Nestlé announces the launch of a growing-up milk containing HMOs (Human Milk Oligosaccharides) for the nutrition of young children in mainland China, under the Wyeth illuma brand.

This launch follows the recent approval of the use of these bioactives by the country's National Health Commission.

The use of HMOs is motivated by numerous scientific studies showing the importance of these components for intestinal and immune health, as well as for the cognitive development of infants", emphasizes Nestlé.

As a reminder, HMOs are the third most abundant solid component in human breast milk, after lactose and lipids.
