Now with 2’-FL*, a complex carbohydrate that is a major component of most mothers' breast milk,3 to help infants face all of life’s adventures.
Infants fed formula with 2’-FL* had significantly lower rates of respiratory infection, inflammation and eczema, compared with those fed formula without 2’-FL*†Learn more
Infants fed standard formula with 2’-FL*, compared with standard formula without 2’-FL*, have:†
*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
†Studies conducted in healthy-term infants fed standard Similac formula with 2’-FL (not Alimentum), compared with control formula without 2’-FL.

§Findings from a survey of 158 healthcare professionals’ patient record forms. The question was asked, on a scale of 1–5 "Based on your personal experience with real patient cases, to what extent are you satisfied that Alimentum achieved the main goals you were seeking to achieve?" 87% of healthcare professionals rated their satisfaction as 4 or 5 (5=extensively satisfied).
