Designing blenderized tube feeding diets for children and investigating their physicochemical and microbial properties and Dietary Inflammatory Index

Abstract: Background Due to the benefits of blenderized tube feeding (BTF) diets, the interest in using them is increasing. This study aimed to design BTFs for children and investigate their physicochemical and microbial properties, as well as Dietary Inflammatory Index (DII). Methods Five BTF diets were formulated mainly with fresh foods; their DII, physical (viscosity), and chemical (moisture, ash, protein, fat, energy, and micronutrients) characteristics were assessed. Also, the Hazard Analysis and Critical Control P… Show more

“…Contrary to concerns in the literature that the micronutrient content of BTF is inadequate and highly variable [ 26 , 29 ], micronutrient levels were found to be higher in the BTF group in our study. This is consistent with other recent studies which suggest that BTF diets are an excellent source of nutrition for enterally fed children [ 32 ]. Notably, BTF was far superior in fibre content, containing almost 5-fold the amount of fibre in formula.…”
