What is Aequival® 2′-FL? 

Aequival® 2′-FL is structurally identical to the 2′-fucosyllactose (2′-FL) component naturally present in human milk. 2′-FL is the most prevalent human milk oligosaccharide (HMO). HMOs are non-digestible carbohydrates and are the third most abundant component in human milk after lactose and fat. More than 200 different HMOs have currently been identified in human milk2.

Recent clinical trials have suggested that 2’-FL plays a key role in protecting and promoting the health of newborn infants1, particularly in respect to the immune system, and have shown that the addition of 2’-FL to infant formula is safe and well tolerated21,22. Please go to Benefits for more information.
