SureStart™ Paediatric Nutrition Range
Made using world-leading technology, by people with decades of experience and unmatched expertise you can trust.
We pride ourselves on consistently producing paediatric dairy ingredients of the highest quality and performance, ensuring your business needs are satisfied time and time again.
From single ingredients that provide the building blocks for manufacturers to formulate, to speciality ingredients that are underpinned by years of research and development, the NZMP SureStart™ range of paediatric ingredients is one of the broadest available globally.
Ingredients Supporting Cognition
MFGM Lipids contain Milk Fat Globule Membrane and its components (gangliosides, phospholipids including sphingomyelin, ceramides and MFGM-proteins). Emerging evidence demonstrates the potential of these components to support brain development and cognition.
Ingredients Supporting Protection
Probiotics are live micro-organisms which can provide health benefits when consumed in adequate amounts. Research supports the role of some probiotics in strengthening the immune system and providing protection against sickness (Dekker et al., 2012; Sazawal et al., 2010; Dekker et al., 2009). Both SureStart™ probiotic strains (LactoB 001 and BifidoB 019) deliver these benefits, and unlike many other probiotics on the market are underpinned by decades of rigorous research.
Lactoferrin is an iron-binding glycoprotein found in high concentration in human breast milk. Research suggests lactoferrin may have a probiotic effect and could stimulate gut maturation (Valenti P & Antonini G, 2005; Lonnerdal B & Iyer S, 1995). Lactoferrin has been shown to promote the growth of bifidobacteria in preterm infants, contributing to the development of the immune system (Wakabayshi H, et al. 2003).
Ingredients Supporting Digestive Health and Comfort
Hydrolysates are milk proteins that have been gently broken down using our proprietary processes, to make them easier for babies to digest. This may improve minor feeding issues and promote digestive comfort by reducing gastrointestinal transit time. Our expertise enables us to tightly control hydrolysate manufacture, allowing us to offer a range of solutions to suit your needs.
Prebiotics: Galacto-oligosaccharides (GOS)
GOS is a bovine derived prebiotic; a food ingredient that promotes the growth of beneficial gut bacteria. It is made by joining together lactose molecules, which are naturally found in milk. GOS has been demonstrated to be bifidogenic (promotes the growth of beneficial bifidobacteria), anti-infective, and helps to improve stool consistency. These attributes mean that GOS may help to support immunity, digestive health and gut comfort.
Comfort Plus Paediatric Base Powder
Our Paediatric Base Powders bundle together multiple ingredients, to create near-complete base powders. Whilst customers will still need to add ingredients to make a finished product, our base powders will help to make this formulation easier. The Comfort Plus Paediatric Base powder is fortified with 1, 3-Dioleoy 2-palmitoyl triglyceride (OPO) and Galacto-oligosaccharides (GOS), designed to help support digestive health.
