Evivo is a food, first and foremost and is an important component in the efficient and complete use of breast milk for newborn infants.
Within the FDA, the Office of Food Additive Safety oversees a process called GRAS status for many types of products, including Evivo. These products must complete an extensive process of scientific and data review by independent qualified experts, who assess whether the product is safe under the conditions of its intended use. Evivo gained GRAS status for use with term infants after successfully completing this process, with consensus by all independent qualified experts.
If a baby is preterm, immunocompromised or has underlying health disorders, please consult a physician.
