New Study Demonstrates 4 Year Olds Fed Enfamil LIPIL(R) as Infants Have Brain and Eye Outcomes Similar to Breastfed Babies

those levels. Researchers who have conducted studies of infant formula that included lower levels have not consistently demonstrated improved outcomes when compared with formula not containing DHA and ARA." (5,6)

Regarding control group outcomes, Diersen-Schade explained that the recent Birch study, which enrolled infants born from 1993 to 1995, also included a control group of infants who received Enfamil with Iron as it was available at the time without DHA and ARA supplementation.

"There were significant differences in visual acuity and verbal IQ scores in the control group versus the breastfed group," she said. "That's important; but what's meaningful is that the similar outcomes for Enfamil LIPIL compared to breast milk were still observable at 4 years of age. Equally interesting, the DHA and ARA group was fed Enfamil LIPIL for only four months; yet their results were similar to infants who were breastfed on average for 10 months."

John Colombo, Ph.D., associate director for cognitive neuroscience and professor of psychology at the University of Kansas, said that the Birch study provides long-awaited data about the links between fatty acids in the infant diet and measures of cognitive function, such as IQ. "Quite simply, these data are the clearest evidence yet that show the beneficial effects of LCPUFA on cognitive and intellectual development - and that LCPUFA should be part of the nutritional regimen in early life," he said. "These results suggest that formulas supplemented with these levels of LCPUFA produce gains in cognitive and intellectual function over formulas without these levels."
