Riso PH_Blog klein

Bimbosan is launching a second vegan product onto the market with its new Riso PH infant formula. Based on hydrolysed rice protein, it is suitable for infants and young children with a cow's milk allergy, lactose intolerance or galactosemia. The product complies with the latest legal requirements of Switzerland and the EU and is recognised by health insurance companies. It should only be prescribed in consultation with a specialist.

Cow's milk allergy is the most common food allergy in children under the age of three. Fortunately, it's an intolerance that children often grow out of. Cow's milk is often the first foreign protein we consume and the child's immune system can classify the milk protein as "foreign" or "dangerous", triggering an allergic reaction. Children with a cow's milk protein allergy (CMPA) require a special milk-free non-allergenic diet.

Bimbosan Riso PH is especially suitable for the dietary management of infants up to twelve months who are allergic to milk protein or suffer from galactosemia or lactose intolerance.

Breast feeding is best for baby, including infants with CMPA. If breastfeeding is not possible, infant formula or foods for special medical purposes based on partially hydrolysed rice protein or partially hydrolysed single amino acids can be used as an alternative. Foods based on highly hydrolysed cow's milk proteins are also an option. For children with CMPA, a doctor will decide which food is the most suitable.

Riso PH – the specialist formula for special nutritional needs

With its innovative Riso PH product, Bimbosan has launched a special formula based on partially hydrolysed rice protein. The product is officially classed as a food for special medical purposes and features in HOCHDORF's Smart Nutrition range. Manufacturing Smart Nutrition products requires sound knowledge of nutritional physiology and reliable technological competence to carefully process the raw materials.
