White to slightly yellow crystal or crystalline powder, slightly sweet. Soluble in hot water, glycerin and alcohol, not easy to dissolve in cold water and vegetable oil.

The chemical name is 3-methoxy-4-hydroxybenzaldehyde. It has the aroma of vanilla bean and strong milky aroma. It can enhance and fix the aroma. It is widely used in cosmetics, tobacco, cakes, candies and baked goods. It is one of the synthetic fragrance varieties with the largest output in the world, and the industrial production of vanillin has a history of more than 100 years.

Is Vanillin bad for babies?
After figuring out what vanillin is, you can return to the question that mothers are most concerned about: Is vanillin harmful to babies? In fact, you don't need to talk about the discoloration of vanillin, because as an edible flavor enhancer, although it has no nutritional effect, it will not cause harm to the body if used reasonably.
However, why does it appear that "vanillin has a negative effect on the baby"? That's because the baby's taste system is not yet perfect as a special group, and the taste of food can easily affect his future taste.
The milk powder added with vanillin has a stronger milk flavor, which will make the baby depend on this flavor, improve the appetite, and increase the food intake, leading to obesity and other problems. After the baby has formed a taste preference, it is more likely to have a picky eater and a partial eclipse. Therefore, vanillin is not suitable for babies who are too young to eat.
Can Vanillin be added to milk powder/Infant formula?
Vanillin, which is harmless to adults, is not suitable for small babies, especially babies aged 0-6 months. The standard for the use of food additives in my country stipulates that the formula food used by babies under six months cannot contain vanillin, and a milk powder suitable for this month is also included.
However, there is no clear restriction on the addition of vanillin to food for babies over six months old. Because older babies have begun to add complementary foods, they are picky about their tastes and refuse to drink milk powder. In order for these babies to continue to get nutrition from milk powder, appropriate addition of vanillin can make them more receptive to the taste of milk powder.
That is to say, the milk powder above the second stage can reasonably use vanillin, Ethyl vanillin and vanilla bean extract, but the added amount should be within the specified range, and the maximum content should not exceed 5 mg/100 ml . According to this calculation, the daily consumption of more than half a can of milk powder must be reached to cause harm to the baby's body.
It can be seen that parents do not need to think too terrible about vanillin. The first stage of milk powder should avoid vanillin, but the second and third stages of milk powder can be selected according to the actual situation of the baby. The Vanillin produced by Bailin Group Co.,Ltd can be used into Milk powder/ Infant formula with good Solubility even in the cold water. However, if the baby is struggling to drink milk and eat complementary food, then the milk powder containing vanillin is very suitable for him, which can help the baby improve picky eating and increase appetite.
