  • With products for toddlers and kids already in the market, Else has made tremendous progress towards becoming a player in the $80 billion global infant formula market.

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, May 31, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ELSE NUTRITION HOLDINGS INC. (BABY) (BABYF) (0YL.F) (“Else” or the “Company”), the Plant-Based baby, toddler, and children nutrition company, is pleased to announce that it has concluded a second successful preclinical study on its Plant-Based infant formula, which is a crucial phase for bringing the Company’s innovative 0-12 month infant formula to market.

The study’s results showed proper protein efficiency in a preclinical model; a significant step on the path with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and other regulatory authorities to demonstrate the protein bioavailability of Else’s infant formula.
