From: Stool fatty acid soaps, stool consistency and gastrointestinal tolerance in term infants fed infant formulas containing high sn-2 palmitate with or without oligofructose: a double-blind, randomized clinical trial

Figure 4

Stool consistency scores at day 28 according to feeding group. 1Individual stool consistency scores were determined using a five point scale for stool consistency (1 = watery, 2 = runny, 3 = mushy soft, 4 = formed, and 5 = hard). 2 Values are means (± SD). Means (± SD) significantly different from Control: * P <0.0001; significantly different from sn-2: P <0.0001; significantly different from all formula groups: P <0.0001. Control = bovine milk-based, whey-predominant, alpha-lactalbumin-enriched term infant formula with 100% vegetable fat blend; HM = human milk; sn-2 = high sn-2 palmitate formula (Control formula modified to contain 60% vegetable fat blend and 40% high sn-2 palmitate fat blend); sn-2+OF = high sn-2 palmitate formula supplemented with oligofructose at 3.0 g/L.
