No, i dont think so...at least not the ones i looked at. We used Target brand milk based formula, and it has no corn syrup, and when i was doing my comparing it was either with Similac or Enfamil (milk based)...no corn syrup. Whereas with the soy formula, corn syrup is the first ingrediant, meaning that is what the formula has most of (and indeed is 43 percent corn syrup). The ingredients on our Target milk based formula are nonfat milk, lactose, vegetable oils (palm olein, soy, coconut, high oleic (safflower or sunflower) oil) whey protein concentate and then less than 1 percent of a bunch of vitamin type stuff i dont feel like typing out. The main ingredient in milk based formula is milk. The main ingredient in mainstream soy formula is corn syrup solids.
Its good to know that the organic formula doesnt have corn syrup, although it still freaks me out how a baby can thrive on brown rice syrup. At least milk based formula is, well, milk. Cow's milk, sure, but at least its mammal milk. Thats not an indictment of mom's whose babies need soy formula, as i said you do what works, and give your baby what they can tolerate. I'm just really glad i didnt have to make that choice.
