Authorization of 2’FL by distinguished government bodies for human consumption

HMOs are known to have Bifidus, a beneficial bacteria species also known as Bifidobacterium. 2’FL selectively grows in intestinal Bifidobacterium because of three different bifidobacterial categories, such as B. dentium, Bifidobacterium bifidum, and B. infantis. Because of their numerous health benefits and a wide array of applications, 2’FL-based HMOs have become popular over the past few years. Various government agencies are granting their approval for their industrial and commercial use. In July 2021, according to Taiwan Food and Drug Administration, Taiwan authorized the usage of 2’FL Human Milk Oligosaccharides (HMO) in infant formula, milk formula for children aged below seven years, food formula for kids aged below seven years, and growing -up formula. The allowed use of this formula is 1.2g/liter.

Infant formula is the dominant application form, as it is used by working women or those who have issues with breastfeeding. Infant formulas provide holistic development and nutritional requirements as they contain unique oligosaccharides. HMOs in functional food and beverage products can cure certain disorders due to their prebiotic and microbial functions. Additionally, manufacturers involved in the development of infant formulas are constantly engaged in the research and development activities for creating new formulas and ingredients as per the customer requirements.
