Abstract Because some gangliosides bind bacteria, we tested the influence of supplementating an adapted milk formula with gangliosides, at a total concentration of 1.43 mg/100 kcal, on the fecal microflora of preterm infants. At all sampling times, feces from infants fed with ganglioside-supplemented formula had significantly lower relative content of Escherichia coli than feces from infants fed with control milk formula: the difference was especially significant at age 7 days postnatal < .001). At age 30 days postnatal, fecal bifidobacterial counts were higher in infants fed with ganglioside-supplemented formula (P < .05). We conclude that gangliosides at concentrations present in human milk significantly modify the fecal flora.
