Meeting high standards for infant formula

Supporting infant health with high-quality galacto-oligosaccharide (GOS) ingredients

Now you have a new way to meet stringent ingredient sourcing requirements for your infant formulas and growing-up milks. Backed by deep expertise in oligosaccharides and infant nutrition, BIOLIGO® GL 5700 IMF GOS from Ingredion enables you to bring your products closer to the gold standard of mother’s milk.

The right GOS and company for safe sourcing

Enhance the nutritional profile of your infant formulas and growing-up milks with BIOLIGO® GL 5700 IMF GOS. Galacto-oligosaccharides naturally occur in mother’s milk, and infant formulas with BIOLIGO® GL 5700 IMF GOS will offer an oligosaccharide profile closer to that of human milk.

In clinical trials (Ashley, et al., 2012; Fanaro, et al., 2009; Ben, et al., 2008; Ben, et al., 2004; Napoli, et al., 2003; Moro, et al., 2003), adding GOS to infant formulas has been shown to support the growth of healthy gut bacteria and enable formula-fed infants to produce stools closer to those of breast-fed infants.

Formulation ready

BIOLIGO® GL 5700 IMF GOS is a syrup with 57% minimum GOS content (dry basis). The sugar profile is substantially equivalent to the clinically proven GOS used in most infant formulas, enabling easy substitution in your existing formulas or use in line extensions.
