  • Neocate Syneo: The only AAF with pre- and probiotics

    Nutrition during the first months of life has a significant influence on the development and composition of the gut microbiota1.

    Research shows that allergic infants including those with Cow’s Milk Allergy (CMA) and Multiple Food Protein Allergies (MFPA) have an imbalance in the gut microbiota profile, known as ‘dysbiosis’1-3.

    Gut microbiota dysbiosis in early infancy may delay oral tolerance, which can play an important role in the development of immune related conditions such as food allergy and atopic dermatitis4-10.

  • Neocate LCP, the only AAF with over 35 years experience of managing CMA

    Neocate LCP is a hypoallergenic amino acid formula designed to meet the nutritional needs of infants who have CMA, MFPA or require an amino acid formula from birth.


    Neocate LCP can be used as a sole source of nutrition up to the age of 1 year. It can be used in combination with breast milk and/or diet during or after weaning. 

    Infants prescribed Neocate LCP have been shown to have fast and effective relief from symptoms

    • Within 3 days – significant improvement of eczema and other symptoms1
    • Within 14 days – increased weight and infants showing complete resolution of symptoms2

    Neocate LCP can resolve symptoms unresolved on an eHF*.3


    Up to 10% of infants with uncomplicated CMA and up to 40% of infants with more complex allergy may be intolerant to an eHF.3

    • AAF formulas were found to be effective where symptoms persisted with an eHF.

    Guidelines suggest that symptoms should resolve within 2-4 weeks on an eHF and if still persisting an AAF should be considered.4

    Neocate LCP supports growth vs an eHF


    Neocate LCP is the only Amino Acid Formula (AAF) that:

    • is suitable as a sole source of nutrition up to 12 months
    • contains LCPs in line with EFSA recommendations for the visual development of infants and in a 1:1 ratio6,7
