Wellmune is Ingredient in New Mead Johnson Toddler Beverage
The patented β-Glucan, branded as Wellmune ®, a natural ingredient clinically proven to enhance the immune system, is being used in toddler drinks in Thailand and Mexico by Mead Johnson Nutrition, maker of Enfagrow® Premium toddler drink in the U.S.
Wellmune WGP is a complex carbohydrate formed from glucose molecules that boost key innate immune cells that help maintain health and wellness. Strengthening the immune system is beneficial for all age groups but especially for young children whose immune systems are still developing.
“Nothing is more important than the health of children, and we are very pleased that Mead Johnson has introduced Enfagrow PREMIUM 3 with β-Glucan in Mexico and Enfagrow A+ and Enfakid A+ with β-Glucan in Mexico and Thailand,” said Richard Mueller, Wellmune brand’s president and chief executive officer.
Peer-reviewed clinical research demonstrates that daily consumption of Wellmune WGP improves overall physical health, reduces upper respiratory tract infection symptoms and reduces the harmful effects of stress on the body.
Designed for functional foods, beverages and supplements, Wellmune WGP strengthens innate immune cells that help keep the body healthy. Wellmune WGP is Generally Recognized As Safe (GRAS) under U.S. Food and Drug Administration regulations, as well as patented, Kosher, Halal, non-allergenic and GMO-free. The ingredient is the recipient of an IFT Innovation Award and a Frost & Sullivan Excellence in Research Award.
