Research on HiPP Milk Formulae

In this section, we present HiPP’s research on milk formulae. Here you can get comprehensive information on the research conducted on our formula products.

Current study provides evidence for the allergy-preventive effect of a hydrolysed infant formula

HiPP HA COMBIOTIC® (extensively hydrolysed formula with GOS and L. fermentum CECT5716) has a very low allergenicity while preserving T-cell epitopes for possible tolerance induction.

HiPP COMBIOTIC® shows positive effects on gut microbiota profiles

New GOLF III study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition (AJCN) shows, a synbiotic infant formula fortified with GOS and Limosilactobacillus fermentum leads to similar intestinal parameters as in breastfed infants.

Meta-analysis confirms the positive effect of L. fermentum on gastrointestinal infections in infants

The probiotic strain Limosilactobacillus fermentum CECT5716 occurs naturally in human milk. The authors of this paper systematically reviewed existing literature and meta-analysed it to assess the effect of early administration of formula fortified with this probiotic strain.

HiPP Growing-up milk improves vitamin D levels, even during the winter months

The study examines whether vitamin D enriched growing-up (junior) milk can better prevent the seasonal drop in vitamin D serum levels during the winter months in comparison with cow’s milk.

Safety and benefits of milk formula with GOS + L. fermentum hereditum®

The two studies investigated the safety and effects of infant formula with pre- and probiotics. The combined administration of natural lactic acid culture and GOS proved safe and well-tolerated, additionally the incidence of gastrointestinal infections was clearly lowered.
