Q: What can we expect from your company in the next 6 months? What are your plans?

One particularly exciting example of these ingredients is lactoferrin, a bioactive protein slated for launch as TurtleTree’s first commercial product. It could be applied to infant formulas, sports nutrition, and food and beverage products.
