Alfaré® is an extensively hydrolysed, clinically proven, hypoallergenic Food for Special Medical Purposes (FSMP). It is for the dietary management of multiple forms of food hypersensitivity with gastrointestinal (GI) disorders, including cow’s milk protein allergy (CMA), chronic diarrhoea and malabsorption. It is suitable from birth onwards.
The product is specifically designed to have an extremely low allergenic potential and an excellent profile to provide all the nutrients for optimal growth and development in intolerance, malabsorption, inflammation and mucosal damage. The exclusive whey protein content provides an amino acid profile similar to breast milk with a superior nutritional value, and facilitates tolerance and absorption due to faster gastric emptying.
Alfaré’s carbohydrate mixture includes easy-to-absorb, low osmolality components, and is free of lactose and sucrose, thereby ensuring easy digestion, even in infants with severe mucosal damage. The unique fat blend ensures optimal fat absorption and energy supply, even in cases of persistent diarrhoea.
Alfaré® also has an anti-inflammatory profile due to the addition of anti-inflammatory fatty acids. Many macro- and micronutrients included are on the higher side of those in regular infant formula ranges to allow for increased nutritional needs, help manage malnutrition, support growth recovery and aid tissue repair.
