Introducing the Similac® Hypoallergenic Formula Range

The first and only hypoallergenic formulas in the UK to contain 2’-FL*†, a major component of most mothers’ breast milk,4 to help support the immune needs of infants with CMA and/or multiple food allergies.

About CMA Management

See the latest recommendations for diagnosing and managing CMA in primary care.

The Role of 2’-FL

Human milk oligosaccharides (HMOs) are the 3rd most abundant solid component of breast milk.5 Find out how 2’-FL supports the developing immune system.

Resources and Education

Abbott is committed to keeping healthcare professionals informed about the latest research and information on the management of CMA.

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 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
