Abstract

This study evaluates the impact of an infant formula comprising large, dairy milk phospholipid-coated lipid droplets containing a vegetable-dairy lipid mixture (Concept-Mix) with 6% of fatty acid (FA) as sn-2 palmitic acid (PA) on infant stool characteristics. Stool samples from infants fed Concept-Mix or standard formula with 97% vegetable lipids with 2% of FA as sn-2 PA (Control-Veg) are evaluated at baseline, 13 and 52 weeks of age. Overall, mean stool fat content decreases from 8 to 10 w% at baseline to
