Preserving Breast Milk for Military Families

A Passion Backed by Science

At Milkify, evidence-based scientific research is at the heart of the mission. Numerous studies support freeze-drying as a safe and effective method to preserve the nutritional, immunological, and probiotic properties of breast milk.

While detailed molecular changes for each class of molecule have not been extensively studied, both our in-house testing and published research back the nutritional quality and safety of freeze-dried breast milk.

Freeze-dried breast milk powder retains essential macronutrients, micronutrients, and bioactive components. It can be added to solid foods for a nutritional boost and may serve as an alternative fortifier for preterm or low birth weight infants in autologous fortification.

Milkify’s FDA-approved Miris Human Milk Analyzer enables precise caloric density and protein determination for each sample, ensuring tailored nutrition for individual infants. The service also offers nutritional testing for breast milk powder or baseline frozen milk.
