Human  milk is the best nutrition  for new-borns, giving  them everything they need in early life to grow up healthy. It contains the ideal combination of nutrients such as proteins, fat, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals. Fat is an important component of human milk, delivering 50-60% of an infant’s energy needs. In addition to providing energy, the fat in human milk also provides the infant with valuable essential fatty acids, fat-soluble vitamins and cholesterol. The major form of fat in human milk is triglycerides, followed by long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids and complex lipids. The structure of the fats ensures that it is properly absorbed and digested.

When human milk is not available, FrieslandCampina Ingredients is dedicated to offering the highest quality infant nutrition that is guaranteed to be safe and to fulfil the nutritional needs of infants. We offer several Vivinal Milk Fat solutions to help you obtain the optimal fat composition and structure for your infant milk formula; Vivinal Milk Fat as well as ready-to-use Vivinal Milk Fat blends. We believe that carefully designed blends of cow’s milk fat and selected vegetable fats offer an excellent choice to support the healthy development of infants. The composition and structure of milk fat support infants’ digestion, absorption and overall comfort.[1-6] Vivinal Milk Fat is made from fresh, high-quality cream to which no conserving substances have been added, the blends only contain natural conserving substances.
