breastfeed is difficult. Social and financial implications should be considered when selecting a method of infant feeding. Infant milk should always be prepared and used as directed. Inappropriate foods or feeding methods, or improper use of infant formula, may present a health hazard.
