I don't have stains but my teeth colour is not shining white, maybe it's due to the formula but I can't say that for sure. But I also assume, that I have less dental enamel due to the formula, I think it's pretty aggressive.

I've heard of a story where a PKU mixed the formula with water and forgot about it and a few days later rediscovered it… of course he or she poured it into the drain and then the pipe bursted – But I'm not sure whether this is a PKU myth or not :-D
