Infant Formula: Closer to the Reference
Niels C. R. Räihä, Firmino F. Rubaltelli
Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2002 - Medical - 238 pages
This volume documents recent progress in developing infant formulas that are nutritionally and biologically equivalent to maternal milk. This book features contributions from an international group of experts in clinical practice and in research. Coverage includes studies comparing key metabolic indicies - such as plasma amino acid concentrations, long chain polyunsaturated fatty acid profiles, and variables reflecting iron nutritional status - in infants fed new formulas and breast-fed infants. Also included are discussions of the adequacy of current formulas for preterm infants. Several contributors examine the role of maternal milk components and probiotics in promoting development of gastrointestinal immunity."
