We believe breast milk is the best food for infants. When in consultation with their healthcare professional, mothers and families find that optimal breastfeeding is not possible due to their infant’s medical condition, formulas for special medical purposes play a vital role in providing essential nutrients to infants. We have a global commitment to market breast-milk substitutes responsibly.

Althéra® | CMA Formula

What is Althéra?

 

SMA Althera® is is an extensively hydrolysed (eHF) hypoallergenic infant formula that provides first-line relief from the symptoms associated with mild-moderate cows’ milk protein allergy (CMA) and/or multiple food protein allergies. Althéra® is nutritionally complete* and contains lactose to support growth and development. With its very low allergenic profile and preferred taste over casein-based eHFs, it is designed to support increased acceptability and tolerance in the majority of babies with CMA. Available in a 450g resealable tin. Free from soy.

Important Notice:

Important notice:

Breastfeeding is best for babies. Althéra® must only be used under strict medical supervision and after full consideration of the feeding options available, including breastfeeding. 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 should be sought. 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.
