Infant formula oil & fat market refers to the oil & fat ingredients used in the production of infant formula. Oil & fat are an important component of infant formula as they are the chief source of energy to infants. Generally, different blends of vegetable oils or oil & fat derived from animal source are used as the oil & fat ingredient in infant formula. Infant formula composition should be designed in such a way that it can mimic human milk fat as closely as possible. Designing fatty acid part of infant formula is a complicated process as fatty acid composition of human milk varies greatly along different regions. This is because type of food consumed by people varies greatly across the world which affects the milk composition of mothers.

Palm olein in combination with sunflower oil, rapeseed oil and palm kernel is generally used by many infant formula manufacturers as it has similar fatty acid composition of fat present in human milk. But palm olein is rich in POP fat where as human milk fat consists of OPO fat. Thus palm olein is being replaced by OPO fat. OPO fat is similar to triglycerides present in human milk. OPO fat acid arrangement allows infants to absorb more palmitic acid and calcium which in turn contributes to substantial nutritional benefits including improved intake of energy.
