Benefit-24™ Human Milk-Based Nutrition

Benefit-24 is a human milk-based infant nutrition product specifically formulated to meet 24 kcal / oz. All Medolac Benefit products meet recommendations for commercially-sterile replacement feeding in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU).

 

Benefit-24 may be used when there is a need for higher levels of key nutrients, and may reduce the volume of fortifier required to achieve optimal nutrition targets. Benefit-24 products are homogenized which may lead to improved weight gain in very low birth weight infants according to published data.

Donor milk protein for preterm infants

Donor milk often lacks the protein premature infants need because it is comprised of term infant breast milk. The NICU solution: Benefit-24 offers twice as much protein as average donor milk.

Benefit-24 is ultra filtered and standardized to match the same protein and fat as preterm infant mother’s own milk.

Commercial sterility

Medolac Benefit is a commercially sterile product, packaged in a shelf-stable hermetically sealed pouch. Store at room temperature, no thawing required. Keep for 7 days in refrigerator after opening.

Fortify as needed

While Benefit-24 has high protein, it is not fortified with additional vitamins and minerals. That allows clinical professionals to make the best fortification decision for each baby in their unit.

"

As the NICU Registered Dietitian, I am happy to recommend the use of Benefit-24. We have used this product for the past 2 years and have had no concerns with tolerance to the product. Benefit-24 is useful in infants with fluid restriction as well as those with growth concerns.
