Fonterra’s NZMP Marketing Manager for Paediatric Nutrition, Angela Rowan says decades of research has provided the know-how to produce paediatric ingredients that are inspired by human milk composition, the latest being the milk fat globule membrane (MFGM).
“MFGM lipid ingredients are ideal for infant formula manufacturers who want to offer their customers products that are more similar to human breast milk, which is an important driver of brand choice,” says Angela.
Key benefits of MFGM Lipids:
- Brain development and cognition – complex lipids play important roles in the brain
- Protection – MFGM complex lipids help protect against infection in the gut
- Digestive health – MFGM complex lipids help support the maturation and integrity of the gut
NZMP’s SureStart™ MFGM Lipid ingredients are made in New Zealand and in the Netherlands. MFGM Lipid 70 joins award winning Lipid 100, both now offering flexibility to provide consumers with new, innovative infant formula products.
Breast milk is the ideal source of nutrition for infants. It contains everything a baby needs up to 6-months-of-age to grow and develop in a healthy way and gives children the very best start in life. Breast milk substitutes are recognised by the World Health Organisation as the only safe and nutritious alternative to breast milk for infants whose mothers cannot, or choose not to, breastfeed.
