The Binf strain has the enzymes necessary to thrive in the presence of human milk oligosaccharides (HMOs) and is known to influence the microbiota of the infant through breastfeeding.
In the first open trial, 12 formula-fed premature infants were randomly assigned to receive increasing doses of either formula + Binf or formula + Blac for 5 weeks.
In the infants receiving formula, the Binf group showed an increase in total bifidobacteria and microbial diversity compared with those receiving formula plus Blac.
In the human breast milk fed infants, supplementation with Binf was associated with consistently greater increases in faecal bifidobacteria when compared with Blac supplementation.
Overall, the combination of breast milk and the Binf strain was most effective at normalising the faecal microbiota.
