Lactobites by Nutrizoe – a nutritious companion for lactating mothers


Bringing traditional nutrient packed ingredients to serve breast-feeding mothers

Exclusive breastfeeding is probably the simplest way for infants to meet all of their nutritional needs in the early months. It helps provide essential nutrition for a baby’s growth & development, and helps build immunity – providing protection from various infections and diseases.

The World Health Organization recommends exclusive breastfeeding for about the first 6 months, with continued breastfeeding along with introducing appropriate complementary foods for up to 2 years of age or longer. However, a large number of new mothers tend to stop exclusive breastfeeding sooner due to lifestyle factors, lack of awareness, lactation-related concerns or/and not having enough breastmilk supply.

Diet intake has a direct impact on the quality and quantity of breastmilk supply. With a large number of new moms working or living in nuclear families with minimal support, committing to self-care & ensuring wholesome nutrition intake is often compromised. Lactation bars such as Lactobites by Nutrizoe, can be a convenient, go-to option in such cases.

Why should you try Lactobites?

  1. These bars contain “galactagogues”, such as fennel, fenugreek, gondh, shatavari and other plant compounds that aid in increasing milk production.
  2. Convenient & easy option to fulfill nutritional needs of lactating mothers
  3. These bars are doctor recommended, making it a trusted option for mothers.

Who should avoid this product

  1. Allergens include milk products and tree nuts and the bars are processed on machinery that also processes peanuts, tree nuts, sesame, soy and dairy products. This makes the bars unsuitable for those with soy, dairy & nut-related allergies
  2. Those suffering from prolonged high bp post delivery should be mindful of the sodium content in these bars, to ensure it does not exceed the daily recommended allowance.
  3. Women with low blood pressure should consult their healthcare professional before consuming, as these bars contain cinnamon, which helps improve blood flow and may further lower one’s blood pressure
  4. Not recommended for women suffering from diabetes, since it contains honey
  5. Those suffering from hypo/hyperthyroidism should consult their healthcare professional before consuming, since allergens include soy, which is known to interfere with production of the thyroid hormone.

Let’s decode the packaging

  1. Ingredients :
    1. An intriguing observation about Lactobites is that its components closely resemble those found in the conventional homemade laddoos, which are also galactagogues. Galactagogues are molecules that facilitate milk production & its sustenance, and various studies have established the benefits of galactagogues for breastfeeding mothers.
    2. Fructooligosaccharides (FoS) are a prebiotic plant sugar that can be obtained naturally from fruits and vegetables or can be synthesized chemically. It is a form of soluble fibre and helps in promoting good bacteria in the gut.
    3. Nature Identical Flavoring Substance – Berries is a food additive that is chemically identical to the naturally occurring flavor compounds found in foods. Such additives are generally considered safe for human consumption by regulatory agencies.
  2. Regulatory stamp :
    1. FSSAI – a food safety certificate issued by the food authority of India
    2. NABL – National Accreditation Board for Testing and Calibration Laboratories, fully safe for mothers and babies
