What are the benefits of the HMOs 2FL and LNnT when added to infant formulae?

Posted: Jan 01, 2015

Formulae with 2’FL and LNnT offer a significant advantage in comparison to formulae without HMOs, with initial results of clinical studies being promising. Some of the key advantages are:

  • Improved Immunity
  • Gut microbiota is closer to the microbiota observed in breastfed infants, both in terms of composition and metabolic activity
  • Stool microbiota in term infants is associated with reduced likelihood of medication (antibiotics)
  • Lower incidence of bronchitis, lower respiratory infections, and reduced use of antipyretics and antibiotics
  • Normal growth similar to breastfed infants
  • Digestive tolerance similar to formula without 2’FL and LNnT, with softer stool conistency
