Similac Expert Care® Alimentum®

Similac Expert Care® Alimentum®


Hypoallergenic Infant Formula with Iron
  • A nutritionally complete, hypoallergenic formula for infants, including those with colic symptoms due to protein sensitivity. A supplemental beverage for children with severe food allergies, sensitivity to intact protein, protein maldigestion, or fat malabsorption.

Features
  • Hypoallergenic; contains a predigested protein to virtually eliminate allergic reactions in most babies who are allergic to cow’s milk protein.
  • Hydrolyzed casein supplemented with free amino acids for infants who are sensitive to or unable to digest intact protein.
  • Starts reducing colic symptoms due to protein sensitivity within 24 hours in most infants.*,1
  • DHA and ARA to help support brain and eye development.
  • A unique blend of carbohydrates with two different absorptive pathways to help maximize absorption and minimize risk of malabsorption.
  • Made with oils that have been shown to be well absorbed. Approximately 33% of the fat as medium chain triglycerides.
  • Ready To Feed formula is corn-free.
Warning: Powdered infant formulas are not sterile and should not be fed to premature infants or infants who might have immune problems unless directed and supervised by your baby's doctor.

Precautions

  • Never use a microwave oven to warm mixture. Serious burns can result.
* Based on a clinical study with Similac Expert Care Alimentum Ready to Feed without DHA and ARA in a small group of infants experiencing colic symptoms due to cow's milk protein sensitivity.
