S29—2                Infant formula product—calculation of energy
                   (1)      For paragraph 2.9.1—4(2)(a), the energy content of infant formula product must be calculated using:
                            (a)      the energy contributions of the following *components only:
                                      (i)       fat; and
                                      (ii)      protein; and

                   (2)      The energy content of infant formula product must be expressed in kilojoules.
S29—3                Infant formula product—calculation of protein content
                            For paragraph 2.9.1—4(2)(b), the protein content (PC) of infant formula product must be calculated in accordance with the following equation:
                           
                            where:
NC is the nitrogen content of the infant formula product.
F is:
                            (a)      for milk proteins and their partial protein hydrolysates—6.38; or
                            (b)      otherwise—6.25.
S29—4                Infant formula product—calculation of potential renal solute load
                   (1)      For paragraph 2.9.1—4(2)(c), the potential renal solute load (PRSL), in mOsm/100 kJ, must be calculated in accordance with the following equation:
                           
where:
Na is the amount of sodium in the infant formula product in mg/100 kJ.
Cl is the amount of chloride in the infant formula product in mg/100 kJ.
K is the amount of potassium in the infant formula product in mg/100 kJ.
Pavail is given by the formula set out in subsection (2).
N is the amount of nitrogen in the infant formula product in mg/100 kJ.
                   (2)      In subsection (1), Pavail is calculated in accordance with the following equation:
                           
where:
Pmbf is the amount of phosphorus in the milk-based formula.
Psbf is the amount of phosphorus in the soy-based formula.
