The baby formula saga rolls on, and as a public health researcher I have been waiting to see media coverage of someone from the Department of Health or the Food and Health Bureau pointing out three important facts.
Baby, or infant, formula is a manufactured food for babies often used as a substitute for breast milk. It is a powder or liquid concentrate that is mixed with water and fed through a bottle. It is widely used in Asia, which represents 53% of the global market share. In Hong Kong, a shortage in availability of baby formula led to restrictions on how much could be taken out of the city and into mainland China.
