Baby sleeping in the arms of a woman - Special Nutrition - AAK

Clinically-proven SN2 palmitate ingredient

that mimics the fat structure and properties of human milk fat


INFAT® is a specialized fat ingredient for infant formulas that has been proven in the market for more than a decade.

How does it work?

The optimal nutrition for newborn babies is mother’s milk. It is designed to provide the perfect balanced diet and meet the needs of the growing infant, and is recommended worldwide by health organizations. When a mother cannot, or chooses not to breastfeed her baby, it is important to find an alternative source of nutrition that meets the infant’s needs. The ultimate goal for infant formula producers is to offer a product as similar as possible in its ingredients to mother’s milk. INFAT® is a clinically-proven SN2 palmitate ingredient that mimics the fat structure and properties of human milk fat. Based on a patented enzymatic process, INFAT® provides structured triglycerides with a high level of palmitic acid in the middle position (SN2) of the triglyceride. This unique fat enables easy digestion and optimized uptake of calcium, fat recovery, and energy. 

The clinical evidence

New published clinical and preclinical studies of INFAT® demonstrate that it has positive effects on beneficial gut flora, intestinal health, infant bone strength, stool hardness, and infant crying. INFAT® is sold and marketed by Advanced Lipids, a joint venture of AAK and Enzymotec.
