Kennedy, K. et al. 1999. Double-blind, randomized trial of a synthetic triacylglycerol in formula-fed term infants: effects on stool biochemistry, stool characteristics, and bone mineralization
A double-blind, randomised trial of a synthetic triacylglycerol in formula-fed term infants that demonstrated infants fed the higher sn-2 formula compared to a standard formula, measured bone mineral content, softer stools and lower stool fatty acid soaps, similar to that of breast-fed infants. The study noted that the greater bone mass measured could be important if it persisted beyond the trial period and would merit further investigation.
