Infant formula is a food manufactured, marketed  and designed for feeding babies and infants under one year of age, usually made for cup-feeding or bottle-feeding from liquid (with or without additional water) or powder (which is mixed with water).

 The U.S. Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA) defines infant formula as “a food which purports to be or is represented for special dietary use solely as a food for infants by reason of its simulation of human milk or its suitability as a complete or partial substitute for human milk”.

Manufacturers ensure that the composition of infant foods shall be designed to be equivalent to a human mother’s milk at time around one to three months postpartum; however, there are many changes in the nutrient content of them. Normally used infant formulas contain cow’s milk which is purified, vegetable oils as a fat source, whey as a source of protein, a vitamin-mineral mix, lactose as a carbohydrate source, and other ingredients which depend on manufacturer.  An increase in breastfeeding in a lot of countries has been accompanied by a rise in the average ageat which baby foods are introduced, which resulted in both rise in breastfeeding and use of infant foods between the ages of 3- and 12-months.
