Aptamil Pepti 1 (from birth)

Aptamil Pepti 1 is a whey-based extensively hydrolysed formula for the dietary management of Cow’s Milk Allergy. Aptamil Pepti 1 is a nutritionally complete formula, suitable from birth, and can be used to replace cow’s milk in drinks and cooked dishes at the introduction of weaning.

  • The only extensively hydrolysed formula for infants to contain galacto- and fructo-oligosaccharides (GOS/FOS), which encourage the growth of friendly bacteria in the gut1-2 and have also been shown to reduce allergic manifestations over 5 years3.
  • The Aptamil Pepti range is the UK's most palatable EHF range4-5. Aptamil Pepti is whey-based and contains lactose for superior palatability, compared with a casein based hydrolysate6.
  • Contains long chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (LCPs), nucleotides and calcium to help meet the requirements of infants with cow’s milk allergy.
