PediaSmart® Soy can be used for children with lactose intolerance and casein sensitivity. The protein source in PediaSmart® Soy is organic soy protein concentrate. Casein is a protein found in cow’s milk but not in soybeans. PediaSmart® Soy contains no dairy-based ingredients and is casein-free. For children with an allergy or intolerance to casein, PediaSmart® Soy can be a useful addition to a child’s diet to help ensure proper nutrition along with other casein-free healthy foods and beverages.
All ingredients used in PediaSmart® Soy are gluten free. PediaSmart® Soy can be a useful addition to the diet of a child with celiac disease, gluten enteropathy, or other conditions where gluten needs to be avoided to help ensure proper nutrition along with other gluten-free healthy foods and beverages.
PediaSmart® Soy does not contain corn. For families concerned about genetically engineered (GE) foods or genetically modified organisms (GMOs), corn is often avoided because so much of the corn grown today has been genetically modified. The leading brands, PediaSure®, Boost Kid Essentials®, Carnation Instant Breakfast, and Bright Beginnings® Pediatric Drink Soy all contain maltodextrin, a derivative of corn.
