What You Need to Know Before Importing a European Formula
To help you on the path to find organic baby formula closest to breastfeeding we will help break down what exactly irradiation is and if families that import formula should worry.
Irradiation is the process of applying ionizing radiation to any food product including baby formula. Unfortunately, in the United States irradiation is thought to improve the safety of foods, however, this process is also known to produce unsafe byproducts.
Studies have shown these byproducts can increase cancer causing cells and in the case of American baby formula, can eliminate essential vitamins and minerals needed for healthy growth and development.
Differences between USA and European Formula Regulations
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) currently allows the use of irradiation on overseas, imported foods products, including baby nutrition.
Although the FDA regulates irradiation procedures and uses only approved sources of radiation, they are ultimately subjecting your baby's infant food to harmful and toxic radiation.
Using the irradiation process to eliminate any potential contaminants while causing other potential lifelong health concerns seems counterproductive at best.
In the United States the three sources of radiation approved for the irradiating process are X-rays, Gamma rays, and Electron beams.
Each of these have potential hazards when used on food sources for all family members but can be especially harmful to the delicate system of a newborn.
At this point you may be wondering if there is a way to know if the imported baby formula has been irradiated and if your little one has been put at risk?
Unfortunately, the FDA does not require any notice or labeling of food products that have put through radiation.
The only clear way to tell if your baby formula has been irradiated is to order from trusted sources.
