Danisco Joins Danish Project To Synthesize Healthy Compound Found In Breast Milk

January 19, 2010: 01:38 AM EST
Danish food ingredient maker Danisco says it has joined a project whose goal is to develop a technology for producing oligosaccharides, an ingredient found in high concentrations in human breast milk that helps protect infants from infections and diarrhea. The project, funded by a $3.6 million grant from the Danish government, is tackling a major technical challenge, according to participants. But if successful, it will lead to the production of oligosaccharides that can be added to commercial infant formula. Because of oligosaccharides in breast milk, health authorities urge women to breastfeed babies exclusively for the first four to six months.
