Starter and Follow-up Formula with a Specific Blend of Five Human Milk Oligosaccharides Support Age-Appropriate Growth, are Safe and Suitable

Breastmilk is abundant in structurally diverse HMOs. Scientific evidence shows HMOs have different biological functions important for a healthy development in early life. New research presents 12-month follow-up data from a study evaluating infant and follow-up formula containing a blend of 5 different HMOs, designed to represent some of the major HMOs found in breastmilk. The formula contains 2’-fucosyllactose, 2',3-di-fucosyllactose, lacto-N-tetraose, 3’-sialyllactose, and 6’-sialyllactose identical to the most abundant type from each structural category naturally found in human milk. The results show infant formula with 5 HMOs is well tolerated and supports healthy growth and soft stools through the first year of life.
