Carbohydrates in infant nutrition: facts versus beliefs

May 29, 2024 09:00 AM Europe/Copenhagen


Formula-fed infants rely on manufacturers to provide the best alternative to breast milk. This is why it has long been the goal of the infant formula industry to match breast milk as closely as possible. But, when it comes to the carbohydrate source, a growing number of consumers are asking manufacturers to move away from this philosophy and substitute the lactose.

In this webinar, we explore the facts and beliefs about carbohydrates in infant nutrition – and share the latest scientific evidence about why lactose is the natural choice.
