Formulas tested in different trials had consistent energy and macronutrient composition but may have varied slightly on micronutrients. The exception is one PHF-W study which had a protein content of 2.4 g/100 kcal [9]. None of the formulas used included probiotics. One study of PHF-W included 4 g galactooligosaccharides/L formula [5]; no other study formulas contained a prebiotic.
