Is There Sugar in Baby Formula?
I heard there are corn syrup in the baby formula. There has been plenty of talk about high fructose corn syrup and too much of it can lead to serious health problems including heart disease and diabetes...Are Corn syrup solids in the baby formula the same thing as high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS)?
Because both ingredients originate from corn starch, their names can be misleading. But they are NOT the same.
Corn syrup is glucose polymers - long chains of glucose linked together - derived from corn. To make corn syrup solids, corn syrup is dehydrated until most of the water has been removed. Corn syrup solids provide energy for your baby. Plus, they are easily digested even if your baby is sensitive to lactose or sucrose.
