Overview

Nutramigen PURAMINO

Nutramigen PURAMINO is an amino acid-based hypoallergenic formula for the dietary management of infants and children with severe cow’s milk allergy. Nutramigen PURAMINO can be used as an infant’s only source of nutrition from birth up to 6 months. It can also be used to provide a source of nutrition from 6 months onwards as part of a varied diet. Read advice and tips on using Nutramigen during weaning.

Nutramigen PURAMINO 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
