Great organic formula ingredients
All the agricultural ingredients of the products in our shop originate exclusively from organic farming.
Additionally, all of our offered products are certified by organic associations like Bioland, Demeter or Naturland. Their regulations are more comprehensive and strict than the legal requirements. These associations can be seen as the guardians of organic formula ingredients.
Only organic cows have it as good as the Milka cow. Animals (cows, sheep) from conventional farms can only dream of fatty grass. In overcrowded stables they are given concentrated feed (with medication), and most of them do not see a pasture during their lifetime.
But it is exactly the grass that makes the milk so valuable. The milk from organic livestock shows up to 60 percent more healthy omega-3 fatty acids. These can protect against cardiovascular diseases, as many studies have shown.
The milk is constantly monitored throughout the production process. Toxic residues and drug remnants do not occur in any way.
However, there are chemical residues in conventional milk, because the udders of cows, for example, quickly become inflamed. This is why farmers mix antibiotics into their fodder every day as a preventive measure. These medicines are intended to prevent the inflammation.
No antibiotics are detected in organic milk. This is because organic farmers do completely without chemicals and use plant medicines.
Explanation of the organic formula ingredients
Palm oil is the most widely used vegetable oil in food industry. In order to achieve a fatty acid pattern close to that of breast milk, mixtures of vegetable oils are used in infant formulas. Palm oil is the only vegetable oil that is rich in palmitic acid (32-57%).
Palmitic acid is the predominant saturated fatty acid in breast milk (about 26% of total fatty acids). This means that it is classified as safe for your baby. In order to imitate the fatty acid pattern of breast milk as closely as possible, the use of palm oil as a source of palmitic acid makes sense.
Maltodextrin is a mixture of sugar components and is usually obtained from corn starch. It has little taste of its own and is easy to process. In contrast to conventional sugar, maltodextrin tastes less sweet, making it ideal for use in baby formula. It is easily digestible and well tolerated, which makes it ideal for use in baby formula.
The use of maltrodextrin in formula for infants is considered safe.
Whey is a raw material that is left over from the production of cheese or curd. It is increasingly used in the beverage industry. Although the milky-watery liquid is a side product, it contains a lot of valuable nutrients.
Starch is a carbohydrate, which is produced by linking many building blocks of glucose. Starch is only produced by plants.
Skimmed milk powder is a milk dry product made from skimmed milk by drying. Around 7 litres of milk are needed to produce 1 kilogram of skimmed milk powder, which is reduced to a powder by a long drying process.
Skimmed milk powder contains around 36% protein and 52% lactose. Milk powder retains the valuable ingredients of milk.
Milk sugar – also called lactose – is a natural sugar found in cow’s milk and also in breast milk. Lactose is broken down relatively slowly compared to the usual household sugar and can therefore reach deeper parts of the intestine where it has a positive effect. Lactose gently regulates the digestion.
The lactose is partially fermented bacterially in the intestine. The resulting lactic acid ensures a healthy intestinal flora and at the same time stimulates intestinal motor activity. Lactose also promotes the absorption of calcium and zinc from the intestine.
Calcium carbonate affects, among other things, the excitability of muscle cells. Thus it can protect against cramps. The body also incorporates calcium from calcium carbonate into teeth and bones.
Calcium carbonate also neutralises stomach acid, which reduces flatulence.
Potassium is one of the minerals on which the organism is urgently dependent. Among other things, it plays an important role in the determination of nerve impulses and the control of muscles, including the heart muscles. In combination with sodium, potassium chloride ensures a healthy water balance.
Occurs in nature in pure form and prevents the baby formula from lumping.
As a salt of citric acid, sodium citrate is part of the energy metabolism and thus of every living cell. It also prevents foods, especially those with many fatty acids, from spoiling quickly.
L-tryptophan is a vital amino acid and is essential for our body. This means that it cannot produce it itself and therefore it must be taken in with food.
L-tryptophan belongs to the 21 proteinogenic amino acids that are needed for protein synthesis in the human body.
Iron (lactate) has many functions in the body. The most important are: the transport of oxygen from the lungs to the tissues, storage of oxygen in the muscles, the transfer of electrons in the energy metabolism. It is also a component of various enzymes.
Pantothenic acid is a water-soluble vitamin and belongs to the group of B vitamins. As a component of coenzyme A, it helps to convert the food consumed into energy that can be used by the body.
Niacin belongs to the group of water-soluble B vitamins. However, it is not a vitamin in the classic sense, as it can be produced by the human body itself, from the amino acid tryptophan (in the liver).
