Alfamino® Junior is a hypoallergenic, amino-acid based powder formula for children 1+ years of age with multiple food allergies and malabsorptive conditions. This nutritionally-complete formula provides essential nutrients your little one needs to grow.
Alfamino® Infant is manufactured under Nestlé’s high quality standards. Alfamino® Junior has a unique fat blend containing medium chain triglycerides (MCT) to help children with fat malabsorption. Alfamino® hypoallergenic amino acid-based formulas with unique lipid blends are designed to:
- Minimize the chance of further allergic reactions in a child with Cows' Milk Protein Allergy
- Meet nutritional requirements while managing EoE with an elemental diet
- Provide nutritional support to infants and children with SBS when an amino acid-based formula may be appropriate
- Provide a formula with MCT that is efficiently absorbed to provide a more readily available energy source, especially during times of gastrointestinal compromise
- Promote adequate growth in healthy infants
- Meet the AAP criteria for hypoallergenicity

Alfamino Infant is formulated to meet the macro- and micronutrient requirements to support optimal growth and nutrition of healthy, full-term infants. Premature neonates, including medically compromised premature neonates, have unique nutrient requirements separate from healthy full-term infants and should be evaluated by a qualified healthcare professional. The use of this product in a premature infant is not recommended. The suitability of any formula, including supplementation with modulars, should be addressed by a qualified healthcare professional familiar with the case history of the patient. As with any powdered formula product, use with immune-compromised infants & children is not recommended.
*MCTs do not require traditional fat metabolism and, are therefore more easily absorbed directly into the enterocyte and are transported through the portal vein to the liver. As a result, MCTs are absorbed more rapidly than long chain triglycerides (Bach et al, 1982). Also, MCT oils are valuable in a number of clinical situations because they are digested quickly and less likely to be affected by intestinal factors that inhibit fat absorption (Krause, 2012).
