Here are some sharings of the experts from Alaska Milk Corporation and Royal FrieslandCampinathe during the launch of their partnership and with the theme "Friso Four Shares Journey of Growing Up."
Mild processing preserves protein quality. Royal FrieslandCampina, has ventured into producing quality milk that aids not only in digestion but helps children absorb necessary nutrients for growing up and becoming strong inside and out. Through extensive research and innovations in milk production, Royal FrieslandCampina has endeavoured to ensure that it produces milk that will provide premium nutrition for infants and young children.
Just as feeding and nutrition is important to the health of a child, digestion is also crucial as it determines the absorption of nutrients from milk. The speed of digestion determines the speed at which nutrients are made available to the bloodstream.
The transition from breast milk to infant formula often results in constipation or diarrhea among infants. This is due to the significant differences in composition between infant formula and human milk.
There must be an understanding of the main differences between infant formula and breast milk to understand how these two different types of milk are digested by children. Studies have shown that consuming breast milk results most often in soft stool among infants.
Although there are differences in protein, fat and carbohydrate compositions between breast milk and infant formula, it is hypothesized that the production of the milk is highly relevant to digestion. During processing, proteins combine with carbohydrates (glycation) in such a way that digestion becomes very difficult. Non-digestion proteins can lead to unfavourable metabolic responses and changes in gut integrity. Mild processing in the factory can overcome these problems.
With stringent quality control, and its solid focus on promoting innovation, Alaska Milk Corporation and Royal FrieslandCampina are committed to deliver products which promote proper digestion and absorption that will help infants and young children grow healthy inside and out.
