Human Milk Oligosaccharides: Regulatory Aspects

person Seppo Salminen
Topic(s): Gut Microbiota Growth & Development


Seppo Salminen presents the regulatory aspects of HMOs. Human milk oligosaccharides (HMOs) are a group of sugars, which are structurally diverse unconjugated glycans. They are found in human milk with a composition unique to each lactating mother. They have not been used in any other foods previously and therefore the application of human milk oligosaccharides to our food supply requires both safety assessment and most likely also assessment of potential health benefits.
