But it is important to know that the use of genetically modified soybeans for the production of infant formula is prohibited in Russia.

Genetically modified food sources (GMIP) are allowed in many countries, including Russia. However, manufacturers of such products are required to indicate their presence on the packaging. If the content of GMIP in the product is more than 5%, this is indicated without fail on the packaging of products in our country, in Japan, Australia, and in the EEC countries, labeling is already required at 0.9% content of GMIP in the product. The United States, Canada and Argentina allow the use of GMIP in all unlabeled products, which should be considered when selecting blends.

Manufacturers of soy isolate do not recommend the use of this product, bought in specialized sports nutrition stores, for children under 16 years of age. But, according to reviews, soy protein isolate can be given to children in an amount equal to the daily normal intake of milk by a child, no more.
