hanakid contains prebiotics, vitamins, minerals and selenium

Hanakid is a product designed for growing children. This product is made from fresh cow's milk and its components are based on scientific recommendations and nutritional requirements that children over 3 years old need.

Milk is an essential food for children to provide nutrients and supplements in their diets. Hanakid contains sialic acid, prebiotics, AA and DHA. It is highly rich in vitamins A, C, D, E, and B vitamins like folic acid and other important minerals such as calcium, iron, zinc, magnesium, and selenium. The lipids and proteins which are part of the product are optimized to supply growing childrens’ needs and weight gaining as well.


Why Hanakid?

Children significantly make up the world's population and how to care for their development,  physical and mental health is the priority of any community. Childhood as one of the most important stages of life needs to be seriously considered since it contributes to a healthier life in later periods. Therefore having proper nutrition plays a vital role in childhood.

Due to the rapid growth, nutritional needs are high for 3-year-old children or older. The energy consumption per kilogram of body weight is twice as much as that of an adult while the baby's stomach is about one-fifth of an adult's. Therefore, every meal should contain more healthier and rich nutrients.

Hanakid as an enriched milk powder for 3-year-old children or older is a convenient, useful, and affordable solution to supply your child's nutritional needs.

Below is the comparison of two glasses of Hanakid with 300 ml of pasteurized cow's milk

What is the difference between Pasteurised milk and hanakid?


Energy and main components :

Energy is a vital need that leads to a child's growth. Hanakid is particularly designed to produce greater energy than pasteurized milk while the amount of fat and protein is lower.

Proteins :

Protein is an important nutrient and the source of energy that everyone needs on a daily basis. It plays a key role to repair cells, muscles, bones and controlling important metabolic processes of the body. Hanakid consists of lower protein than pasteurized milk while having more biological value.

Hanakid contains lower Casein than pasteurized milk since it is difficult for babies to have it digested. On the other hand, this product contains more Whey Protein than cow's milk since it increases the nutritional value. Hence, Hanakid is much better than cow's milk and will help the baby's growth in terms of nutrition and digestion.

Some of the benefits of whey protein :

  •  High in essential amino acids (high nutritional value)
  •  Muscle growth and energy supply
  •  Increasing the immune strength
  •  Easy water solubility
  •  Easy digesting
  •  Fast absorption ("whey Protein" is absorbed in 2.5 hours but "Casein" is absorbed about 6 hours).

The protein daily requirement for a 3-year-old child or older is 19 grams.

Two glasses of ready-to-use Hanakid will supply about 43% of the protein daily requirement.


Prebiotics :

Hanakid contains FOS and GOS prebiotics while cow's milk lacks these valuable compounds. Prebiotics help to eliminate gastrointestinal disorders and increase the immunity of the baby (preventing the growth of pathogens). Taking two servings of ready-to-use Hanakid a day transfers about 300 mg of prebiotic to the baby's body.


Fats and Fatty Acids :

Hanakid lacks animal fat while containing vegetable oils. Therefore, its nutritional value is better than pasteurized milk due to the saturated type of milk fat.

Hanakid contains AA and DHA. These essential fatty acids added to boost the baby's IQ, increase problem-solving ability, and develop the vision.

The following diagram shows that :

  • The percentage of long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) such as AA (arachidonic acid: omega 6), DHA (docosahexaenoic acid: omega 3), and alpha-linolenic acid (omega-3) is much higher in Hanakid than in cow's milk.
  • The percentage of unsaturated fatty acids (UFA), such as linoleic acid (omega-6) in cow's milk, is lower than that of Hanakid.
  • The percentage of saturated fatty acids (SFA) in Hanakid is lower than in cow's milk.

Vitamins :

Hanakid contains vitamin D 30 times more than pasteurized milk to keep strong bones throughout life, in addition to building strong bones in children. Vitamin D helps the body absorb calcium. The absorbed "calcium" plays a considerable role in bone formation. hence, vitamin D is one of the key factors in the proper growth of children. Vitamin D affects cell growth and neuromuscular function and strengthens the child's immune system.

 

Hanakid is rich in vitamin C and it causes better iron absorption.

By taking the ready-to-use solution of Hanakid twice a day:

  • More than 80% of the baby's needs for vitamin A is met.
  • More than 50% of the baby's needs for vitamins B1 and B6 is met.

By taking the ready-to-use solution of Hanakid twice a day:

  • All the baby's need for vitamins C, E, and B is met.
  • About half of baby's need for vitamin K1 is met.

Minerals :

By taking the ready-to-use solution of Hanakid twice a day:

about 65% of the daily requirement for "calcium" and "copper" is met. The ratio of "calcium" to "phosphorus" in Hanakid is 2. Therefore, it is very useful for the growth and strengthening of the bones and teeth of the baby.

By consuming the ready-to-use solution of Hanakid twice a day, all the baby's need for "zinc" is met.

The cause of short stature in adults is zinc deficiency in the growing-up period. As a result, the presence of sufficient "zinc" in the Hanakid leads to better growth and increases height.

By consuming the ready-to-use solution of Hanakid twice a day, more than half of the body's need for "iron" is met.
