Call for comment on new source of human identical milk oligosaccharide in infant formula products

Australia & New Zealand
Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ), is calling for comment on an application to permit a new genetically modified source organism for the production of a human identical milk oligosaccharide to be used in infant formula products.

2'-fucosyllactose (2'-FL) is a non-digestible carbohydrate found naturally in human milk. It is used as a nutritive substance in infant formula products at levels consistent with those found in human milk.

Dr Sandra Cuthbert, CEO, FSANZ, said, “FSANZ’s safety assessment concluded there were no public health and safety concerns associated with the application. The applicant’s 2'-FL is chemically and structurally identical to the naturally occurring substance present in human milk and other 2'-FL already assessed and permitted by FSANZ. While breastfeeding was the recommended way to feed infants, this option is not always available to parents. Infant formula products provide a safe and nutritious substitute for human milk where required. All commercially produced infant formula products available in Australia and New Zealand must comply with the composition and safety requirements outlined in the Australia New Zealand Food Standards Code.”
