Resumen

LOPEZ, Beatriz; TORO, Carolina  y  OSORNO, Adriana. Relationship between consumption and content of fatty acids in mature breast milk among nursing women in the city of Medellin, Colombia. Rev. chil. nutr. [online]. 2020, vol.47, n.6, pp.889-897. ISSN 0717-7518.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-75182020000600889.

The content of fatty acids in mature breast milk varies depending on the nutritional status of the mother, maternal diet before pregnancy and during pregnancy, and breastfeeding time, among others. This study aimed to characterize the dietary intake of donor mothers of mature breast milk and determine fatty acid profile with emphasis on long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids. Fifty donor mothers were involved, each one provided 60 ml of mature breast milk; fatty acid profile was determined by gas chromatography. The consumption of fatty acids was determined by frequency of consumption and by habitual semiquantitative consumption. We found that unsaturated fatty acid content was greater than saturated (62%) in mature breast milk and total fat was higher than that normally reported in the literature. Finally, there was no correlation between the consumption of fatty acids in the diet of the mothers and the content of these in mature breast milk, which is consistent with the adequate nutritional content that this food should provide to the infant without affecting their health.
