About Holle Baby Formula

We know baby formula is a key player in our babies development, and picking the right one could be a tad stressful. Well, lets break it down. First of let me start by saying European formula beats American formula by 1000% (no, that's not a typo, it really does!)

Lets take a look at Holle baby formula they have both Holle cow milk formula & Holle Goat milk formula. There are few other formulas (namely: HiPP, Lebenswert, and Topfer.) All of which are up to par but at the moment each brand is being closely reviewed and examined so stay tuned. For now lets get up and personal with the Holle brand

Firstly some general knowledge about EU standard for baby formula and what role Holle plays.

Farming Practices of Holle 


Where do I even start. The European Commission (which is basically the FDA of Europe) is far more superior than the USDA or FDA.
As a rule, the EU requires there be no detectable levels of pesticide residues in any infant formula. This means that all European farms by default are completely organic. The European Commission is extraordinarily strict on this and farmers understand the importance of organic farming. Farms go through annual checks and inspections to ensure everything is up to standard.

When it comes to Holle, the baby formula made from cows milk are Demeter certified. What does this mean? well for starters, Demeter (which is also the name of a Greek goddess symbolizing grain and agriculture) is one of the oldest forms of organic farming. Think of Deteter as the holy grail of organic. No synthetic pesticides or fertilizers, or GMO technology.tasty
They put a huge emphasis on humane treatment of cows, as they should! Cows bred on Demeter certified farms are allowed to graze freely on carefully managed pastures and are not de-horned. Dehorning is an extremely painful process for the cow but it also plays an important role in metabolism and digestion. De-horning cows changes the chemistry of it's natural milk. Knowing this, demeter certification states, cows must have their horns intact. Due to the high standards of Demeter, milk from a Demeter raised cow has shown to have high amounts of vitamin E and beta-carotene, and it tastes delightful!
Plus cows raised on Demeter certified farms are never treated with antibiotics and are not given hormones. These are happy, healthy cows with clean and organic milk.



European baby formula comes in stages


This is fantastic because every stage focuses on another age group and ingredients are slightly adjusted to best suite your baby in the development process.

Goat Milk Baby Formula

Holle offers both cow milk and goat milk. Though goat milk is very similar to cow milk there are some key differences. Goat milk is a great option and has many benefits especially if your baby is sensitive or can not tolerate cow milk. The key differences are:

SUGAR
If your baby has lactose intolerance, goat milk may be an option. Although, I should note, very few infants truly have lactose intolerance. Often times it can be mistaken for sensitivity to cow's milk proteins. In any case, goat milk does contain lactose but in smaller amounts that are easier to digest making it tolerable and easy to consume for most.

PROTEIN
The proteins in goat milk digest faster and more easily than those in cow milk. (This is true for the fats, too.) In terms of allergies, goat milk does not contain the type of casein protein, alpha-S1, that tends to be problematic in cow milk. Instead, the primary type of casein in goat milk is more similar to what’s found in human milk.

FATS
Babies can sometimes be sensitive to the fats in their formula. This sensitivity can cause acid reflex. However, fats are very important for good brain development and a healthy endocrine system in babies, toddlers and children. Both cow and goat milk offer these important fats. Though there are few differences between the fat types and contents of goat and cow milks, the fats in goat milk are more evenly distributed and form a smaller size globule. Causing less acid reflux in sensitive individuals.
