The healthiest choice for your baby.

what makes European Formula better?

When it comes to choosing the best baby formula for your little one, it's essential to consider the quality and safety of the product. European baby formulas are renowned for their high standards and strict regulations, making them a healthier choice compared to American formulas. Let's delve into the reasons why.

ingredient regulations

European regulations have stricter guidelines when it comes to ingredients used in baby formulas. European Union regulations ban the use of certain additives, such as genetically modified organisms (GMOs), artificial sweeteners, corn syrups, and synthetic growth hormones. These regulations prioritize the use of natural and organic ingredients, ensuring a healthier and safer option for your baby.

HiPP: Metafolin® vs Folate

All baby formulas require the inclusion of folate (Vitamin B9). Folate is essential, and is used by the body to form normal red blood cells and certain amino acids. Most baby formulas use synthetic folic acid which needs to undergo enzymatic activation in order to be absorbed.

Many babies lack the ability to sufficiently absorb adequate amounts of Folate.

Unique to HiPP formulas is Metafolin®, which is derived from the naturally occurring folate form (5-MTHF) found in human breastmilk. Metafolin® is universally absorbable, and all babies can immediately utilize Metafolin® without the need for processing. This makes it readily available and gentler on the stomach

no corn syrups

Unlike many American baby formulas, European formulas do not contain corn syrup as a sweetener. Corn syrup has been linked to various health issues, including obesity and diabetes. European formulas use lactose and other mild starches as the primary carbohydrate source, which is easier for babies to digest and provides a more natural source of energy.

Animal welfare - no chemicals

The farms that HiPP and Holle use to source their organic milk ensure high standards of animal welfare.

For example, animals on Demeter-certified farms are treated with respect and care, allowing for natural behaviors. This includes access to the outdoors, humane living conditions, and organic, natural feed. The use of preventive antibiotics, pesticides, herbicides and synthetic hormones are strictly prohibited.

These strict standards ensure that the formulas are free from harmful substances, providing a safer and healthier option for your baby's delicate system.

stringent quality control

European baby formulas undergo rigorous testing and quality control measures to ensure they meet the highest standards. The European Union has strict regulations in place for the production, packaging, and labeling of baby formulas. This means you can have peace of mind knowing that the formula you choose for your baby has undergone thorough testing and meets the highest safety and quality standards.

the best choice for your baby

Overall, European baby formulas are a healthier choice for your little one compared to American formulas. Their strict regulations on ingredients, avoidance of harmful additives, and rigorous quality control measures make them a safer and more reliable option. When it comes to your baby's nutrition, it's crucial to choose a formula that prioritizes their health and well-being.
