Colic in infants linked to inability to digest apple juice, but not white grape juice

Drinking white grape juice instead of apple means no increased symptoms of crying, abdominal discomfort, or sleeplessness for infants with a history of colic

Miami, FL (May 7, 2002) Young babies with a history of colic are more likely to re-experience some of the symptoms of colic after drinking apple juice than after drinking white grape juice, according to research published in the May, 2002 issue of Pediatrics, the journal of the American Academy of Pediatrics.

The double-blind study looked at 30 infants, ages 4 to 6 months, 16 of whom had a history of colic. The babies with a colic history were divided into two groups; one group was fed one serving of four ounces of white grape juice, the other group received the same amount of apple juice. The babies with no history of colic were also split into two groups; one group receiving white grape, the other receiving apple.

"We found that the babies with a history of colic who drank apple juice exhibited significantly more crying during the study, expended more energy, slept less, and were less able to digest the carbohydrates in the juices," explains study lead author, Debora Duro, M.D. "However, among the babies who drank white grape juice, there was n
