What is MFGM and What Does It Do?
MFGM (Milk Fat Globule Membrane) is a component found in breast milk that helps support cognitive development. It has lipids important for brain structure and function.
The MFGM in Enfamil® Enspire™ brings it compositionally closer to breast milk than our other formulas. This is important because a formula with these milk lipids was shown to foster cognitive development.
In fact, infants who were fed a formula enriched with MFGM from 2 months of age until 6 months showed improvements in a measure of cognitive development when they were tested at 12 months, compared to babies who were fed a formula without MFGM. This was similar to results reported for breastfed infants.*
While other infant formulas may contain traces of MFGM, the MFGM ingredient in Enspire is purposefully added to support cognitive development. As a result, a new era of nourishment is now available to mothers who want exceptional nutrition for the growth and development of their babies.
