PurAmino has important nutrients your baby may be missing out on due to their severe cow's milk allergy, multiple food allergies, or other gastrointestinal conditions.
Our PurAmino formula is a hypoallergenic, iron fortified, amino acid-based infant formula used for infants and toddlers with severe cow's milk protein allergy, and other food allergies. It’s also suitable for conditions such as protein maldigestion, malabsorption/chronic diarrhea, short bowel syndrome & eosinophilic esophagitis. It has DHA & ARA, important fatty acids that support brain and eye development for your baby. PurAmino can provide a sole source of nutrition for infants up to age 6 months and provide a major source of nutrition through 24 months of age, when indicated. In cases of severe and multiple food allergies or intolerances, PurAmino is sometimes continued as a milk substitute in the diet of children.
*World Health Organization recommended amount of DHA is 0.2% - 0.36% of total fatty acids. Similac = 0.15% Vs Enfamil = 0.32% of total fatty acids.
