Protein: between quantity and quality, how to satisfy the specific needs of infants ?
JOIN OUR WEBINAR ON INFANT NUTRITION / 5 JULY / 12:30-13:30 (PARIS)
Maternal milk is the quality reference for optimum development of new-born babies. When breastfeeding is not possible, milk preparations are used, which provide the necessary nutritional needs of new-born babies.
Today, it is recognized that the first 1 000 days of early life are decisive for the development of children and their future health and, it appears, that protein intake plays and important role. Protein, nitrogen and amino acid requirements change rapidly during this period; it is therefore essential to be able to adjust the intake according to metabolic specificities of new-borns.
Results of scientific literature are still conflicting about the ideal amount for infants. Beyond the quantitative aspect, it’s crucial to take into account the protein quality and the amino acid composition, in order to perfectly meet the needs of children during their development.
Lactalis Ingredients, which has been working for more than 15 years on protein quality optimization, proposes to review the protein requirements (from pregnancy to food diversification including preterm infant) through scientific literature.
