Infant Formula Can Be a Major Source of BPA: Experts
Date:7/9/2012

used to package formula do not typically contain BPA.
  • If a powder formula is available that offers good nutritional benefits for your infant, choose powder over liquid. Powders typically have lower levels of BPA.
  • Avoid introducing BPA in powder formula during preparation by mixing the powder in a BPA-free bottle or container.
  • Look for the recycling code on plastic containers and avoid code 7, which means the plastic can contain BPA.
  • Dissolve powder in warm but not boiling water. BPA leaches from containers more at high temperatures.
  • Support the Safe Chemicals Act, which would require safety data for chemicals before they enter the market or that are already on the market. "Supporting that kind of legislation is what will truly reduce exposure to the entire population," Sathyanarayana said.
  • Studies also have detected BPA in breast milk, and there are some indications that the level can be higher than in infant formula.

    Even if this is the case, "the benefits of breast milk likely far outweigh the concerns of BPA," Galvez said.

    Another tip to reduce BPA exposure is to wash your hands well after handling store receipts because they contain high levels of BPA, Sathyanarayana said.
