What are human milk oligosaccharides?: Basic science

Human Milk Oligosaccharides (HMOs) are the third most abundant component of human milk. Originally HMOs were discovered because of their prebiotic effect. Science evolved and currently it is already known that their effects go beyond the bifidogenic one, benefiting infants in many different ways. In this presentation you will find information about basic science and potential benefits of HMOs.
