Title: Extensively hydrolyzate formulas acceptance in treatment of Cow's Milk Protein Allergy
Introduction Symptoms from allergy to cow's milk protein may impair a child's growth and development and affect associated nutritional needs. In children consuming formula as a supplement to breastfeeding or when breastfeeding is not possible, a formula with extensively hydrolyzed protein (eHF) should be indicated as the first option. Adequate intake is necessary to reverse symptoms and regain growth. However, infants frequently reject eHFs due to unpleasant taste. Combinations of ingredients and their chemical structure could be responsible for better taste or greater acceptance of eHF, facilitating the nutritional recovery of the infant and adherence to treatment.
