What’s in Aptamil’s first milk?
Aptamil First is nutritionally tailored with our unique blend of GOS/FOS prebiotic oligosaccharides, LCPs, nucleotides, and key vitamins and minerals, to provide your baby with all the goodness they need.
What are prebiotics?
Prebiotic oligosaccharides, often shortened to prebiotics, are special carbohydrates Prebiotic oligosaccharides occur naturally in breastmilk and a variety of fruits, grains and vegetables, including bananas, artichokes, chicory and onions.
What are GOS/FOS prebiotic oligosaccharides?
We add a unique prebiotic blend of galacto- (GOS) and fructo- (FOS) oligosaccharides to all Aptamil milks which are derived from chicory and lactose.
If you are switching to Aptamil First milk from a different infant formula without prebiotics, you may notice that your baby passes softer stools. This is perfectly natural, as babies fed on infant milks with prebiotic oligosaccharides tend to produce softer, more comfortable stools as a result of their healthy gut flora.
