  • When fed according to the Abbott Nutrition Support Protocols, provides adequate amounts of all nutrients.
  • Halal.
  • Gluten-free.
  • Lactose-free.
  • To meet the nutrient needs of the infant or child, infant formula, breast milk or additional food choices must be given to supply protein and leucine requirements. These may be added to the I-Valex-1 mixture or prepared separately as instructed. Depending on the specific needs of each patient, preparation will vary as prescribed by physician.

  • Not for IV use.
  • Never use a microwave oven to warm formula. Serious burns can result.

PREPARATION

  • Directions for Preparation and Use: Use Only As Directed by a Physician
    Your baby's health depends on carefully following these directions. Proper hygiene, handling and storage are important when preparing infant formula. Failure to follow these directions could result in severe harm. Ask your baby's doctor if you need to use cooled, boiled water for mixing and if you need to boil (sterilize) bottles, nipples and rings before use.
    • Wash your hands, surfaces and utensils.
    • Pour prescribed amount of water into a clean container.
    • Add prescribed amount of I-Valex-1 powder (and other ingredients if recommended).
    • Shake well for 10-15 seconds; if using a blender, mix no more than 5 seconds.
