Studies reported here examine the extent to which differences in the source of protein (soy vs casein) and of carbohydrate (absence or presence of lactose) may be responsible for differential effects of soy-based and casein-based infant formulas on bone minerals. Growth and bone minerals were measured in rats fed casein-based or soy-based diets with or… CONTINUE READING
