ROCKVILLE, Md., Sept. 12, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Nutricia North America is launching Neocate® Splash in the USA, the first and only hypoallergenic amino acid-based ready-to-feed formula that is designed to help meet the complete nutritional requirements of food allergic children over the age of one.

Neocate Splash comes in 4 great-tasting flavors offering unmatched flavor variety to individuals on an elemental or elimination diet. Neocate Splash offers flexibility as it can be consumed orally or given through a feeding tube. The new packaging travels well and is ideal for use in out-of-home settings such as daycare and schools. Neocate Splash is a sterile liquid and does not require mixing. This helps reduce the risk of mixing errors and contamination, while also saving time for caregivers.

"We have heard for many years from patients, parents and caregivers who use hypoallergenic formula how challenging everyday life can be. It's really gratifying to be able to offer a ready-to-feed hypoallergenic formula that can be easily carried in a lunch box and used on the go. Our new Neocate Splash can help patients to live their lives more freely," said Robert Schnurr, the regional Vice President Americas & CEO Nutricia North America at Danone Medical Nutrition

Neocate Splash is indicated for the dietary management of individuals with cow milk allergy, multiple food allergies, eosinophilic esophagitis, food protein-induced enterocolitis syndrome, short bowel syndrome, malabsorption and gastroesophageal reflux.

Neocate Splash is the latest addition to the Neocate family, a complete range of amino acid-based nutrition that provides age-appropriate nutrition. It will be available from September, 2017. Neocate products are medical foods and should be used under medical supervision.
