The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has officially given a positive opinion on the safety of Arla Foods Ingredients’ (AFIs’) protein hydrolysate – Peptigen IF-3080 – for use in infant formula.

This news follows on from EU regulations stating that the nutritional safety and suitability of all protein hydrolysates used in the manufacture of infant formula in the EU would need to be evaluated (as of February 22, 2022).

AFI’s protein hydrolysate is one of only a few milk-protein hydrolysate ingredients to have received a positive opinion from the EFSA. Those without a positive opinion will be removed from the market.
