Human Milk Research

human milk research

Nestlé is spearheading significant scientific research for understanding human milk composition. This is done with the aim of improving the quality of life for mothers and babies.

Human milk differs in composition from person to person depending on a number of factors including geography and genetics.

Cat Allergen Research


Nestlé Purina Petcare believes that people and pets are better together…but for allergic cat owners, allergies can interfere with the close interactions they seek to have with their cats.

Our research sought to develop an approach to neutralize Fel d 1, the major cat allergen, to reduce the allergen load in a manner that is safe for the cat.
