These seem to be the ingredients in the oral suspension vs the oral tablets. I didn’t see the powder on that particular site. Besides the sucrose (why they would put sugar in this is beyond me), do these other ingredients mean anything to you?

Oral Suspension

Each mL of light yellow suspension with cherry-like odour contains nystatin 100,000 units. Nonmedicinal ingredients: artificial flavouring, calcium disodium EDTA, D&C Yellow No. 10, magnesium aluminum silicate, methylparaben, polysorbate 80, propylparaben, purified water, and sucrose.

Oral Tablets

Each round, film-coated, biconvex, pink tablet, imprinted with “TEC” on one side, contains nystatin 500,000 units. Nonmedicinal ingredients: cornstarch, D&C Red No. 30 Aluminum Lake, ethylcellulose, hydroxypropyl methylcellulose, magnesium stearate, mineral oil, sodium lauryl sulfate, stearic acid, and titanium dioxide.

Well spotted. I missed the sucrose on the page about the 500MU I was going to buy ( I suspect they add it to remove any trace of unpalatability! Looking at the oral suspension, I’m also not particularly keen on ingesting colourings or parabens – though I see the oral tablets also has colouring. It seems we can deal with chronic candidiasis, but not medication that isn’t jazzed up.
