Lactoferrin: Superior Nutrition
Lactoferrin, a protein found in cow milk and human milk, is reaching superfood status thanks to its immunity-boosting properties. This smart invention by nature provides essential nutrition to newborns and is especially important in establishing and building their immune system.
Beyond infants, lactoferrin offers a spectrum of nutritional and health benefits across the lifespan right through to old age – from boosting the immune system to supporting gastrointestinal and bone health.
The first milk produced after a baby is born contains seven times more lactoferrin than milk produced later on. In regular milk processing this miracle protein is often destroyed due to high heat.
At Valfoo, we use a state-of-the-art extraction and processing technique to source this precious ingredient from the freshest Swiss cows milk. In 10,000 litres of milk contains approximately 1kg of Lactoferrin and we carefully preserve all the goodness of this ingredient to make its health benefits accessible to everyone.

Proudly 100% Swiss Made
From raw material to final product, Valfoo Lactoferrin VLF-1, is made to Swiss standards of quality.
Valfoo Lactoferrin is prepared directly from fresh Swiss cow’s milk at Switzerland’s largest lactoferrin plant.
Our innovative manufacturing process minimises protein denaturation to optimise lactoferrin’s nutritional properties. Using state-of-the-art spray drying equipment, we can tailor particle size to unique product requirements for excellent solubility and use in a broad range of applications
Derived from Daily Fresh Swiss Milk
100% undenatured Swiss cow milk for optimal nutritional value
Local Swiss dairy farms with high animal welfare standards
Lower daily milk production for higher lactoferrin concentration and lower endotoxins
Reliable and stable supply of milk to secure production
We are the largest Lactoferrin production plant in Switzerland!
Advanced extraction & purification
To achieve 95% lactoferrin protein purity, we use a precisely controlled extraction, filtration and purification process.
High-performance liquid chromatography extracts the maximum available lactoferrin content, while cutting-edge membrane technologies not only enhance purification to reach higher lactoferrin bioactivity but reduce any risk of contamination for guaranteed quality.
State-of-the-Art Spray-Drying Technology
We turn the purified and concentrated lactoferrin into a powder, dehydrating using a spray drying process specially designed to minimise denaturation while maintaining the highest level of functional properties and yield.
Thanks to our ability to create high levels of solubility, VLF-1 Lactoferrin is ideal for applications like white oral and skin care products, use in milk powder where blending is essential and for pressing tablets thanks to its optimal tablet-forming ability.
VLF-1 Lactoferrin: An optimal ingredient for Varied Applications
From infant formula to nutritional supplements to personal care and cosmetics and sports products, VLF-1 is ideal for a wide range of applications.
