Clinical Support for Similac® Alimentum®

Similac Alimentum is an extensively hydrolyzed casein formula backed by science with over 50 research studies. Other formulas use carbohydrates that utilize 1 absorptive pathway, which could lead to undigested carbohydrates, gas, and loose stool in infants with malabsorption. Similac Alimentum contains a unique dual-carbohydrate blend that utilizes 2 absorptive pathways to help maximize absorption and minimize the risk of malabsorption.1,2
