Over 40 years of pioneering breastmilk research
Breast milk has been the inspiration for Nutricia’s research for over 40 years. Our dedicated team of around 250 specialist scientists collaborate with hospitals, laboratories and universities worldwide to ensure we’re leaders in this field.
While much of our research analyses the incredibly complex composition of breast milk and explores its functional health benefits, we also seek to better understand how the diet of the breastfeeding mother influences her own health.
Our research has already resulted in several innovations in formula composition.

Nutricia opens its first research centre dedicated to baby nutrition in Zoetermeer, the Netherlands.
Since then, the centre has applied state-of-the-art technologies to build extensive scientific expertise in the analysis of breast milk ingredients.
