The Department of Health and Human Services of the FDA has informed Lipid Nutrition, a division of Loders Croklaan, that based on the information provided by the company, as well as other information available to the FDA, the agency has no questions at this time regarding Lipid Nutrition's conclusion that Betapol[tm] is GRAS under the intended conditions of use. Betapol is intended for use in infant formulas as a human milk fat substitute. The Betapol brand is a novel infant formula fat that closely mimics the structure of human milk fat. It has been shown in scientific studies to offer unique nutritional and health benefits to babies born prematurely and at term. Betapol improves energy supply to the infant, while improving calcium uptake and preventing constipation. Loders Croklaan, Patrick Luchsinger, 815-730-5208,
