Providing the right nutrition for optimal infant growth
23 May 2023 --- It is well established that nutrition during the first 1000 days of life can have major effects on growth and development.

Lactalis Ingredients, which has been working for more than 15 years on nutrition, proposes to review the literature on how to provide adequate nutrition for optimal infant growth.

Nutraceuticals for Female Athletes: Easy incorporation Into Functional Foods & Beverages
16 Mar 2023 --- According to data from the Council on Responsible Nutrition, 77% of consumers of dietary supplements are women!Astonishingly, the number of sports nutrition lines and products designed for and marketed specifically to female consumers is relatively small compared to the greater sports nutrition market.
