Food allergy practically any product can cause easy forms of food allergy

in the newborn. The before the kid wean and transfer to substitute of maternal milk, the it is more at it than chances to become the allergic person: at the child the intolerance of components of mix can just develop.

Transfer to substitute of breast milk has to be carefully thought over. Only the pediatrician can choose a suitable product for the child. At intolerance of protein of cow`s milk, it is possible to use substitutes of breast milk on a soy basis. Such mixes prepared with use of isolate of soy protein exists very much. In Russian you can find in shops of baby food:“ Frisosa “, “ Enfamil - soy“ and “Izomil“, “Alsa“, “Humana - SL“, and others. It is necessary to remember that at the child the intolerance and soy protein can be observed.

On this case specialized products at which use development of an allergy is impossible as the proteinaceous component in them is split to the level of separate amino acids exist. These are proteinaceous hydrolyzates of “Nutramigen“, “Pregestimil“, “Alfare“, “Alimentum“ and “Pepti is the junior“.

Despite high medical efficiency, these mixes cost rather much and are not palatable on taste. Four years ago in Russia there was a proteinaceous hydrolyzate with a partial hydrolyzation “Frisopep“ solving the last problem - pediatricians sometimes call it “the most tasty among tasteless hydrolyzates“. Also HECTARES“, “Humana of GA1“ and “Humana of GA2“ treat mixes with a partial hydrolyzation Hipp “.

With introduction of a feeding up the next difficulties are found. Cases when the green apples or rice flour which are considered as hypoallergenic products led to development of allergic reactions in children of the first year of life are not so rare. For example, in the morning mother gave to the kid fruit puree, and found red cheeks in the baby in the evening.
