Enfamil Human Milk Fortifier supports growth in premature infants

Enfamil Human Milk Fortifier Acidified Liquid supports higher growth in premature infants than powdered fortifiers and is well-tolerated, according to a study sponsored by Mead Johnson Nutrition.

The product comes in single-dose packaging, commercially sterile and free of micro-organisms.

When mixed with breast milk, Enfamil Human Milk Fortifier Acidified Liquid provides 4g protein per 100 calories, in line with European Society for Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition (ESPGHAN) recommendations.

It also has 24mg of DHA and 38mg of ARA per 100 calories when combined with breast milk to help support optimal visual and cognitive development in premature infants.

In the third-party blinded, stratified, controlled trial, 146 preterm infants with a gestational age of 23.7 – 30.4 weeks and birth weights between 530-1,250g received human milk and were randomized to receive Enfamil powder human milk fortifier (control group; 1.1g protein/4 sachets) or Enfamil Human Milk Fortifier Acidified Liquid (1.8g protein/4 vials) for 28 days.
