Human Milk Oligosaccharides – nature's own unique nutrients

A great start in life. Continued by Glycom.

Evolved over millions of years

Human Milk Oligosaccharides are complex carbohydrates that exist naturally in large quantities in our very first food, mother’s milk. Human milk oligosaccharides have evolved over millions of years providing us with a unique nutrient.

HMOs have been heavily researched and documented in science for a long time. They are known to feed the beneficial bacteria in your intestine and reduce the abundance of potential pathogens. Furthermore, HMO structures are part of the protective lining of our lungs and intestines. Through that they provide humans with a balanced microbiota and a nourished intestinal gut barrier.

Now commercially available for the first time

Until recently, Human Milk Oligosaccharides could only be found in mother’s milk. They were just too complex to make at industrial scale. We at Glycom have made the scientific breakthroughs necessary to produce HMOs and make them commercially available for the first time. Our oligosaccharides are identical in structure to those in mother’s milk, they are highly purified and safe for use.
