Manganese absorption from human milk, cow's milk, and infant formulas was studied in humans by using extrinsic labeling of the diets with manganese 54 or manganese 52 and whole-body retention measurements. The fractional manganese absorption from human milk was significantly different when compared with cow's milk soy formula and whey-preponderant cow's milk formula with 12 mg/L of iron and without iron fortification while no significant difference was observed between a whey-preponderant cow's milk formula with 7 mg/L of iron and human milk. The total amount of absorbed manganese was significantly higher from the non—iron-fortified cow's milk formula as compared with human milk, while no significant differences were observed for the other milks and formulas.
