Similac Alimentum is one of the leading hypoallergenic formulas on the market. However, unless your baby is sensitive to corn, or has extreme food allergies, you would never know that Similac Alimentum powder and Similac Alimentum Ready-to-Drink liquid formula were two completely different formulas.
