Soya infant formulas are essential for infants intolerant to cow's milk. Soya formulas contains glucose syrup or maltodextrins instead of Lactose, which has led to concern that they are potentially more cariogenic than standard infant formulas containing lactose. The study was conducted to compare the acidogenic effect of Soya Infant formula, infant formula and bovine milk. The study group consisted of 75 children in the age group of 7-10 years. The plaque pH was measured using plaque pH meter, before and after rinsing with different samples for sixty minutes Soya infant formula is found to be more acidogenic than infant formula (with lactose) and bovine milk. This study demonstrates high caries inducing potential of Soya infant formula. Further awareness of the possible role of Soya infant formula in early childhood caries is required.
