Aequival® 2’-FL
A high purity human milk oligosaccharide for application in infant formula

Breast milk is the best nutrition for newborn infants. In cases where breast milk is not or insufficiently available, FrieslandCampina DOMO wants to offer the highest quality infant formula fulfilling the nutritional needs of the infant. With Aequival® 2′-FL, FrieslandCampina DOMO offers the first human milk oligosaccharide (not derived from human milk) for application in next generation infant formula.

2'-FL in infant nutrition

Oligosaccharides are a vitally important component of human milk, that are hardly present in cow’s milk1. Therefore, infant formula based on cow’s milk is currently lacking human milk oligosaccharides. FrieslandCampina DOMO is dedicated to developing human milk oligosaccharides for application in infant formula.

What is 2'-FL?

Currently, over 200 human milk oligosaccharides (HMOs) have been identified in human milk2. 2′-Fucosyllactose is the most abundant oligosaccharide in human milk, making up 20 to 30% of all oligosaccharides in human milk3-6.

Why 2'-FL?

Aequival® 2′-FL has an identical structure to 2′-FL, naturally occurring in human milk. 2′-FL has been described as playing a key role in protecting and promoting the health of newborn infants7
