Enfamil® 24

Milk-based Infant Formula for Term Infants

Last Updated: Friday, January 5, 2018

  • Description/Indication
    • Enfamil 24 is a 24 Cal/fl oz, milk-based, iron-fortified formula for full-term infants who require increased caloric density. Enfamil 24 has DHA in amounts clinically demonstrated to foster cognitive development through 5 years of age and has an 80:20 whey-to-casein ratio patterned after early breast milk. Enfamil 24 has the same trusted nutritional source as Enfamil PREMIUM® Newborn.

  • Product Features
      • DHA at the clinically proven amount of 0.32% of total fatty acids, the same amount as the worldwide breast milk average1,*, and double the amount found in the leading competitor’s product:
        • Clinically proven to support mental, visual and immune system development2-5,†
        • Clinically shown to improve long-term cognitive outcomes through 5 years of age6,†
        • Shown to improve respiratory health through the first 3 years of life when infants were fed through 12 months2,†
      • A dual prebiotic blend of GOS (galactooligosaccharides) and PDX (polydextrose) at 4 g/L is clinically proven to:
        • Support immune health by promoting the growth of beneficial bacteria (bifidobacteria and lactobacilli)7,8
        • Promote soft stools similar to those reported for breastfed infants9
      • 24 Cal/fl oz formulation
      • Easy-to-digest, 80:20 whey-to-casein protein blend patterned after early breast milk10,‡
      • 75 IU of vitamin D per 100 Cal
      • Kosher

      * Average amount of DHA in worldwide breast milk is 0.32% ± 0.22% (mean ± standard deviation of total fatty acids) based on an analysis of 65 studies of 2,474 women1. † Studies compared infants fed Enfamil that has DHA and ARA vs. discontinued Enfamil without DHA and ARA; studied before the addition of prebiotics ingredients. ‡ Based on whey:casein ratio 3-5 days after lactation begins.
