3232 A is a Protein Hydrolysate Formula developed for infants and children with disaccharidase deficiencies or other disorders of carbohydrate metabolism. This Protein Formula is to be used with added carbohydrate. Manufactured by Mead Johnson, 3232 A Protein Hydrolysate Formula is a powder formula that comes ready-to-mix. The contents of 3232A are in a handy 1 pound can. Containing tapioca starch, 3232 A Protein is a protein hydrolysate formula for dietary management of carbohydrate metabolism disorders.
Two investigator groups reported on the use of the product. Ten patients with intractable diarrhea who could not tolerate other available formulas received the product while hospitalized. Two of the 10 infants also used the product after discharge. The investigators reported that weight gain for the infants taking 3232 A with added carbohydrate was comparable to that of normal infants. They concluded that 3232 A was valuable in the dietary management of infants with intractable diarrhea. The second group reported on an infant with protracted diarrhea who could not tolerate glucose polymers. The investigators reported that the infant thrived on 3232 A plus glucose for several months following hospital discharge.

3232 A Protein Preparation
- The child’s health depends on carefully following these instructions. Use only as directed by a medical professional. Improper hygiene, preparation, dilution, use or storage may result in severe harm. Powdered formulas are not sterile and should not be fed to premature infants or infants who might have immune problems unless directed and supervised by a doctor.
Discuss with parents whether they need to use cooled, boiled water for mixing and whether they need to boil clean utensils, bottles, and nipples in water before use.
Parents should consult their child’s doctor for instructions for the correct amounts of water and powder. Pour desired amount of water into the bottle. Add powder, cap and shake vigorously.
- Wash hands thoroughly with soap and water before preparing formula.
- Add 81 g of powder (packed, level 1/2 cup) and 59 g of the desired carbohydrate to 4 fl oz (120 mL) of water in a clean bottle or container.
- Mix well with fork or mixer until a smooth paste is formed.
- Add additional water to make one quart. Initial feedings of 3232 A may need to contain less than the full 59 g of carbohydrate recommended or the formula may need to be diluted to 10 Calories/fl oz or less and gradually increased to 20 Calories/fl oz.
- If incremental addition of carbohydrate is desired, consult Table 1.

Failure to follow these instructions could result in severe harm. Once prepared, formula can spoil quickly. Either feed immediately or cover and store in refrigerator at 35–40°F (2–4°C) for no longer than 24 hours. Do not use prepared formula if it is unrefrigerated for more than a total of 2 hours. Do not freeze prepared formula. After feeding begins, use within 1 hour or discard.
Powder Storage (cans)
Store cans at room temperature. After opening can, keep tightly covered, store in dry area and use contents within 1 month. Do not freeze powder and avoid excessive heat. Use by date on bottom of can.
CAUTION: Nutritional powders are not sterile. 3232 A is nutritionally incomplete. Care must be taken to provide enough carbohydrate to support growth. Use other foods with 3232 A as required. If used long term, supplementation of essential fatty acids should be considered. To be used only under the supervision of a doctor.
WARNING: Do not use a microwave oven to warm formula. Serious burns may result. Not for parenteral (I.V.) use.
