A mixture of Galacto-oligosaccharides (GOS) and Fructooligosaccharides (FOS) are added to commercial infant formula to promote an intestinal microbiota similar to that prevalent in breast-fed infants to improve Ca bioavailability and general health, but their mechanisms are under debate.Our objective was to evaluate the beneficial effects of the mixture of GOS/FOS added to infant formulae, on the absorption of Ca, Mg and P of a low Ca diet. Changes in in...

During early life undernutrition impairs normal weight and height gain that affects bone health. During recovering it is required an extra-amount of Ca to ensure the high demands of bone mineralization. A mixture of galactooligosaccharides (GOS) and fructooligosaccharides (FOS) would be a useful tool to increase mineral intestinal absorption to enhancing the amount of Ca to be retained into bone. Our objective was to evaluate, in an experimental model of protein restriction (P...
