The FDA-approved Infant Formula has 40 essential nutrients and is enriched with alpha lactalbumin, which represents 25% of the protein found in breast milk. Alpha lactalbumin improves absorption of nutrients and helps support the development of a healthy gut. The Formula has added lactoferrin, a key protein found in higher concentrations in human breast milk. As an antimicrobial and antiviral agent, lactoferrin is especially important in establishing an infant's immune system.
