October 19, 2022. ISAPP webinar: Human milk oligosaccharides — Prebiotics in a class of their own?

Human milk oligosaccharides (HMOs) are non-digestible carbohydrates and are the third most abundant component in human milk after lactose and fat. More than 200 different varieties have currently being identified in human milk, of which 2’-fucosyllactose is the most prevalent. HMOs play an important role in the development of the intestinal microbiota and the immune system of infants, which may influence health later in life. This webinar features Ardythe Morrow PhD, Professor of Pediatrics, Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, University of Cincinnati College of Medicine, giving an overview of what HMOs are, how they can play a role in infant health and the current scientific state of the art on postulated beneficial effects.
