Summary: Evaluating ARA Requirements For Formula Development

In the past few years the European Commission has issued that arachidonic acid (ARA) is now an optional nutrient to add to formula while docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) is required at levels higher than ever before (1). This has brought up a major concern when trying to make formula that best represents human breast milk content. […]

Summary: Improved Neurodevelopmental Outcomes Associated with Bovine Milk Fat Globule Membrane and Lactoferrin in Infant Formula

This summary has been adapted from “Improved Neuro-developmental Outcomes Associated with Bovine Milk Fat Globule Membrane and Lactoferrin in Infant Formula: A Randomised, Controlled Trial, The Journal of Paediatrics (2019)”.  The milk fat globule membrane (MFGM) is a component of both bovine milk and human breast milk.
