Developing and supplying special milk for treatment of congenital metabolic disorders
Special milk is infant formula for people who were born with the inability to sufficiently metabolize amino acids.
Newborns undergo blood tests immediately after birth. Depending on conditions, doctors may prescribe special milk upon the discovery of phenylketonuria or other metabolic disorders. Special milk is used in combination with normal milk and food as a method of nutritional therapy to improve conditions.
Megmilk Snow Brand developed Japan’s first special milk for such patients and has continued to manufacture and supply such special milk since 1963. Megmilk Snow Brand views the provision of special milk as one of our social responsibilities and we will continue to ensure product quality and stable supply.
