The molecular weight profile of extensively hydrolysed formulas (eHFs) is an important characteristic in determining their potential residual allergenic activity.1
Nutramigen LGG 1 & 2 are among the most extensively hydrolysed formulas available, therefore they have one of the lowest allergenic potentials.2,3
The majority of the protein in Nutramigen is hydrolysed to amino acids and short peptide chains, with 95% of protein <1000 Da molecular weight3
Over 70 clinical studies and 70 years’ experience show that the low allergenicity of Nutramigen translates into good efficacy in managing cow’s milk allergy.
