Lactose is a disaccharide, consisting of galactose and glucose, and is the primary sugar source in milk. About 40% of the energy value of human milk is provided by lactose. Lactose is therefore an important source of energy.

The EFSA Panel on Dietetic Products, Nutrition and Allergies points at lactose as the preferred source of carbohydrates in infant and follow-on nutrition (1).


The Lactopure® range consists of dry blending quality refined lactose for infant nutrition, which can also be used for wet blending. The lactose is available in different particle sizes, enabling its use in different stages of the infant nutrition production process.
