Althéra - CMPA Formula

What is Althéra?

Althéra is an extensively hydrolysed (eHF) and hypoallergenic infant formula that provides first-line relief from the symptoms associated with cows’ milk protein allergy (CMA), i.e., eczema, colic, vomiting, diarrhoea, constipation.  Althéra, contains lactose and is also nutritionally complete, therefore allowing for normal growth and helping a child’s development. Suitable from birth onwards, Althéra’s taste and palatability allow for increased acceptability and make it easier to use for the long-term dietary management of CMA.

 

Always discuss with a healthcare professional before making any changes to a child’s diet.

 

  • Contains lactose which significantly increases the absorption of calcium and improves palatability
  • Hypoallergenic for better tolerance - the most extensively hydrolysed formula in the UK
  • 100% extensively hydrolysed whey protein source facilitates faster gastric emptying and provides a more palatable option compared to casein based eHFs

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.
