There are several types of infant formula that are free from common allergens, including:
Hydrolyzed protein formula: This type of formula is made with proteins that have been broken down, or hydrolyzed, into smaller pieces. The smaller protein pieces may be less likely to trigger an allergic reaction, making hydrolyzed protein formula a suitable option for babies with cow’s milk protein allergy or other food allergies.
Amino acid-based formula: This type of formula is made with amino acids, the building blocks of protein. Amino acid-based formula is suitable for babies with multiple food allergies or who have trouble tolerating hydrolyzed protein formula.
Soy-based formula: This type of formula is made with soy protein as the main source of protein. It may be a suitable option for babies who are allergic to cow’s milk protein.
It’s important to note that it’s always best to consult with a healthcare professional before making any changes to your baby’s diet.
If your baby is formula-fed, it’s also important to follow the instructions on the formula label and to prepare and store the formula properly to reduce the risk of foodborne illness.
