cow’s milk (e.g. SMA) – many of the follow-on formulas are casein-dominant o Manufactures promote whey-dominant formulas as more closely resembling the whey: casein rato of breastmilk o Possible advantage of whey-dominant formulas promoton of benefcial gut fora and easier digeston than casein-based formulas o Nutritonally, whey-dominant formulas are not superior to casein-dominant o Probably no need to select a formula based on these ratos for healthy infants – whey-dominant formulas are recommended for pre-term infants Nucleotdes Found in all human cells and are the building clocks of DNA and RNA o Breastmilk contains 9 diferent NTs o Infants can make nucleotdes themselves, however, because they grow quickly, the demand may outweigh supply Dietary source may be important o NT’s may beneft GIT development, the immune system, growth of good intestnal bacteria and iron absorpton o Evidence for these benefts is not conclusive, more research is needed o Most of the S-26 infant formula range contain added NT’s Long chain polyunsaturated LCPS appear to be very important in the development of infant’s brain and vision (retnal functon) Newborn infants have limited capacity to make the LCPs: arachidonic acid (AA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) Evidence suggests that formula-fed infants require dietary AA and DHA to match that received from breasted infants in breastmilk Clinical studies have reached diferent conclusions regarding the benefts of adding LCPs to infant formulas – may be advantageous The premium more expensive infant formulas in the S-26 and Karicare (Starter and follow on) and Heinz (starter) range have added LCPs Downloaded by jh iu ([email protected]) lOMoARcPSD|5120665
Infant Formulas for special feeding problems AR Thickened formulas o For babies with refux problems (e.g. Karicare AR, S26-AR) o Some of the lactose Is substtuted with a thickening agent such as rice starch or carob bean four o Some AR formulas are casein (cured) dominant (e.g. Karicare AR) Lactose free infant formulas o For infants with lactose intolerance (e.g. S-26 LF, Karicare De-Lact) o If lactose intolerance is secondary to e.g. gastro, re-challenge with routne formula afer 4-6 weeks Soy formulas are also lactose free Soy infant formulae Alternate to routne formulas but ofer no specifc advantage over cow’s milk-based formula May be suitable for infants with cow’s milk protein intolerance (CMPI) or allergy o Note: many infants who are allergic to cow’s and goat’s milk are also allergic to soy milk Given to infants who cannot take cow’s milk under medical supervision Specialised formulae (for infants with confrmed pathology, under medical supervision) Very specialised formulas for severe food allergies and intolerances o Cow’s milk and soya protein allergy – formulas containing extensively hydrolysed whey protein (e.g. pept- junior, alfare) o Severe allergy to cow’s milk protein, soy protein and hydrolysate protein (e.g. neocate – 100% synthetc amino acids) Premature, Low Birth-weight Infant Formulas o E.g. pre-NAN, S-26 Low Birthweight
