GlyCare™ 2FL

GlyCare™ 2FL

2'FL promotes a healthy start in life for infants

2'FL (2'fucosyllactose) is the most abundant fucosylated Human Milk Oligosaccharide (HMO) in human milk at ~2g/L1 and can positively impact the health of infants : 

  • A protective role; preventing infection of the gut
  • Improve gut barrier and immune regulation
  • Important for cognitive development

GlyCare™ 2FL is clinically tested and can positively impact the health of infants, for example by reducing incidence of bronchitis and respiratory tract infections, and reducing usage of antibiotics and antipyretics2. In addition, GlyCare™ 2FL beneficially modulates the infant gut microbiota to establish a microbiota composition closer to that of breastfed infants3. 2’FL also plays a protective role by preventing infection by pathogenic organisms4, and helps prevent inflammation5,6.
