Properties

Unlike extensively hydrolysed formulas, in which proteins are broken down into small chains, the proteins in Nutramigen PURAMINO consist of individual amino acids — the separate building blocks that form proteins. This means that there is no cow’s milk protein for your infant’s body to react to.

  • Suitable for the dietary management of infants and children with severe cow's milk allergy and multiple food allergies
  • Suitable as the only source of nutrition from birth up to 6 months
