More Information

  • Product characteristics: 
    - Fat: Fat provides 11% of total calories in PFD 2. The fat source is soy oil. Soy oil is a source of essential omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids: linoleic acid and alpha-linolenic acid; 100 g of PFD 2 provides approximately 2.5 g of linoleic acid and 320 mg of alpha-linolenic acid.
    - Protein: PFD 2 does not contain protein or protein-building amino acids. Appropriate amino acid mixtures or other sources of protein must be supplied when feedings are prepared to make the product nutritionally complete. Mead Johnson Nutrition does not supply amino acid mixtures for use with PFD 2.
    - Carbohydrate: Carbohydrate provides 89% of total calories in PFD 2. The carbohydrate blend is 86% corn syrup solids, 11% sucrose (table sugar), and 3% modified corn starch. The sucrose in the product helps improve the taste when amino acids from other sources are added. PFD 2 is lactose-free. 
    - Vitamins and Minerals: Vitamins and mineral levels in PFD 2 meet U.S. Food and Drug Administration requirements per 100 Calories for vitamins and minerals as mandated by the U.S. Infant Formula Act and the associated Code of Federal Regulations 21 C.F.R. part 107.1 Amounts of B vitamins have been increased above levels in routine infant formula for cofactor production. Calcium, iron, zinc, manganese, and copper levels are higher in order to help meet the needs for these minerals when low-protein solid foods are introduced.
