Infant digestion physiology and the relevance of in vitro biochemical models to test infant formula lipid digestion.

Abstract

Lipids play an important role in the diet of preterm and term infants providing a key energy source and essential lipid components for development. While a lot is known about adult lipid digestion, our understanding of infant digestion physiology is still incomplete, the greatest gap being on the biochemistry of the small intestine, particularly the… (More)
