FORMULA

MY CHILD’S PEDIATRICIAN RECOMMENDED A BRAND OF FORMULA YOU DON’T CARRY. WHY SHOULD I CONSIDER PURCHASING A FORMULA MY CHILD’S DOCTOR DID NOT RECOMMEND?

 

We understand why you may be skeptical about choosing a formula that was not recommended to you by a healthcare provider, but we urge you to take a good long look at the formula’s ingredient list. Most American formulas do does not contain any organic ingredients, which means, these formulas are loaded with pesticides and GMOs, which have not been proven to be safe for human consumption. The first ingredient in this formulas are corn syrup. In other words, highly processed genetically modified sugar. Similac and other American formulas has enabled babies to be addicted to sugar from day one.

European organic formulas are produced without using any toxic substances. The ingredients are safe, natural, nutritious and wholesome. No pesticides, chemical fertilizers, GMOs, or added sugar!

SHOULD I MOVE UP IN THE STAGES?

 

As a child grows and changes, so do his nutritional requirements. To ensure your baby is getting all of the nutrients he needs to grow and thrive, we highly recommend you use the stage of formula that corresponds with his age. Formula manufacturers like Hipp and Holle have spent many years perfecting formulations to ensure every stage of your baby’s dietary needs is met.

Please note that there is not much difference in the later stages that would warrant a switch on a specific date. You can move forward, or behind a few weeks.

WHAT IS MALTODEXTRIN AND WHY IS IT USED IN BABY FORMULAS?

 

Maltodextrin is a plant-based sweetener. The primary characteristics of maltodextrin is its high solubility, easy and rapid digestibility (high glycemic index), and low sweetness. These characteristics work well in baby formula. High solubility means that the powdered formula will dissolve quickly and smoothly, which makes the formula easier for a baby to drink.

The use of Maltodextrin in infant formulas is widely accepted and there have been no known disadvantages to consuming formulas with maltodextrin.

I’VE HEARD DHA IS VERY IMPORTANT FOR MY BABY. WHAT IS DHA?

 

DHA and ALA are omega-3 fatty acids. DHA fatty acids include fish oil, egg oil, squid oil and krill oil. ALA fatty acid include walnuts, edible seeds, clary sage seed oil, algal oil, flaxseed oil, and hemp oil. DHA is a component for brain and eye tissue development. But the DHA and ALA added to most brands of infant formula is not identical in structure to the fatty acids found in breastmilk.

There have been no studies that have found a benefit to adding DHA to formula. Several published studies all conclude that adding DHA and ALA “had no proven benefit regarding vision, cognition, or physical growth.” Both breast milk and Organic formulas contain essential fatty oils for brain health.

IS PALM OIL SAFE FOR MY BABY?

 

Yes! Palm oil is one of the few vegetable oils that’s naturally rich in saturated fat. Most other vegetable oils are rich in monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats. By combining palm oil with rapeseed oil and sunflower oil, the mixture provides a good fatty acid profile that meets nutritional requirements for infants.

WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THE STAGES?

 

The primary difference between our Infant-Formula (stage 1) and Follow-On Formula (stage 2,3,4) is the balance of milk proteins. Both formulas have whey and casein proteins, but in different proportions.

There is also an increase in iron and filling ingredients such as starch to help wean off of formula and introduce more solid foods in the later stages.

Stages marked as PRE should not be confused with Premie or Preterm Birth. PRE milk formulas normally contain no starch so you are able to feed more to your baby on a 3 hour schedule.

WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THE BRANDS?

WHEN SHOULD I CHOOSE HIPP HYPOALLERGENIC (HA) FORMULA?

 

If your infant's tummy is especially sensitive, then HiPP Hypoallergenic (HA) Combiotic is the Formula you need. HiPP HA is the first organic product which is formulated to meet the needs of children who are at risk of allergies. The milk proteins of this formula are divided into small fragments (hydrolysed) in order to reduce the allergenic properties, so your infant can tolerate them better.

Crucial to the success of prevention of allergy is that the HA formula should stay consistent in the first 12 months of your baby's life. Even a small amount of infant formula with non-hydrolyzed protein can lead to sensitization and so jeopardize the benefits of a low-allergen diet.
