Hypoallergenic Formula Milk

Hypoallergenic Formula Milk

Whether or not a formula milk is hypoallergenic – i.e. will not cause symptoms of allergic reaction – is determined by the proteins contained in the formula, not the sugar or carbohydrate. Misconceptions are common about what is and what is not hypoallergenic. No formula is NON-allergenic; the specialty formulas just have degrees of lesser stimulation of the allergic response. According to the Food standards agency “If your baby is diagnosed with a cows’ milk allergy, your GP might prescribe hydrolysed milk formula for her. You shouldn’t give her partially hydrolysed formula or soya formula without consulting your GP, because babies with cows’ milk allergy might react to these types of formula.”

Whether a formula is hypoallergenic – that is, will not cause symptoms of allergic reaction – is determined by the protein in the formula, not the sugar (carbohydrate). Misconceptions abound about what is and is not hypoallergenic. No formula is NON-allergenic; the specialty formulas just have degrees of lesser stimulation of the allergic response.

The hypoallergenic formulas include

  • Alimentum®
  • Nutramigen®
  • Pregestamil®
  • and a variety of more esoteric formulations not generally available outside of hospital pharmacies.

Formulas that are not hypoallergenic include

  • Similac®
  • Enfamil®
  • Goodstart®
  • Isomil®
  • ProSoBee®

One thing parents should not do is try to diagnose their child’s maladies with regard to formula. Far more trouble is caused by uninformed formula switching than is cured. If you have a problem you think is related to your baby’s formula, for goodness sake seek competent medical help. This is because in cases of true milk protein allergy, the gut may become hypersensitive, and allergy will develop to whatever you feed. This can leave an infant unable to tolerate any commonly available or reasonably priced formula. Talk to your doctor first. Of course, you can ordinarily switch without problems between formulas in the same family, i.e. cow milk to cow milk (e.g. Enfamil® to Similac®) or soy base to soy base (e.g. Isomil® to ProSoBee®).

Nutramigen which is a hypoallergenic formula, most children with milk allergy are ok with Nutramigen but not all as this is a lactose free but cow’s milk based hypoallergenic formula. Neocate is also not likely to cause an allergic reaction.

Adverse food reactions and allergies
According to figures up to 15% of the population have reported having had adverse food reactions at some point in their lives. However many believe the true prevalence of food allergy is lower and seems to range from 1% to 4%( about 6% of the paediatric population, but reportedly occurs in as much as 25% of children with eczema or other common allergies).

types of foods cause allergic reactions in infants
Infants tend more commonly to develop allergies to Hen egg white, Cows milk protein, Wheat, Peanuts, Bony Fish, Citrus and even Soya protein.The actual cause of colic is not known. There are many theories. However there is some evidence that sensitivity to cow’s milk may sometimes play a part.

Soy formula milk
Soy formula, though, which uses soy protein in place of cow’s milk protein, is a perfectly safe alternative for full-term infants if your child is unable to digest lactose (milk sugar) or if he/she seems intolerant to cow’s milk formula and becomes colic, gassy, fussy, or vomits during feedings.
