Jennewein Biotechnologie, a German producer of rare functional sugars, has acquired former facilities of Arthus Mineralsprings to boost its fermentation production of human milk oligosaccharides, used in infant formula. Currently, Jennewein produces 2'‑fucosyllactose and lacto-N-neotetraose; the deal will add 3‑fucosyllactose, difucosyllactose, lacto-N-tetraose, 6-sialyllactose, and 3-sialyllactose.
