The Effect of Fat and Carbohydrate Composition on the Gastric Emptying (ge) of Isocaloric Feedings in Premature Infants

Abstract

The (GE) of 6 infant feedings (20 kcal/oz 60:40 whey:casein) with varying fat and carbohydrate composition was studied. Feedings contained either 100% medium chain triglyceride (MCT) or 91% long chain triglyderide and 9% MCT (LCT) as the fat and either lactose (L), glucose (G), or polycose (P) as the carbohydrate. Eleven premature infants were fed 22cc/kg… (More)
