Galactose in Early Life Nutrition (GALE)

Projecttitel: Galactose in Early Life Nutrition (GALE)
Projectnummer: LWV 20.100
Missie: Gewaardeerd, gezond en veilig voedsel
MMIP:  D2 – De consument, duurzame en gezonde voeding, in een groene leefomgeving
Projectleider: Evert van Schothorst

The goal of the project GALE is to investigate the effects of new digestible carbohydrate mixtures comprising galactose-glucose vs. maltodextrin in early-life nutrition on (long term) metabolic health. We aim to identify replacements for lactose in lactose low/free products to; 1) improve metabolic health of the young consumer; 2) keep the relative sweetness of the final product close to standard human milk, and to improve product quality for those consumers that cannot benefit from lactose.
