Human milk and infant formula

Human milk and infant formula

An authoritative text presents a comprehensive andcomprehensible review of the compositional, nutritional, immunological differences and similarities of human milk, cow's milk, and infant formulas. Compositional comparisons of human milk and cow's milk with respect to their macronutrients (carbohydrates, fat, protein), energy, and micronutrient (vitamins, minerals) content are explored. Immune factors of human milk and the problem of allergies, the effects of mammary infections, drugs, and environmental pollutants are covered. The composition, formulation, and processing of infant formula, the extraction, processing, and storage of human milk, along with the use and misuse of breast milk, infant formula, and non-formula milk products are explored. Infant botulism is also discussed. The role and limitations of lactose at and following weaning is covered. Relevant tabular and reference data such as human milk composition, approved levels of vitamin, mineral, and food additives, maternal nutrition needs, and recommended nutrient intake infants are presented in 8 appendices.
