EFSA publishes advice on follow-on formulae with lower protein content

放大字体  缩小字体 Date:31 May 2017  Views:59
 
After a safety assessment EFSA concluded that follow-on formula with a protein content of at least 1.6 g/100 kcal made from either cow or goat's milk is safe and suitable for infants. Current EU legislation sets the minimum protein content at 1.8 g/100 kcal.

EFSA also considered follow-on formulae containing protein from other sources than cow or goats' milk. The available data did not allow EFSA to establish the safety and suitability of follow-on formulae with a similar protein content made from soy protein isolates or protein hydrolysates.
