The Foods for Health Institute is carrying out important research on the nourishing effects of breast milk for both baby and baby's microbiota.
Under our Milk and Lactation theme, we work to understand the structure and function of breastmilk - which offers fundamental nutrition for newborns and the milk-oriented microbiota (MOM) in the infant gut.
FFHI researchers are part of an important paper in Cell, which offers novel approaches to address childhood malnutrition through nourishing gut microbes with milk compounds.
