Recently, Alaska Milk Corporation (AMC), the leading Filipino milk company who established its brand for 40 years in the country , has partnered with Friesland Campina, a premium global brand which has been in the business for over 130 years. Both are committed to provide everyday affordable nutrition to Filipino families. Friesland Campina x Alaska Milk promises to deliver products which promote proper digestion and absorption that will help infants and young children grow healthy inside and out.
How will they do this? They found out that during processing of cow’s milk to become formulae protein becomes less denaturated and glycated. During protein denaturation, proteins lose their structure that may lead to protein-fat complexes that can interfere with stomach emptying. The rate of stomach emptying is important for optimal digestion.
Proper digestion is crucial to the health of a child as it determines the absorption of nutrients from milk. The speed of digestion determine the speed at which nutrients are made available to the bloodstreem.
Royal FrieslandCampina, one of the world’s leading dairy companies, has ventured into producing quality milk that aids not only in digestion but helps children absorb necessary nutrients for growing up and becoming strong inside out. Such as Friso Four for children above 3 years old and Frisomun for pregnant and lactating moms.
However, FrieslandCampina and Alaska reiterates that human milk / breast milk is still best for babies and even for the mommies. So when in doubt, breast is still the best choice.
