Everybody agrees that breastfeeding is best for babies. It’s also a wonderful experience for both mother and child. However, global data show that less than 40% of infants under six months of age are exclusively breastfed. This means that many mothers are looking for an alternative to their breast milk. The challenge for infant-care professionals is to help these mothers identify the most reliable breast milk alternative from among the huge number of infant formulas on offer.

Betapol was invented over 30 years ago in the Netherlands. It accurately mimics the unique OPO fat structure found in mother’s milk. This process led to the development of Betapol® which brings infant formula closer to nature and leads to:
- Improved energy intake
- Reduced constipation
- Increased bone mineral density
- Healthy gut bacteria
- Reduction of crying
- Better night sleep
Leading innovation in infant nutrition
Together with established infant nutrition authorities in Europe, we have committed to a major long-term research program to identify and substantiate new Betapol® benefits. These studies have already indicated that Betapol® has a positive impact on brain function and physical development. Innovations like these will enable us to extend the Betapol® portfolio and develop new OPO products, giving you the best infant formula for your baby.
