Why does my child need a specialty formula?
Healthcare professionals may recommend an amino acid formula such as AlfaminoTM, for the management of multiple food allergies (including the most common one being cow’s milk protein allergy) or for other medical conditions.
AlfaminoTM contains free amino acids, which are the building blocks of protein. This helps minimize the chance of an allergic reaction.
Differences between intact protein and amino acid formulas:
AlfaminoTM formula is manufactured under Nestlé’s high quality standards
AlfaminoTM formula has a unique fat blend containing medium chain triglycerides (MCT) to help children with fat malabsorption
AlfaminoTM formula is nutritionally complete and provides essential nutrients your little one needs to grow
AlfaminoTM formula is easy to digest and is lactose-free and gluten-free
