Abstract
Nutritive foods for infants and children are not available commercially in large scale, except a limited amount of expensive milk products in Korea. Although the majority of infants are breast-fed, when it is not possible, rice products must usually be substituted which is not sufficient in protein in terms of its contents and amino acid composition. Thus, it is very urgent to develop low-cost quality protein food mixtures in order to fill the protein gap existing among the growing generation. The present study is one of the program of -a pioneering attempt on a new food mixture to meet this demand. Several food mixtures containing rice, soybean, FPC, vitamins, minerals and other food additives are developed by Cheigh and kwon (3) The precooked powdered products are slightly yellow in color with a bland taste and permissible bacterial counts. The products are mixable readily with any proportion of water to produce mixtures from milk-like formula for infants to gruel for children. Initially three formulas were prepared, these mixtures contain 22〜25% of protein, 9〜14% of iats, approximately 50% of carbohydrates and required amounts of vitamins and minerals. Thus, F-F-3 and F-P-4 were chosen for the infants feeding trials along with an imported dried full creamed milk as a control. Thirty-two days trials from Nov. 21, to Dec. 22 1969 were per- formed with eighteen female infants under age of one in an orphanage located in Seoul. Although maximum efforts were made to maintain room temperature of 20〜23°C and relative humidity of 65〜70%, it often droped to 20°C and 50〜60% respectively. The formulas were diluted 14% level into sterilized water at 50° C and fed through nipples. After 3 days adjusting period, the only formula was given to each group throughout the term of experiment. We made anthropometric measurements and clinical obswvations studying the infant’s response to the at proper intervals. All the infants welcomed the formula and completed diluted formula 5 times a day which is. equivalent to 140〜168g of F-F-3 or F-P-4. No vomiting, loose bowel, allergic responce wete observed. Frequency of bowel movement was one or twice a day, and appearrace of feces was muck closer to that of usually expected from breast fed infants than those of milk group. Their general appearence was bright and. the body weight increased reasonably in the expected normal range by the. termination of the trial Gathering the above mentioned preliminary data, we came to conclusion that F-F-3 and F-P-4 are comparable with full fat milk in its nutritive value and feedings performance.
