Danish Scientists Researching Infant Formula Similar To Mothers’ Milk

January 19, 2010: 10:34 AM EST
Calling it a major technical challenge, two companies are working with Danish universities who have received government funding to develop an enzymatic process for producing key oligosaccharides, complex sugars found in high concentrations in human breast milk. Danisco and Arla Foods said the project offers an opportunity to explore the immune system of newborns: oligosaccharides help protect infants from infections and diarrhea. Some oligosaccharides are thought to be prebiotic, nourishing the beneficial bacteria in the intestinal system. “The possibility to develop such substances can lead to new and higher standards for commercial infant formula,” a company scientist said.
