Is Nestlé trying to patent human breast milk?

   

No. We have not patented human breast milk, nor are we trying to.

We have filed patents to protect the use of a protein called osteoprotegerin in food and have been granted two patents in the US. This particular protein is found in many types of milk and may be used to help treat bone disorders and regulate immune responses.
