DuPont Nutrition & Health and Inbiose have received regulatory approval of their first human milk oligosaccharide (HMO) ingredient for infant formula in the European market. Human milk oligosaccharides, complex carbohydrates found in breast milk, are an important breakthrough innovation in infant formula, developing a product with more of the health benefits associated with human milk.

There are more than 100 HMOs found in human breast milk, with 2’-fucosyllactose (2’-FL) being the most abundant. In 2016, Inbiose and DuPont Nutrition & Health (DuPont) announced a joint development and licensing agreement for the exclusive rights to produce and commercialize 2’-FL and other selected fucosylated HMOs for food applications.

“After many years of critical research and significant investment, we are delighted to see the first of our range of human milk oligosaccharides becoming commercially available, thus addressing a major gap in the nutritional composition of infant formula,” says Prof. Wim Soetaert, Inbiose executive chairman. “Thanks to our successful collaboration with DuPont, our first HMO is now commercialized, with many others to come.”

“The substantial equivalence dossier for 2’-FL received EU Novel Food approval in December 2017,” says Paul Tenning, regulatory affairs manager, EMEA, for DuPont, “and we are excited to be able to bring this important new ingredient for infants and children into the European market.”

2’-fucosyllactose, which will be marketed by DuPont under the brand name CARE4U™, is already approved for use in dietary supplements, with potential applications related to digestion and immune health.
