Infant Nutrition Chapter in ‘Specialty Oils & Fats in Food and Nutrition’
If a newborn has no access to breast milk, infant formula is the best nutritional choice for infants. Less than 200 years ago, survival rates of babies not fed on breast milk were extremely low. We proudly present the infant nutrition chapter of the publication ‘Specialty Oils And Fats in Food and Nutrition’, written by two of our infant nutrition specialists, Randolph Happe and Luisa Gambelli.
This chapter describes the developments within the industry that led to the availability of safe and nutritionally sound replacers of breast milk: infant formula. Not only is the history of infant nutrition covered, it also includes information on the composition of fat phase, the nutritional and safety aspects and an outlook. We hope this chapter is of interest to you.
