MMF is the world’s first and only powdered milk fortifier made from human breast milk. It meets the European Society for Paediatric Gastroenterology Hepatology and Nutrition’s (ESPGHAN) guidelines on energy and protein content. As per 2017 WHO Recommendations on newborn health, very low birth weight infants who fail to gain weight, despite adequate breast-milk feeding, should be given fortifiers, preferably those that are human milk based.
Our products are designed to meet the unique nutritional demands of premature babies.
Mother’s own breast milk is the first choice for all neonates including premature infants, due to its nutritional composition and immunologic advantages. Please refer to Clinical Evidence tab on our website. In cases where mothers are unable to breastfeed, pasteurised donor human milk is considered by both the British Association of Perinatal Medicine and the European Society for Paediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition as the best alternative.
Some clinical studies have shown that a purely human milk diet offers protection against, and can decrease the likelihood of, necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) .
In conjunction with UK hospitals and research organisations NeoKare is conducting clinical studies to demonstrate the benefit / critical role human milk products and fortifiers play in supporting the nutrition requirements of premature babies, for whom mother’s own or donor milk does not provide sufficient nutrition
