Phospholipids in milk show promise in enhancing child development

In this research bulletin, Dr Anu Turpeinen explores clinical studies on baby formula rich in phospholipids. Fat globules in mammal milk are coated with a milk fat globule membrane (MFGM) consisting of complex lipids such as phospholipids. Phospholipids are naturally found in dairy fat and as part of MFGM have been associated with effects related to cognitive development and immune function in several scientific studies. Phospholipids can unlock business opportunities that include enhancing baby formula recipes, developing new products, or entering new markets.
