Neocate LCP is a hypoallergenic, amino acid-based infant formula designed for the dietary management of infants (0-12 months) with cows’ milk allergy, multiple food protein allergy and food-allergy-associated conditions: gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE), short bowel syndrome (SBS), malabsorption and other GI disorders.
Neocate LCP contains long chain polyunsaturated fatty acids DHA and ARA and nucleotides at a level comparable to that found in breast milk. Nucleotides and DHA/ARA are important nutrients naturally found in breast milk. DHA and ARA are important for healthy infant growth and development. Studies have shown a direct consumption of these key ingredients will promote your baby’s visual and brain development.
Neocate LCP does not contain milk or soy and has been formulated to meet the daily nutritional requirements of an infant. See label for nutrition information.
