    PurAmino™ Jr

    Nutritionally complete*, hypoallergenic amino acid-based medical food for children 1 year and up
    *Dietary reference intakes include a recommendation for fiber for >12 months of age.

    Indication

    PurAmino Jr is a 30 Cal/fl oz, iron-fortified, hypoallergenic, amino acidbased medical food for the dietary management of children with severe cow’s milk protein allergy, not effectively managed by an extensively hydrolyzed formula. PurAmino Jr is also indicated for the dietary management of children 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 Jr is designed to provide a major source of nutrition for children age 1 year and up. In cases of severe and multiple food allergies or intolerances, PurAmino Jr is sometimes continued as a milk substitute in the diet of children. This and similar supplemental use of PurAmino Jr in the diet make an important contribution in supporting the maintenance of adequate nutrition in such patients.

    When PurAmino Jr is used as a milk substitute, the total calcium content of the diet should be assessed.

    Extended use of PurAmino Jr (or other medical foods for children) is most appropriately monitored by physicians and nutritionists on a case-by-case basis.
