Alimentum by Similac, is the first and only extensively hydrolysed (EH) infant Food for Special Medical Purposes (iFSMP) in the UK containing synthesised 2’-FL*1. Alimentum has been specially formulated for the management of infants with mild to moderate cow’s milk allergy (CMA) and other conditions where an EH formula is indicated. For older infants and children, Alimentum can be fed from a cup or mixed with cereal or other solid foods, as advised by a healthcare professional.

With this new and improved formulation of Alimentum, you can:

  • Help support the immune needs of infants with CMA in the gut and beyond.†1-3
  • Provide the efficacy you expect and need‡4-7
  • Give infants a formula that is trusted by mums and healthcare professionals.6,8

Important notice:
Breastfeeding is best for babies, and is recommended for as long as possible during infancy. Alimentum is a Food for Special Medical Purposes and should be used under the supervision of a healthcare professional.


ORDER NOTICE: you can order a maximum of two tins of allergy formula.
