Food Ingredients First: Nutrition, Ingredients and Foods Online - Newsmaker: "Martek`s DHA and ARA important after breastfeeding- study

Infants receiving the DHA and ARA-supplemented formula demonstrated significantly more mature visual acuity than those infants fed the non- supplemented formula.

30/06/2003 Columbia, Martek Biosciences Corporation commented on the results of a study published in the June 2003 edition of The Journal of Pediatrics. Data from the study demonstrated that infants weaned onto formula supplemented with the long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (LCPUFAs) docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and arachidonic acid (ARA) experienced significantly improved visual development at one year of age compared to infants weaned onto formula not supplemented with DHA and ARA."
