Abstract

To examine the protein quality of infant food fonnula supplemented with laclUlose (bifidogenic factor), groups of 21 day male weanling rats were fed diet containing lactulose at 0.5% for 4 weeks. The gain in body weight of rats fed lactulose supplemented diet were similar to that of rats fed lactulose free and skim milk powder fed diet as controls. No difference in overall acceptability pattern was also observed in studies conducted with human subjects for organoleptic evaluation. The results suggest that supplementation of lactulose in infant food formula does not affect either the protein quality as indicated by protein efficiency ratio in rats as compared to control formulae or overall acceptability by human subjects.
