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), 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.
