New insights about Milk Fat Globule Membrane (MFGM) in infant milk formulas

Europe - Wed, 09/21/2016

The addition of Milk Fat Globule Membrane (MFGM) to infant milk formulas is a breakthrough development that has reduced the gap with human milk. New research is contributing more evidence in this field.

Recently, one study compared specific fat components of human milk from two different geographic zones and showed their evolution through the stages of lactation. Further analyses showed that only MFGM-supplemented infant formulas were able to supply the total and individual content of compounds present in all lactation periods, with minor exceptions.

These results confirm that the goodness of MFGM supplements improve the quality of infant formulas and make them as close as possible in composition to human milk, the gold standard.
