Hypoallergenic amino acid—based formula.
Last Updated: Sunday, December 17, 2017 - 19:00
PurAmino is a 20 Cal/fl oz, iron-fortified, hypoallergenic, amino acid-based infant formula for the dietary management of infants with severe cow’s milk protein allergy, not effectively managed by an extensively hydrolyzed formula. PurAmino is also indicated for the dietary management of infants with multiple food protein allergies. It may also be suitable for conditions requiring an elemental diet such as protein maldigestion, malabsorption, short bowel syndrome and eosinophilic esophagitis.
Long-Term Usage: PurAmino is designed to provide a sole source of nutrition for infants up to age 6 months and provide a major source of nutrition through 24 months of age, when indicated. Normally, in feeding infants, gradual introduction of solid foods after 4–6 months of age is an important developmental as well as nutritional step. In cases of severe and multiple food allergies or intolerances, PurAmino is sometimes continued as a milk substitute in the diet of children. This and similar supplemental use of PurAmino in the diet beyond 24 months of age may make a significant contribution to maintenance of good nutrition in such patients.
When PurAmino is used as a milk substitute, the total calcium content of the diet should be assessed.
Extended use of PurAmino (or other infant formulas) as a sole source of diet is most appropriately monitored by physicians and nutritionists on a case-by-case basis.

The baby’s health depends on carefully following the instructions below. Use only as directed by a medical professional. Proper hygiene, preparation, dilution, use and storage are important when preparing infant formula. Powdered infant formulas are not sterile and should not be fed to premature infants or infants who might have immune problems unless directed and supervised by a doctor. Discuss with parents which formula is appropriate for the baby.
Discuss with parents whether they need to use cooled, boiled water for mixing and whether they need to boil clean utensils, bottles and nipples in water before use.
WARNING: Do not use a microwave oven to warm formula. Serious burns may result.
Refer to the product label for the most accurate information.
Failure to follow these instructions could result in severe harm. Once prepared, infant formula can spoil quickly. Either feed immediately or cover and store in refrigerator at 35–40°F (2–4°C) for no longer than 24 hours. Do not use prepared formula if it is unrefrigerated for more than a total of 2 hours. Do not freeze prepared formula. After feeding begins, use formula within 1 hour or discard.
Use the charts below for correct amounts of water and powder. Use scoop in can to measure powder. Store DRY scoop in it's original can.
For every 1 fl oz of water, add 1 unpacked level scoop of powder (4.5 g). Each scoop adds about 0.1 fl oz to the amount of prepared formula. For example, adding 3 unpacked level scoops of powder to 3 fl oz of water will make about 3.3 fl oz of formula.
