NuFerrin® Spray-Dried Lactoferrin (Bovine Origin)

NuFerrin® is a registered trademark of NutriScience Innovations, LLC.

Description & Benefits


Lactoferrin is an iron binding glycoprotein which is naturally present in cow’s milk. NuFerrin® Spray-Dried Lactoferrin is recovered from premium milk collected from pasture fed cows and not from by-products.


Lactoferrin has been recognized to exhibit various health benefits, with a range of functions including iron binding ability, antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant activities.


NutriScience’s NuFerrin® high purity, spray-dried Lactoferrin is ideal for incorporation into nutritional products.


Fresh is Best


NuFerrin® high purity, spray-dried Lactoferrin is derived from premium raw skim milk, resulting in a product that has low iron saturation levels, low endotoxin levels and exhibits anti-inflammatory activity.


Superior Solubility


NuFerrin® spray-dried Lactoferrin is quicker to dissolve than the freeze-dried equivalent—leading to increased effectiveness and greater benefit to consumers. We use low heat rapid product stability spray drying techniques which creates superior solubility and powder particle properties with low light scattering effect. Typically, lactoferrin is freeze-dried and milled, resulting in particles that can be more difficult to dissolve which reduces its beneficial qualities.

  • Immunity


Test Method


We compared the solubility of Spray Dried Lactoferrin with a competitor’s freeze dried lactoferrin as an additional ingredient to both a blended infant formula base powder solution and an unblended water solution. For the infant formula solution, the two samples were dry blended at a ratio of 30 mg / 100 g with the infant formula base powder.




An accredited external laboratory confirmed the following results:

  • In the infant formula solution, our high purity Spray-Dried Lactoferrin completely dissolved when blended, whereas the freeze-dried Lactoferrin was difficult to dissolve and had visible particles at the bottom of the solution.
  • In the water solution, NutriScience’s Spray-Dried Lactoferrin also solubilized faster compared to the freeze-dried Lactoferrin.
