Introducing Alimentum®

Alimentum is an extensively hydrolysed formula (eHF), which means that the cow’s milk protein you typically find in standard babies formula has been broken into small fragments.1 This means that Alimentum will not cause allergic reactions in most babies with cow's milk allergy (CMA).2,3

Alimentum is prescribed for babies with mild-to-moderate CMA and other conditions where an eHF is clinically indicated, and can be started from birth (no need to switch at 6 months).


What are the key benefits of Alimentum?

  • Shown to improve symptoms of CMA fast (majority of symptoms improved or resolved after 7 days)2
  • Nutritionally complete to meet the daily needs of babies from birth onwards
  • Contains biosynthetic 2’-FL*, a special carbohydrate that is naturally found in most mothers’ breast milk4
  • Can be prepared quickly and safely by mixing in >70°C water (according to HSE and WHO recommendations)5,6
  • Is recommended by parents and healthcare professionals2

97% of parents who gave their baby Alimentum said they were satisfied or very satisfied, and their baby seemed happy after feeding†2

*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.4
†A single-arm study where infants were consuming an extensively hydrolysed formula before switching to Alimentum with 2’-FL for 60 days. Within 30 days of consuming Alimentum with 2’-FL: 97% of parents said they were satisfied or very satisfied, and their baby seemed happy after feeding.2
