Abstract
The nutritional reserves of premature infants are generally lower than those of full-term children. The needs of the premature infant are greater. Pre-infant formulas are specially formulated to contribute to growth and development of premature infants and are available in several distribution channels in Côte d'Ivoire. Nutrients such as proteins, fats and carbohydrates, as well as minerals in commercialized formula samples were analyzed. Scanning electron microscopy, and atomic absorption spectrophotometry were used. The results showed values close to the values indicated on the packaging by the manufacturers. The concentrations of these nutrients in these formulas are higher than those of breastmilk. This study has contributed to the quality control of infant formulas sold in Côte d'Ivoire.
