Nutten, S. et al. 2020. Peptide size profile and residual immunogenic milk protein or peptide content in extensively hydrolyzed infant formulas

This study looked at the heterogeneity of extenstively hydrolysed formulas (eHFs) and compared the molecular weight profiles among eHF's from different manufacturers. The survey highlights the need for a more meaningful definition of EHF products. However, the clinical implications of it's findings are uncertain and further studies are required.
