The production of Infant Milk Formulations (IMF) requires the highest standards of hygiene, food safety and nutritional value. As a global leader in nutritional systems for infant and specialized nutrition, we are able to meet and guarantee these criteria under all circumstances. Our premixes include vitamins, minerals, amino acids and even nucleotides at reliable levels. We also lead in premixes for clinical nutrition. Thanks to our extensive knowledge with antioxidants, we can also prolong the shelf-life of your end products.
Specialized Nutrition Solutions Highlights
Infant Milk Formulations
Of course, breast milk is the nutritional benchmark. We develop and produce IMF premixes according to the international regulations (Codex Alimentarius) on nutrition of infants, using vitamins, minerals, ultra-trace minerals and other bioactive components, like nucleotides. All premixes are formulated and packed under clean-room conditions.
Nucleotides: Cytidine, Uridine, Adenosine, Guanosine and Inosine.
Other nutritional substances like Choline and Inositol.
Clinical, medical & elderly nutrition based on science
Fortifying food with amino acids, vitamins, trace minerals, and more can prevent malnutrition, improve recovery, and ultimately improve quality of life. We offer premixes for specific nutritional needs. To make use of the latest scientific findings, we work together with the University Medical Center Groningen (UMCG) in the Netherlands, which performs cutting-edge scientific research in the field of healthy and active aging. In addition, we collaborate with the Healthy Ageing Network Netherlands and acquire input from the Lifelines clinical trial.
Infant formula with 50% longer shelf-life
To supply a dry infant formula product with enhanced shelf-life, we apply an antioxidant system that is based on the use of synergistic Tocopherol-Ascorbyl palmitate blends, which are easily dosed into the oil blend prior to spray-drying. A 50% increase in shelf life is achieved over the unstabilized formula.
No-shaking infant milk powder
Some world markets demand instant solubility when it comes to milk powder, without the need for intense shaking or stirring, for maximum convenience. This means that also all elements of the nutritional system have to dissolve virtually in no time. We offer perfectly working, proven solutions.
Pregnancy nutrition and even pre-pregnancy nutrition are areas, in which the world will see great future development. Besides well-established formulations with Folate, Folic acid, Iron, Calcium, and Vitamins A and D, we also offer premixes containing other nutrients, like Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids and (trace) minerals, keeping good organoleptic properties in mind.
