Neocate Syneo is an amino acid-based, hypoallergenic formula with additional friendly bacteria, designed for infants with Cow’s Milk Allergy from birth. It is prescribed for the dietary management of Cow’s Milk Allergy (CMA), Multiple Food Protein Allergies (MFPA) and other conditions that require an Amino Acid-based Formula (AAF).
Neocate Syneo does not contain any cow’s milk protein, so eliminates the possibility of a reaction in babies allergic to this protein. It is manufactured in a cow’s milk-free environment and packaged in a protective atmosphere to provide a high quality product. Neocate Syneo can meet your baby’s complete nutritional requirements.
The friendly bacteria in Neocate Syneo are called “Bifidobacterium Breve M-16V (B. Breve M-16V)”. These bacteria do not contain any milk protein which makes them suitable for babies with Cow’s Milk Allergy (CMA). The friendly bacteria have been studied extensively by scientists and have been shown to be not only safe but also well tolerated by babies with CMA. The preparation instructions for Neocate Syneo are different from standard formula, so it is important to check the instructions on the label and follow them carefully. Neocate Syneo is prepared using boiled water which has been cooled down to room temperature - this is because boiling water can kill the friendly bacteria, and stop them from working.
