Neocate LCP, the UK's No.1 AAF1

Neocate LCP is a hypoallergenic amino acid formula (AAF) designed to meet the nutritional needs of infants who have Cow’s Milk Allergy (CMA), Multiple Food Protein Allergies (MFPA) or require an AAF from birth.

Fast and effective Cow's Milk Allergy symptom resolution in 3-142,3 days

Within 3 days on Neocate LCP, studies showed significant improvement of eczema and disappearance of other symptoms (e.g. vomiting, diarrhoea)2

Within 14 days on Neocate LCP, studies showed resolution of all gastrointestinal symptoms. 100% of infants gained weight whilst receiving the AAF3.

Over 35 years of studies and research support Neocate LCP


Neocate LCP is the only AAF with over 35 years clinical experience and is the most researched formula in the UK market1.

More publications (>95) support the use of Neocate LCP than any other hypoallergenic amino acid-based product1.

Neocate LCP can resolve symptoms that persist on an extensively hydrolysed formula (EHF)4

Up to 10% of infants with uncomplicated CMA and up to 40% of infants with more complex allergy may not tolerate an EHF.4 Guidelines suggest that symptoms should resolve within 2-4 weeks on an EHF in most infants, however, where symptoms persist on an EHF, or in formula fed infants with severe CMA, an AAF should be considered.5

What is the difference between Neocate LCP and Neocate Syneo?

Neocate LCP does not contain the live beneficial bacteria Bifidobacterium breve M-16V. This means Neocate LCP can be used in patients where an AAF containing live bacteria would be contraindicated.
Neocate Syneo is the only amino acid-based formula to contain a synbiotic blend of both prebiotics and probiotics*.

Product can be provided to patients upon the request of a Healthcare Professional. They are intended for the purpose of professional evaluation only.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Breastfeeding is best. Neocate Syneo and Neocate LCP are foods for special medical purposes for the dietary management of Cow’s Milk Allergy, Multiple Food Protein Allergies and other conditions where an amino acid-based formula is recommended. They should only be used under medical supervision, after full consideration of the feeding options available including breastfeeding. Suitable for use as the sole source of nutrition for infants under one year of age. Refer to label for details.
