Infant nutrition premixes are customized blends that are intended to improve the overall nutritional value of infant formula.
More Formula Consumption in Near Future

In fact, North America shares a large regional market for nutritional premixes for infant formula, and it is forecasted that the value of the market will rise to $103 million by the end of 2028.
Powdered infant nutritional premixes are preferred because of their convenience compared to liquid infant mixes. Aside from convenience, the contamination of powdered premixes is lesser compared with liquid premixes.
Which Ingredients Are Popular in Powdered Premixes for Infants?
There are different types of ingredients put into powdered nutritional premixes. But one of the most popular ingredients used is nucleotides. Nucleotides are added widely not only in infant nutrition but even in pharmaceutical nutrition industries. Premixes containing amino acids such as threonine, lysine, and methionine to name a few are very popular as they are the primary amino acids needed by small children to grow well. Infant nutritional premixes are now becoming more functional as they are designed to help improve bone health, digestion, and immunity of infants.
