Human Milk Oligosaccharides – nature's building blocks for health

A great start in life. Continued by Glycom.

Natural aid to human health

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 to provide us with one of nature’s building blocks for human health.

Gives us a good start in life

HMOs are known to nourish and protect us. They have been heavily researched and documented in science for a long time as one of the key beneficial ingredients in mother’s milk. HMO structures are part of the protective lining of our lungs and intestines, as well as the outer surface of all the cells in our bodies.

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. We at Glycom have made the scientific breakthroughs necessary to produce HMOs and make them commercially available for the first time. These oligosaccharides are highly purified and identical in structure to those in mother’s milk.
