Caption: Melamine, molecular model. Computer artwork of a molecule of melamine, an organic base with a high nitrogen content. Melamine and formaldehyde are the main components of the plastic known as melamine resin, a durable thermosetting plastic. It has also been used illegally to increase the apparent protein content of foods. In 2008, it was found as an additive in baby formula milk in China, which was responsible for severe renal problems and kidney stones in infants.
