Background:In addition to contemporary lifestyle factors that contribute to the increased obesity prevalence worldwide, early nutrition is associated with sustained effects on later life obesity. We hypothesized that physical properties of dietary lipids contribute to this nutritional programming. We developed a concept infant formula (IMF) with large, phospholipid-coated lipid droplets (Nuturis; Danone Research, Paris, France) and investigated its programming effect on metabolic phenotype… CONTINUE READING
