The effect of a low and a high protein diet (approximately 8 and 20% energy from protein, respectively) on the contents of different nitrogen-containing substances in breast milk was studied on three healthy Swedish mothers in full lactation. Each experimental diet was fed during a 4-day period and milk samples were collected during the last day. The milk volume was estimated by weighing the child before and after each feeding. The 24-hr outputs as well as concentrations of total nitrogen, true… CONTINUE READING
