DuPont receives award


2018-08-16

DuPont Nutrition & Health announced they have received the prestigious NutraIngredients-USA “Ingredient of the Year Award 2018” for their innovation to promote infant nutrition by supplementing infant and toddler formula with Human Milk Oligosaccharides (HMO) to make it closer to the gold standard of human milk, as well as supporting digestive, immune and cognitive development in infants. The award, presented at a ceremony in Chicago following the Institute for Food Technologists Annual Meeting and Expo, is given for true innovation and cutting-edge research in the nutrition and dietary supplements industries and is an acknowledgement of the industry’s very best international health research.

“This early win for CARE4U™ 2’-FL HMO underlines the research which indicates that commercially produced HMOs such as CARE4U™ can mimic some of the health-promoting effects of the HMOs present in human milk, helping to close an important gap between human milk and infant formula,” said Ratna Mukherjea, technology and innovation leader-HMO, who accepted the award on behalf of DuPont Nutrition & Health.
