10 kinds of special powdered milk for babies with inborn errors of metabolism

We will fulfill our social responsibilities and obligations.

The best food for any baby in the world is breast milk, but there are some babies who can't eat powdered milk let alone breast milk: babies with inborn errors of metabolism.

Born one out of 50,000 newborns, they can't eat proteins contained in meat, fish and even rice as they congenitally lack enzymes that degrade amino acids. Without proper dietary control, they will suffer from motor developmental impairment, growth impairment and brain cell damage due to accumulation of undegraded amino acids and metabolites.

For babies with inborn errors of amino acid metabolism, Maeil Dairies developed proprietary technologies for producing ten special kinds of powdered milk in eight varieties, which removed certain amino acids and contain nutritional ingredients such as vitamins and minerals and has been regularly supplying them since 1999.

Features of Special Powdered Milk of Maeil Dairies

Produced only by Maeil Dairies in Korea

Only a few companies in the world have developed and produced such special powdered milk for babies with amino acid metabolism disorders, and in Korea, Maeil is the only supplier of such products. In fact, the more that we produce such products, the more losses we endure, but we wanted to develop them with our corporate philosophy of putting the health of our children first rather than mere economic feasibility, and as a result, in 1999, we succeeded in developing eight types of special powdered milk that meet the CODEX standards of FAO/WHO and recommended dietary allowances for Koreans, and are currently supplying them to children throughout the nation via the Planned Population Federation of Korea under the supervision of the Korean Pediatric Society.
