Setting a new industry standard in infant nutrition

At Fi Europe 2019, Bunge Loders Croklaan unveiled Betapol® Plus, the next generation of premium quality OPO lipids for infant formula. It’s the most advanced OPO product of its kind and delivers on our promise to provide the best alternative for mothers unable to breastfeed. With Betapol Plus, we set a new industry standard by matching the fat composition of mother’s milk closer than any other manufacturer. As a result, Betapol Plus was awarded the Fi Europe 2019 Innovation Award for functional innovation.

Even Closer to Nature
As a leader in nutrition innovation, we pioneered the development of OPO with the invention of Betapol® 30 years ago. OPO is a uniquely structured lipid, which is naturally present in mother’s milk. The new Betapol Plus for infant formula offers a 60% OPO level, up to 50% higher than current products. This is closer to the levels in mother’s milk fat than any other offering available on the market. The benefits of Betapol Plus for babies include improved energy intake, increased bone mineral density, reduced constipation, healthier intestinal bacteria, sounder sleep and less crying.
