Blenderised Tube Feeds vs. Commercial Formula: Which Is Better for Gastrostomy-Fed Children?

Abstract: Blenderised tube feeds (BTF) have become a popular alternative to commercial formula (CF) for enterally fed children. This study sought to compare gastrointestinal (GI) symptoms, GI inflammation, and stool microbiome composition between children receiving BTF or CF. This prospective cohort study involved 41 gastrostomy-fed children, aged 2–18 years, receiving either BTF (n = 21) or CF (n = 20). The Paediatric Quality of Life Inventory Gastrointestinal Symptoms Scale (GI-PedsQL) was used to compare GI symptoms … Show more

“…Body fat % increase was significantly higher in the CF group (p = 0.0051). 50 In the cohort study by Chandrasekar et al, 46 there was no significant difference in height z-score between the two groups (p = 0.905). Children in the CF group had significantly higher weight (p = 0.0108) and BMI (p = 0.045) z-scores compared to BD.…”

“…47 The two included cohort studies demonstrate dietary fibre intake to be many folds higher in those on BD. 46,48 A recent review focusing on BD symptoms of adults and children on enteral tube feeds also supports the benefit of BDs in alleviating these symptoms. 27 The reduction in GI symptoms is likely directly linked to the reduction in medication use seen in the studies in this review.…”
