Neocate infant formula is an amino-acid based formula manufactured by Nutricia and designed for infants who are allergic to cow’s milk, soy milk, and other allergens. In recent years, studies have indicated that infants who ate a diet consisting solely of Neocate infant formula experienced serious health issues including rickets, low phosphate levels, and bone fractures.

What is Neocate Infant Formula?
Neocate infant formula is a group of hypoallergenic formula products recommended for infants with certain allergies and food intolerances.
Also known as an elemental formula, Neocate is free of cow’s milk protein, which is known to reduce the risk of an allergic reaction. Neocate is one of the most popular brands of alternative formulas for infants and children with cows’ milk and soymilk allergies.
What Have Studies Found About the Dangers of Neocate Formula?
Findings from several medical studies in recent years have created growing concerns about the safety of Neocate formula products. Some notable studies include:
- A 2017 study published in the medical journal Bone found a link between Neocate and low blood phosphate levels – a condition known as hypophosphatemia. Hypophosphatemia can contribute to low bone density and skeletal deformities, broken bones, poor growth, and rickets. The study noted that 94% of participants exhibited side effects after taking Neocate formula, and that their conditions improved after switching to different products or taking phosphate supplements
- A separate study from 2017 published in Bone Abstracts of “seven cases of exclusively Neocate-fed babies who developed hypophosphataemic rickets,” found evidence of leg deformities, rickets, and femur fractures on X-rays. All children in the study (ages 5 months to 3.2) were fed only Neocate formula at the time their symptoms appeared. The study urged clinicians to exercise caution in using elemental formulas.
In addition to these studies, there have been high-profile cases of Neocate-fed children presenting with injuries to doctors who initially suspected child abuse, only to later find that the cause of their injuries was their Neocate-only diet.
One such case reported on by the Clarion Ledger involved a Mississippi father who was investigated by Child Protection Services after his son, a 10-year-old with cerebral palsy whose diet consisted only of Neocate, experienced several unexplained broken bones. It was later discovered that the fractures likely resulted from his son’s Neocate-only diet.
