Hello, I'm Stella Metsovas, and today we're going to discuss the protein ratio of Enfamil. It's with strong reason doctors and the medical community at large strongly urge women to breastfeed for at least six months. Mother's milk helps boost beneficial microbes in the gut of infants helping them develop stronger immune systems during their entire lifetime. In The Department of Biochemistry, Microbiology and Immunology, researchers found that a human milk contains a diverse population of bacteria that likely influence colonization of the infant gastrointestinal tract by looking at the human milk metagenome. Their conclusions indicated that the need to further expand the complexity of human milk, the actual metagenome and enforce the benefits of human milk ingestion on the microbial colonization of the infant gut. Now, I understand for some women, breastfeeding might be physically impossible. So today we are going to look at protein ratios of Enfamil. Infant formula is defined as a manufactured food to feed babies under the age of twelve months and The food and Drug Administration defines infant formula as a food which purports to be or is represented for special dietary use solely as a food for infants by reason of its stimulation of human milk or its suitability for human milk. Pediatrician, Dr. William Sears, states that Enfamil promotes a 60 to 40 whey to casein ratio similar to human milk. It's actually 70 to 30 and the whey content of some human milk can be as high as 80%. He also stresses that unlike manufacturers of Carnation and Enfamil who claim their formulations are most like human milk on paper, the maker of Similac has departed from this way of thinking and formulates their protein based on what actually gets into the baby's blood, not what's listed on the can. This approach seems to have more scientific merit and until this whey war is settled, let your baby's digestive system be the guide. So make a quick note according to Dr. Sears. The digestive tract of your infant will almost always indefinitely alert you of the goodness or not so good ingredients of the formula you choose.
