The Effects of Dietary Palmitic Acid Triacylglyceride Position on Intestinal Parameters in Infants (InFat_005)

2014-08-27 03:13:59 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study is to determine the effect of high sn-2 palmitic acid based infant formula on intestinal parameters in term formula fed infants.

Description

InFatTM is an advanced basic-fat ingredient, which mimics the fat composition and properties of human milk fat and enabling optimal intake of the essential calcium and energy (in the form of fatty acids) and easy digestion. These benefits are the result of a unique fatty acid composition on the glycerol backbone, which ensures high level of palmitic acid at the middle (sn-2) position.

The purpose of this study is to determine the effect of high sn-2 palmitic acid based infant formula on intestinal parameters, anthropometric parameters and stool characteristics in formula fed term infants.
