1) Babies under a year old should not be given cow's milk because it is much too salty for them, nutritionists have warned.

I have known 'much' modify a verb, the comparative form of an adjective or adverb, the superlative form of an adjective or adverb, and a past participle.
But in #1, 'much' modifies the adverb 'too' and I'd like to know how this is possible.

Thank you in advance for your help.
