ENFAMIL O-LAC LACTOSE FREE FORMULA (400G)

The first-choice formula for lactose intolerance

Enfamil O-Lac is a lactose-free formula designed for babies with mild gastrointestinal discomfort (colic, bloating, wind, diarrhoea) due to lactose intolerance.1

  • Made with cow’s milk, Enfamil O-Lac has the same taste and appearance as routine formula, which means it is readily accepted by babies.
  • It is nutritionally complete and suitable for babies from birth.

Gastroenteritis: a common cause of temporary lactose intolerance

  • Temporary lactose intolerance is common after gastroenteritis2
  • May last up to 4–6 weeks when associated with moderate to severe dehydration3
  • Infants most at risk of lactose intolerance include those:
    • Under 1 year or underweight4
    • With severe diarrhoea, especially when caused by rotavirus enteritis3

Enfamil O-Lac is clinically proven to speed recovery

  • Shortens the duration of diarrhoea in dehydrated, hospitalised children5
  • Produces significant weight gain vs routine formula in infants with recent gastroenteritis following rehydration5

Excellent nutritional profile

  • Nutritionally complete for infants up to 6 months of age, and can be used as part of a lactose-free diet in older children
  • Contains cow’s milk and has a similar taste to routine formula, so well accepted
  • Enriched with LIPIL to support brain and eye development6–8 Learn more
