“Bioactivity of Milk Fat Globule Membranes (MFGMs) and Their Impact on Infant Growth and Development” – CE expires 3/31/18

The Annenberg Center for Health Sciences with an education grant by Mead Johnson Nutrition present… “Bioactivity of Milk Fat Globule Membranes (MFGMs) and Their Impact on Infant Growth and Development “”

Presenter reviews the bioactive components of human milk, with a focus on the milk fat globule membrane (MFGM). The MFGM is a complex of components shown to inhibit various pathogens, and contribute to brain myelination and function. Presenter will specifically discuss MFGM’s contributions to brain function and development, and analyze the evidence base supporting MFGM use in clinical practice.

Learning Objectives  |  At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be better able to:

  • Identify key components required for health, brain function and development
  • Explain how MFGM may support the developing central nervous system and prevent infections
  • Use evidence-based research to develop a supplementation plan that best aligns with the bioactivities provided by human milk

Presenter:  Bo Lönnerdal, Ph.D., distinguished professor of nutrition and internal medicine, University of California, Davis
