No breast milk? Try hazelnuts - Around the Arch
September 2012 Issue
A UGA researcher has found that infant formula made from hazelnut oil may be the best substitution for human breast milk. Casimir Akoh, a Distinguished Research Professor of food science and technology in the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, developed a new nutrient based on hazelnut oil that better mimics the structure of mother’s milk, which makes it better suited to nourish infants. The results of his study were published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry. UGA is currently working to develop an infant formula using the modified molecule.
