Danone has introduced an innovative infant formula, featuring large, milk phospholipid-coated lipid droplets inspired by breast milk’s structure. Studied in the Mercurius trial, the formula demonstrates digestion and nutrient absorption similar to breast milk. A study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition reveals its long-term health benefits, closely aligning with breast milk effects. Babies fed this formula for the initial four months exhibit growth patterns akin to breastfed infants, with sustained lower blood pressure for up to five years. The formula, holding potential for childhood obesity prevention, supports cognitive development and prompts ongoing research into its lasting impact on growth and health outcomes.
