About Human Oligosaccharides and HiMO

Human Oligosaccharides are Unique nutrients natural to the human body as they are identical in structure to those present in mothers'milk and similar to those in the protective lining of the intestinal tract.


Human intestines contain approximately 100.000 billion bacteria (corresponding to ~ 750 g of bacteria). The bacteria are necessary for the human health as they digest food, produce vitamins, control bowel movements, regulate our immune system, and keep pathogens under control.


The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has authorized our HiMO product as safe for human consumption.

We produce our HiMO product at our large - scale food grade and ISO certified facility in Esbjerg, where we live up to the following standards and certificates:



  • ISO 9001 and FSSC 22000

  • Kosher

  • Halal

  • Bisphenol-A free

  • Phthalate free

  • Latex free

  • Allergen free (except milk allergens)
