article image The Launch of a Dry Form of GOS

Fonterra have introduced a dry form galactooligosaccharides (GOS), a lactose-based prebiotic, widely used in infant formula GOS product for infant formula. Matt Cushing of Fonterra says: “Human breast milk contains a range of oligosaccharides that are not available in bovine cow’s milk, so in order to more closely mimic human breast milk in a formula we need to supplement with something like GOS. Unfortunately GOS normally comes in a serum format, which has difficulties when using in a powder/dried blend formulation. Recently, Fonterra has been working with partners in Europe to manufacture GOS in a dried powder format, which does come with challenges as the serum is sticky and difficult to dry. So it requires a more technical knowledge of how to dry the product, humidity and how to change the composition slightly. We will launch the product in 2017 for infant formula and a range of other applications.” In 2014, Dairy Crest, a leading UK-owned dairy products company entered into a strategic partnership with New Zealand’s Fonterra, the world’s leading dairy exporter. Under the partnership, Fonterra will market and sell two Dairy Crest-produced products for the fast-growing global infant formula market, including GOS.
