Supplemented Infant Formulas: Which is the Best?

Author(s): Mukadder A. Selimoglu.


The introduction of infant formulas created a new age in infant feeding practices. With the introduction of infant formulas, it became a great ambition to create a more adapted product, as the composition of breast milk is gold standard for infant feeding. In this paper, it was aimed to review the rationale and concerns of the use of newer infant formulas, supplemented with pro-, prebiotics, nucleotides, and long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids, in order to help pediatricians for their choice. However, it should always be kept in mind that whatever can be achieved with these formulas, they will always be inferior to breast milk.

Keywords: Infant formula, probiotics, prebiotics, nucleotides, and long chain fatty acids
