Not illustrated. 1916 edition. Excerpt: ...the food. If for any reason it becomes necessary to feed a child for a time on sweetened condensed milk or any other low-ash food, the lime and phosphorus present may be advantageously fortified by the addition of some substance, preferably organic, rich in these elements. In this connection may be recalled the tests made by Hart, McCollum and Fuller (24) wherein the breaking strength of the pig femurs was materially affected by the feeding either of inorganic or of organic phosphorus; and Burnett's work (10) wherein it was "conclusively proven" that "food rich in phosphates and mineral matter will increase the strength of bone." CoNcLUsIoNs 1. The femur of the average pig fed sweetened condensed milk was but two-thirds as strong as that formed when normal milk was fed. 2. Only a slight difference appeared between the normal and the evaporated milk groups in regard to the breaking strength of their femurs, but this difference favored the normal product. 3. In spite of the high ash percentage utilization by the pigs fed sweetened condensed milk, their body gain contained less ash than did the gains of either the normal or the evaporated-milk-fed-animals. 4. Tricalcic phosphate does not seem to be a particularly available form in which to furnish lime and phosphoric acid. 5. The tricalcic phosphate probably was used in two ways. Small amounts may have contributed directly to the body growth; and its presence may have allowed more of the original ash in the several foods to be utilized, by supplying what might otherwise have been needed for the saponification of fat in the food.
