Overview

Pregestimil

Pregestimil is an extensively hydrolysed, hypoallergenic formula for the dietary management of cow's milk allergy or soya protein allergy and/or fat maldigestion or malabsorption with symptoms such as protracted diarrhoea, gastrointestinal symptoms or failure to thrive. Pregestimil can be used as an infant’s only source of nutrition for the first 6 months of life. It can also be used to provide a source of nutrition from 6 months onwards as part of a varied diet.

Pregestimil is a food for special medical purposes and should only be used under the supervision of a healthcare professional. 

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. 

Nutramigen PURAMINO: 

  • Amino acid-based formula
  • 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 
  • Suitable as part of a varied diet from 6 months onwards
  • Each tin of Nutramigen PURAMINO contains 400 g of formula

Feed immediately after preparation or cover and store in a refrigerator at 2–4°C for no longer than a total of 24 hours. Do not freeze prepared formula and do not use if unrefrigerated for more than a total of 2 hours. Use formula that has been in contact with baby's mouth within 1 hour and do not refrigerate. Throw away prepared formula left in bottle and clean utensils. Do not heat feeds in a microwave.
