Product description


sma-soya-800g.jpg
UK and Ireland map

The only soya-protein based infant formula in the UK and Ireland.

Leaf

A nutritionally complete formula, free from cows' milk, lactose and sucrose.

Plant

Suitable for vegetarians.

As of May 2022, SMA® Wysoy® Soya Infant Formula will have a name change to SMA® Soya Infant Formula.

Our unique formulation will remain the same.

The first 1,000 days of a baby’s life have a life-long impact on many aspects of future health.

Protein is vitally important for a baby’s growth. Therefore, if a baby is intolerant to cows’ milk, an alternative must be found.

We offer the only soya-protein based infant formula in the UK & Ireland.

Galactosaemia is a rare inherited disorder which prevents the body breaking down the sugar galactose, found in milk. Babies with Galactosaemia require a galactose-free diet for life. Since both breast milk and standard infant formula milks contain galactose in the form of lactose then these must be excluded in the diet. Soya-based infant formula does not contain lactose (galactose) and is a safe choice for babies with galactosaemia.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: 

We believe that breastfeeding is the ideal nutritional start for babies and we fully support the World Health Organization’s recommendation of exclusive breastfeeding for the first six months of life followed by the introduction of adequate nutritious complementary foods along with continued breastfeeding up to two years of age. We also recognise that breastfeeding is not always an option for parents. We recommend that healthcare professionals inform parents about the advantages of breastfeeding. If parents choose not to breastfeed, healthcare professionals should inform parents that such a decision can be difficult to reverse and that the introduction of partial bottle-feeding will reduce the supply of breast milk. Parents should consider the social and financial implications of the use of infant formula. As babies grow at different rates, healthcare professionals should advise on the appropriate time for a baby to begin eating complementary foods. Infant formula and complementary foods should always be prepared, used and stored as instructed on the label in order to avoid risks to a baby’s health. SMA® Soya milk‑free formula is intended to meet the nutritional needs of babies and children who are intolerant to cows’ milk protein, lactose or sucrose. Soya infant formulae are not recommended for preterm babies, those with kidney problems, or those with suspected or confirmed soya allergy, where medical guidance should always be sought.
