Measuring Infant Milk Viscosity

 

A new Application Note has been completed and is available from RheoSense Inc.

MilkViscosity is a key component in the analysis of human milk and infant formulas. Research has shown that viscosity is the most important rheological property to determine the ease of swallowing, especially among preterm infants suffering from dysphagia. Milk with too high a viscosity, however, can hinder breastfeeding and induce milk duct clogging. The effects of different additives on formulation viscosity are a topic of ongoing research and have various clinical relevance.
