Sufficient Nutritional Composition
Point 2

Sufficient Nutritional Composition

We’ve made each and every nutritional component as close to breast milk as possible in consideration of infant development.

The best nutrition for babies is breast milk. Since Meiji Hohoemi infant formula is modeled after breast milk, it can be used as a substitute for breastfeeding until the end of the weaning phase to about the age of one.

Essential for infant growth
and development
Protein

We’ve made the amount and quality of protein as close to breast milk as possible.

Including nutrients good for infant growth and reducing ingredients not found in breast milk—both of these things are important.
Not just the single nutrient, but the overall balance of protein has been made similar to breast milk!

Protein is not a single component, but rather an amalgam of several kinds of proteins. Digestion and absorption rates as well as the amount of individual amino acids contained in each protein found in breast milk differs. While the total amount of protein is of course important for infant growth and development, so is the proper composition of these individual proteins.

The Growth Study found that the protein quality and volume levels were adequate

Individual levels of fats and proteins, which support infant growth and development, as well as the total nutritional composition, were found to be sufficient in infant development.

Fat

The only powdered formula in Japan with similar levels of DHA and arachidonic acid (ARA) as breast milk.

Formulated with similar levels as breast milk of DHA and arachidonic acid, crucial for supporting infant growth, as seen in the Breast Milk Survey.
The respective amount of DHA and arachidonic acid (ARA) is crucial for infant development. Meiji Hohoemi is the only formula in Japan with similar levels of DHA and arachidonic acid (ARA) as breast milk.

in breast milk

Using the results of the Breast Milk Study.

Using the results of the Breast Milk Study*3, Meiji Hohoemi has created a formula with selenium, a crucial nutrient for infant growth, at similar volumes to those found in breast milk.
