Supporting baby’s digestive comfort

Digestive health for babies is in the spotlight. Discover how parental demand for digestive comfort can be met with ingredients that nourish the gut microbiota and assist digestion in the still immature infant gut.

In early life, an infant’s gastrointestinal tract has not yet fully matured. This means that the digestion and absorption of food can be suboptimal, leading to complaints of gut discomfort 60Iacono G, Merolla R, D’Amico D, et al. Gastrointestinal symptoms in infancy: A population-based prospective study. Dig Liver Dis. Published online 2005. doi:10.1016/j.dld.2005.01.009 . In their first year of life, over half of infants display at least one symptom of gut discomfort, such as regurgitation, colic or constipation 64Innova and RFC, Global consumer study Early Life Nutrition 2020 / selection parents with 0-1 year-old child . And so it comes as no surprise that their baby’s digestive health is a key priority for today’s parents 64Innova and RFC, Global consumer study Early Life Nutrition 2020 / selection parents with 0-1 year-old child .
