Its dealings were recently suspended while the Health Ministry investigated the health effects on babies of nursing mothers selling their milk and whether the business violated a law on trafficking in human organs.
Ryan Newell, co-owner of Ambrosia Labs, said last week when the suspension of business was announced that mothers were allowed to sell their milk only twice a day.
It’s custom-made by mom for her own baby and contains the perfect amount of protein, carbohydrate, fat, vitamins and minerals.
However, when formula milk is unavoidable, the results also suggest that its make-up might be altered depending on whether the baby is a boy or a girl, Dr Hinde said.“We have good reason to be sceptical of one size fits all for formula milk,” she told the American Association for the Advancement of Science.
“These studies are showing that mother’s milk affects behaviour and there seems to be differences in that effect for sons and daughers,” she told the meeting“Our study is a step forward in that it integrates the food aspect of milk as well as the signal from the hormone,” she said.
“We're just taking the extra that those mothers would be losing at that point if they start weening their children.” Mr Newell said the women who sold milk may have to go back to working long shifts at garment factories or on the streets.
A hormone that is released when someone is under physical or emotional stress has been found in breast milk and appears to affect babies differently depending on their sex, a study of laboratory monkeys has shown.
Ambrosia Labs, known in Cambodia as Khun Meada, which means “gratitude of mothers”, has been exporting milk from more than 90 Cambodian women for more than two years.
The company, set up by a former Mormon missionary, sells human milk online at (£15) for a sachet of around 150ml, described as enough for “one to two feedings”.

Female babies fed on breast milk with relatively high concentrations of cortisol showed behavioural changes, such as irritability, fear, anger and discomfort, which were not shown in sons fed on breast milk with similar concentrations of the hormone, said Katie Hinde, an evolutionary biologist at Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
The findings lend further support to the idea that “breast is best” and that formula milk does not provide the same nutritional benefits as breast milk.
