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.
