FrieslandCampina: ‘What’s exciting is combining HMOs & GOS for digestion,

With this demand comes expectations, not only with production standards but also with ingredient  quality and formulation choice as parents seek out the very best nutrition for their children.

NutraIngredients spoke to Sophie Nicolas, Marketing Manager, Early Life Nutrition at FrieslandCampina Ingredients on forthcoming company plans, new directions and trends entering 2022.

FrieslandCampina recently launched Deminal 90 Organic, a whey ingredient for the organic infant formula market.

Could you comment on the ‘premiumisation’ of infant formula, which offers organic, vegan as well as premium ingredient (omega-3, probiotics) options to meet demand from a more affluent population?

“We know organic products are a key priority, and we also understand the importance of developing infant formula that supports specific health benefits.

“For example, our latest research reveals that gut health is a trending topic for parents of young children, with 55% looking for infant formula solutions that can support a healthy gut.

“We believe a premium infant formula differentiates itself by the quality of the science behind its ingredients.

“That is why we are passionate about the research revealing the ability of GOS (galacto-oligosaccharides) and HMOs (human milk oligosaccharides) to influence infant gut health.”

Does FrieslandCampina buy into the notion that this premiumisation will convince mothers to consider alternatives to breastfeeding?

“Parents in China are already leading the way in their focus on standout solutions: the market there for ultra-premium products is rapidly outpacing the premium category, with a CAGR of 26% between 2018-2020.
