A Dartmouth University study has found high levels of arsenic in a number of organic food products, including baby formula. The source of the arsenic appears to be brown rice syrup, an ingredient often used to substitute for high fructose corn syrup. Researchers found one infant formula with twice the amount of inorganic arsenic allowed in drinking water. All baby formulas tested had at least 20 times the amount of arsenic found in baby formula without brown rice syrup. The report didn’t list specific brands, but the head researcher said many of the products were available at local stores in Hanover, New Hampshire.
