17 Jan 2017 --- 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 knowledge of how to dry the product, humidity and how to change the composition slightly."
