The Baby’s Only/organic brown rice syrup/arsenic issue is causing an uproar among parents who feed their baby infant formula. Even parents who don’t feed their baby Baby’s Only formula are questioning their infant formula. If you’re among them, here’s something you should know about infant formula in general.
No “infant” formula sold in the U.S., including store brands, can contain brown rice syrup. That’s because infant formula is tightly regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Store brand and name brand infant formulas are nutritionally equivalent and brown rice syrup isn’t allowed as part of the formulation for any infant formula sold in the U.S.
“Toddler” formula (for older kids), however, can contain brown rice syrup–organic and otherwise–because it’s not regulated by the FDA like “infant” formula is.
It’s confusing because “Baby’s Only” is actually a formula made for toddlers, which is something else to consider if you’re feeding your infant (a baby age 1 and under) Baby’s Only.
