Neocate® Infant DHA/ARA is a hypoallergenic, amino acid-based, nutritionally complete infant formula. It is indicated for the dietary management of cow’s milk allergy and other food-allergy-associated conditions. Nutricia has recently updated this formula. Some of the changes are as follows:

Soy oil removed: Soy oil was replaced with canola oil.

Optimized nutrient levels: For example, amounts of vitamin D as well as DHA and ARA were increased.

Decreased osmolality: Fewer particles in solution may improve gastrointestinal tolerance.

Increased calorie and can yield: Each 400-gram can now yields 1932 calories and 97 fluid ounces.

Updated mixing instructions: Caregivers will now add water first, then powder.

Altered scoop size and color: Caregivers should discard the old scoop to avoid mixing errors.
