GERBER® Extensive HA® is a complete source of nutrition for babies with cow’s milk protein allergy (CMPA). GERBER® Extensive HA® is the first hypoallergenic infant formula of its kind made with 100% whey protein—the main protein in breastmilk. The 100% whey protein in Extensive HA® formula is extensively hydrolyzed and designed to help infants with CMPA.
Extensively hydrolyzed infant formulas go through a process called “hydrolysis” to break proteins down into very small pieces. It’s basically a form of “predigesting” these proteins in order to reduce the risk of an allergic reaction. For most infants and young children, this formula is effective and well tolerated.
Probiotics for immune support
GERBER® Extensive HA® gives your baby the added benefits of probiotics. B. lactis, which helps promote digestive health with a balanced microflora in your baby’s digestive system.
Special fats can help absorption
Sometimes CMPA may harm a baby’s digestive system in a way that makes it difficult to absorb fats. GERBER® Extensive HA® includes a special type of fat known as medium chain triglycerides (MCTs) to help promote fat absorption.
GERBER® Extensive HA® also contains levels of an omega-3 fatty acid called DHA that experts recommend for brain and eye development.
