Human Milk Oligosaccharides (HMOs) by Prof. Lars Bode

Breastfeeding is the natural and golden standard for infant feeding as it has been proven to positively influence their development. Breast milk provides the ideal balance of nutrients for the infant and contains bioactive components. Human milk oligosaccharides (HMOs) are a crucial component of human milk and the third most abundant after lactose and lipids. […]

The role of microbiota in brain homeostasis during adulthood and in early life by Dr. Francesca Ronchi

Probiotics and prebiotics in allergy

Allergy is a hypersensitivity reaction caused by an immunological response to an antigen.Food allergy affects between 4-10% of children younger than 5 years of age, and its prevalence has risen over the last decade. Research has shown that oral intake of pre and probiotics may support and benefit microbial colonization’s in infant’s gut. Learn more […]
