The effect of calcium palmitate on bacteria associated with infant gut microbiota

In collaboration with the University of Groningen (RUG) and University Medical Centrum Groningen, Ausnutria’s R&D team investigated the effect of calcium palmitate on bacteria associated with infant gut  microbiota. They concluded that “Calcium palmitate inhibits the in vitro growth of various infant gut commensals by damaging the structure and function of their cell envelope. Calcium …

The evolution of infants’ gut microbiota under different feeding regimes

During the 6th World Congress of the PGHAN our R&D department presented their latest research focussed on the evolution of infants’ gut microbiota under different feeding regimes. The results show that the microbiota diversity is similar in infants fed human milk, goat milk and cow’s milk formula. This poster is based on our upcoming research …

The effect of calcium palmitate on bacteria colonizing the infant gut (video)

Short explanatory video on the effects of calcium palmitate on bacteria colonizing the infant gut and how the addition of β-palmitate to infant formulas could possibily help to prevent the related health issues. This results shown in study are sponsored by Ausnutria B.V., the study was performed by the University Medical Center Groningen. Viewing time: …

The effect of calcium palmitate on bacteria colonizing the infant gut

Short summarizing infographic on Ausnutria’s research, in collaboration with the University Medical Center Groningen, on the effect of calcium palmitate on tha bacteria colonizing the infant gut. Did you know that infant formulas with high levels of β-palmitate can reduce calcium soap formation and therefore potentially have an influence on the linked negative health outcomes? …

The early settlers: intestinal microbiology in early life

Article by: Petra A M J Scholtens, Raish Oozeer, Rocio Martin, Kaouther Ben Amor, Jan Knol Abstract The human intestinal microbiota forms an integral part of normal human physiology, and disturbances of the normal gut microbiology have been implicated in many health and disease issues. Because newborns are essentially sterile, their microbiota must establish and develop from the very …

The first thousand days – intestinal microbiology of early life: establishing a symbiosis

Article by: Harm Wopereis, Raish Oozeer, Karen Knipping, Clara Belzer, Jan Knol Abstract The development of the intestinal microbiota in the first years of life is a dynamic process significantly influenced by early-life nutrition. Pioneer bacteria colonizing the infant intestinal tract and the gradual diversification to a stable climax ecosystem plays a crucial role in establishing host-microbe interactions essential …

Analysis and role of oligosaccharides in milk

Article by: L Renee Ruhaak, Carlito B Lebrilla Abstract Milk is an important fluid in glycobiology because it contains a number of short carbohydrate chains either free or as glycoconjugates. These compounds as a class are the most abundant component and benefit the infant by developing and maintaining the infant’s gut flora. New and emerging methods …
