Evaluation of infants fed soybean and evaporated milk formulae from birth to three months. A comparison of weight, length, hemoglobin, hematocrit, and plasma biochemical values



Evaluation of infants fed soybean and evaporated milk formulae from birth to three months. A comparison of weight, length, hemoglobin, hematocrit, and plasma biochemical values



American Journal of Diseases of Children 100: 264-276



The total weight and length gains of normal infants receiving soybean milk (Mull-Soy) and evaporated milk formulae were similar, as were the patterns of weight and length increase. The individual growth curves of infants fed soybean formula and evaporated milk formula are presented on Iowa Growth Charts, and the weight and length increase of these two study groups of patients are also presented in graph form. Physical examinations and developmental achievements of these patients were similar. Hemoglobin and hematocrit values were comparable in infants fed a soybean milk formula, infants fed an evaporated milk formula, and control infants on ad libitum diets. These values were considered normal. The values for hemoglobins and hematocrits at 3 months were also similar to each other and to those reported by others. Plasma biochemical determinations at birth and again at 3 months of age revealed comparable values for all three study groups. Total plasma cholesterol increased significantly by the age of 3 months in infants fed ad libitum diets, but not in infants fed soybean milk. The total serum protein and the partition of the protein fractions by paper electrophoresis were carried out at birth and at 3 months. These determinations showed no significant difference in the three groups except for a marked fall in the level of gamma-globulin in all patients at 3 months of age.
