Alimentum by Similac

Alimentum by Similac is a powdered infant formula for the management of cow's milk allergy or other conditions where an extensively hydrolysed (EH) infant formula has been recommended by a healthcare professional. It is the first 
extensively hydrolysed (EH) infant Food for Special Medical Purposes (iFSMP) in the UK containing synthesised 2’-FL (2’-fucosyllactose) human milk oligosaccharide (HMO) not sourced from human milk. HMOs are a diverse group of bioactive, non-digestible carbohydrates and the third most abundant solid component of breast milk. Breast milk contains many distinct HMOs, which have a positive effect on gut microbiota and play an important role systemically in supporting the developing immune system.

Alimentum by Similac is suitable from birth and as a sole source of nutrition. For older infants and for children, it can be fed from a cup or mixed with cereal or other solid foods, as advised by a healthcare professional.

Alimentum by Similac is clinically lactose free and gluten free. It is a Food for Special Medical Purposes and should be used under the supervision of a healthcare professional.


Thoroughly wash and rinse all equipment to be used in preparing the feed. Sterilise all utensils according to manufacturers' instructions or boil for 10 minutes.
  • Boil fresh tap water (not bottled water) and allow to cool for no more than 30 minutes. Do not use artificially softened water or repeatedly boiled water.
  • Wash your hands and clean the surface you are going to use.
  • Pour the correct amount of warm, previously boiled water into the sterilised feeding bottle.
  • Fill the scoop with Alimentum powder, levelling with the back of a clean, dry, knife. Do not pack down in scoop.
  • Add one scoop of Alimentum to each 30 ml of water. Only use the scoop provided. A level scoop contains 4.2 g powder.
  • Place lid on bottle and shake gently until completely dissolved.
  • Fit a sterilised teat on bottle and test the temperature (drops of formula should feel lukewarm on the inside of your wrist). If necessary, add cap and cool by holding under cold running water.
  • Discard prepared formula left in the bottle or cup within one hour

  • Store unopened at room temperature.
  • Opened tins should be resealed using the lid provided and stored in a cool, dry place (not the refrigerator).
  • Use within 3 weeks of opening.
  • It is recommended that each feed is prepared as required.
  • If storage is necessary, the feed should be covered and cooled quickly under cold running water. Prepared feeds should be kept in a refrigerator at 2-4°C (35-40°F) and used within 24 hours. Feeds should be stored at the back of the refrigerator, not in the door.
  • Breast feeding is best for babies. Professional advice should be followed on the need for infant formulas and how they should be used (e.g. volume and frequency of feeds).
  • Whilst they are made under hygienic conditions, powdered infant formulas are not sterile. Proper hygiene, preparation, use and storage are important when preparing infant formula. Failure to follow the preparation instructions could make the baby ill.
  • Carers should not make any additions to the feed without consulting their pharmacist or dietitian.
  • Babies should never be left alone at feeding times.
  • Never use a microwave to prepare or warm formula. Serious burns can result.
  • Good dental hygiene is important for babies and toddlers. Do not use a feeding bottle as a comforter and move baby to a trainer cup from 6 months if possible.
