As dairy mix is born. The special reporting 7i from Nestl é Switzerland the Few know

, but Nestl é it not only name of corporation, but also name of the person. The druggist Henry of Nestle in 1867 created mix for artificial nutrition of kids of the first year of life. It is no wonder that today on the Nestl é avenue; in Geneva - the central office of the world`s largest concern on production of food Nestl é.

the Very first mix for food of kids consisted of milk, wheat flour and sugar, “Dairy flour of Henry of Nestle“ was called (Farine Lact é e Henri Nestl é) also was on sale in Europe with great success. In 1874 Henry Nestle sold the company to partners in business.

Since then the product range of “Nestle“ constantly extends, and now contains over 8000 trademarks of food which are known by consumers on all five continents.

the Staff - the apartment of Nestl é

Neon futuristic interiors remind

Institute of time from the movie “The Guest from the Future“ in which the robot Werther lived.

On 6 - the m the floor is the museum of production Nestl é let out in the different countries.

A is a view from the corporate dining room...

the Museum of food “Alimentarium“

the Museum is located

in the former building a staff - apartments of Nestl é opposite to a monument to a fork in Lake Geneva. Here it is worth coming with children: very interesting expositions devoted to ware, ways of storage and processing of products. Here it is directly possible to participate in preparation and tasting of different food.

the Thingummy for production of sausages (on the right):

the Most ancient bread in vacuum packing. To it about 4,5 thousand years, it is found in the Egyptian tomb. It was baked in clay flat cakes. When cooling flat cake “shrank“ - ancient vacuum packing turned out.

This elegant room trimmed with a tree - only in the museum which kept the original form. Earlier there was an office of the CEO of the Nestl é company; and now it “Room of Nestl é“ where visitors are told about Henry`s history of Nestle and the company.

the First glass small bottles for feeding of children appeared at the end of 18 - go centuries, but any small bottles made of a tree, porcelain, metal or a cow horn which were found at excavation belong to the Middle Ages. The first nipples from rubber appeared only in the middle of 19 - go centuries.

Scientifically - the research center Nestl é (NRC)

Scientifically - the research center “Nestle“ is near Lausanne, in very picturesque place, in mountains. Here about 700 people from 50 countries which conduct researches in the field of food, their properties and influence of food on an organism work. Results it is used in production of “Nestle“ - therefore it not only it is tasty, but also is useful to health.

the Great value is necessary to researches of prevention of diseases and healthy nutrition.

For example, in Russia children in maternity hospitals is often finished feeding mix. Researches showed that even the isolated case of a dokorm dairy mix can start in a reaction organism which can develop further into an allergy to cow`s milk. Actually, in most cases it is not necessary to finish feeding the child. But, just in case, if in finish feeding need nevertheless will arise, experts advise pregnant mother, being going to maternity hospital, to take with itself hypoallergenic mix.

Gippoallergenny mixes turns out by a hydrolyzation (splitting) of long structure of milk protein on smaller fragments. Exist completely and partially - the hydrolyzed mixes. At completely hydrolyzed mix fragments of protein are so small that they cannot come into contact with immune cages and do not cause allergic reaction. In partially hydrolyzed mix - longer particles of molecules of protein, risk of developing of an allergy it is considerably lowered, but nevertheless it can cause reaction in the child. But, such mix allows “to train“ immune system of the kid, and at its application the allergy to milk can gradually disappear.

the Closed laboratories - where the baby food We is born

visited two laboratories which are directly connected with baby food. In one of them study bifido - and lactobacilli. Yes, yes, not all bifido - and lactobacilli are equally useful! This laboratory studies influence of various strains of bacteria, and for production of food use only at what the most beneficial influence on health of kids is revealed.

the Second laboratory is engaged in studying of flavoring addictions. Here test food - directly on children. Process of feeding of kids is captured with the camera, and the special program, reading out a mimicry of the kid, defines as far as the food is pleasant (or it is not pleasant) to children. Researches show that if the child refuses a certain product, then it should be offered not less than eight times - and over time the kid “gets used“ to new taste. Parents, as a rule, cease to offer an unloved product after the second - the third attempt.

Also in order that to the kid to impart since the childhood taste to healthy and correct food, experts advise to give every day different products. For example, we enter vegetables. In the first day we give vegetable A, in the second day - vegetable B, in the third - With, then again And etc. For example, vegetables A and B are pleasant to the kid, and C - not really. Researches show that if to continue to offer vegetables in the same sequence, through 3 - 4 weeks kids begin to eat with pleasure also unloved vegetable! This rule contradicts the recommendation of the Russian pediatricians - to enter one new product and to give only it within a week. By the way, similar recommendations are made by pediatricians of Germany, and here in France just conform to the rule “every day-a new product“.

A here still the interesting facts about which we were told here. In Switzerland about $6000 for health per capita in a year, in the USA - $8000, in Russia - about $1000 are spent (it at the level of Philippines and Indonesia). If in Russia these expenditure were increased twice, then it would allow to increase average life expectancy in Russia till 75 years.

Factory on production of baby food Nestl é

Konolfinger - a small small village in the German part of Switzerland with the population less than 5 thousand people. The factory on production of dairy food exists 120 years. In 1892 it let out milk in bottles, since 1933 made vegetable and canned meat. In 1971 the factory was redeemed by the Nestle company - and began to let out dairy mixes for children.


exactly here turns out Now products delivered to Russia. Very great value is attached to quality of milk which undergoes multilevel testing. The most part of milk goes from local family farms. In each of them cows - it is so much no more 30 - 40 how many one family may contain. At the same time about 7000 Swiss cows “work“ only for Russia.

the Milk received from farms undergoes testing. If in milk traces of antibiotics are found, all consignment of milk is rejected - such milk will not get to production. After check milk is separated on cream and bezzhirovy part, further it is enriched with lactose, saccharites and oils, that is approaches on structure breast milk (casein is replaced with serumal proteins which are rich with the amino acids necessary for the correct development of the child, and saturated fats of cow`s milk change for the nonsaturated vegetable fats which on structure are brought closer to fats of breast milk). Dry mix is enriched with vitamins and mineral substances in 2 minutes prior to packing to exclude oxidation processes.

the Dairy farm

the Farm which we visited is in mountains, in very picturesque and lonely place. Here, as we were told, as a rule, there live several generations:“ The senior generation - any more not farmers, the younger generation - farmers, and children is future farmers“.

This farm since 1988 got improbable quantity of medals for quality of milk. The main indicator - microbic number: quantity of microbes in milk unit - the it is less, the quality is higher. There are certain norms: if it is exceeded, such milk will not undergo testing. But if microbic value below of this border, then such milk is paid more expensively that stimulates farmers to fight for quality.

For example, here to cows are not given a silo as the brozhzheniye is peculiar to it, the increased formation of lactic acid - the quantity of useful bacteria in such milk can decrease, and harmful - grow up. Quality of products which of it receive therefore they so carefully monitor food of cows depends on microflora of cow`s milk. As a result the Swiss milk on microbiological structure is considered one of the best in the world.
