he Power of Human Milk Oligosaccharides in Infant Nutrition
The Power of Human Milk Oligosaccharides
Breast milk is the gold standard for babies’ nutrition — with a perfect blend of proteins, fats, carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals and other components that support a baby's immune system. Within this nutritional powerhouse, there are unique prebiotics called human milk oligosaccharides (HMOs). Based on over two decades of research, experts believe HMOs could be one of the factors behind breast milk's immune system-supporting properties.
Until 2016, HMOs were only found in human breast milk and not available to exclusively formula-fed babies. Now, thanks to cutting-edge research, those who choose to use formula can opt to feed their babies formula that has a blend of five different HMOs.
