Litmanovitz, I. et al. 2013. High Beta-palmitate formula and bone strength in term infants: a randomized, double-blind, controlled trial
In this randomised, double-blind controlled trial, it evaluated the impacts of infants consuming high beta-palmitate (Sn-2) formula on anthropometric measures and bone strength. After 12 weeks of consumption, changes in bone SOS (speed of sound) were comparable to those infants consuming breast milk and favourable compared to infants consuming low beta-palmitate (Sn-2) formula.
