The purpose of this investigation was to provide quantitative data on amino acids ingested by human milk-fed infants. Ten term infants fed human milk ad libitum were studied at 2, 4, and 8 weeks of age. Measurements of milk volume and amino acid analyses of milk samples were performed. Both total amino acid and nitrogen intakes (mumole/kg/day) declined by approximately 34% during the study (P less than 0.001) to 0.05), primarily because of a 20% decline in respective concentrations in human… CONTINUE READING
