Your Organic Baby Formula May Not Be Very Healthy
The New York Times reported that Similac Organic infant formula contains cane sugar. Babies need sugar to digest the proteins in cow’s milk or soy milk. However, other organic formulas use lactose sugar, not cane sugar. No health problems have been related directly to Similac Organic formula. But, many pediatricians believe there may be consequences to feeding babies cane sugar, including decaying tooth enamel, resistance to non-sweet foods, and childhood obesity.
Parents who buy organic believe they are buying a healthier product. This seems pretty deceptive to me.
