Nestlé NANKID® launched another scientific breakthrough in children’s nutrition —the most advanced blend of 5 HMOs (Human Milk Oligosaccharides) structurally identical and inspired by the third largest solid component in human milk.
HMOs help support immunity and emerging researches indicate that they also play a role in other areas of development like digestion, metabolism and brain development. In 2017, Nestlé began incorporating HMOs into their milk formula to extend the benefits to families that require supplemental nutrition for children.
“This is how Nestlé continues to make history—with over 155 years of evidence-based scientific research and consistently pioneering innovations,” says Missy Ayson, Business Executive Officer of Nestlé Philippines’ Infant Nutrition Unit. “We carry on with our mission of providing nothing less than the best nutrition that helps improve every child’s quality of life and uplifts every family around the world. Now more than ever, it is vital to not lose sight of our relentless commitment to nourish each aspect of growth and development. All in the desire to achieve the lifelong health of Filipino children.”
Nestlé NANKID® is the first in the world to introduce a milk formula with the unique five HMO complex, as well as the first to bring this global scientific breakthrough in the Philippines.
Human Milk Oligosaccharides, also known as HMOs, are one of the most abundant components of human milk. Emerging research continues to reveal all the ways that these bioactive substances promote growth and protect health.
