IMPORTANT NOTICE: Breastfeeding is best for infants and is recommended for as long as possible during infancy. Alimentum and EleCare are infant formulas for special medical purposes and should only be used under the recommendation or guidance of a healthcare professional.

*The International Milk Allergy in Primary Care (iMAP) guideline recommends breastfeeding as the first-line option in infants with CMA.15
The 2'-FL (2'-fucosyllactose) used in this formula is biosynthesised and structurally identical to the human milk oligosaccharide (HMO) 2'-FL, found in most mothers' breast milk.1
MIMS. December 2020.
§Studies conducted in healthy-term infants consuming standard Similac formula with 2’-FL (not Alimentum or EleCare), compared with control formula without 2’-FL.
Parent reports from a single-arm study, where all infants were consuming an extensively hydrolysed formula before being switched to Alimentum with 2’-FL for 60 days. After 7 days of switching to Alimentum with 2’-FL, the majority of parents reported that the following symptoms had improved or resolved: 84% of infants with constipation, 71% of infants with eczema, 100% of infants with vomiting.8

CMA: cow’s milk allergy; HMO: human milk oligosaccharide.
