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

Pregestimil contains medium chain triglycerides in the form of MCT oil to help infants who can’t digest or absorb fat properly. MCTs are easily absorbed and provide rapidly available energy. In addition, the cow's milk proteins in Pregestimil have been broken into pieces (or hydrolysed) so that the immune system of most children with cow’s milk allergy no longer recognises them as harmful.

  • Suitable as part of a varied diet from 6 months onwards
  • Each tin of Pregestimil contains 400 g of formula
