Bioactivity of Milk Fat Globule Membranes (MFGMs) and Their Impact on Infant Growth and Development

Bo Lönnerdal, PhD, distinguished professor of nutrition and internal medicine, University of California, Davis, in Davis, California, reviews the bioactive components of human milk, with a focus on the milk fat globule membrane (MFGM). The MFGM is a complex of components shown to inhibit various pathogens, and contribute to brain myelination and function. Dr. Lönnerdal will specifically discuss MFGM's contributions to brain function and development, and analyze the evidence base supporting MFGM use in clinical practice.
