There are thousands of different opinions out there when it comes to the best milk formula for your baby. At Organic Baby Food Shop we offer a wide range of both organic cow milk formulas and organic goat milk formulas for all stages. In order to help you choose which formula to try, we looked into the facts to help you make the decision.
We are all aware by now that breastmilk is the best milk for our infants. When infants are no longer or only partially breastfeeding, instant formulas such as Holle Organic Instant Formulas are the only safe and suitable alternative. Cow's Milk is a rich source of calcium which builds strong teeth and bones helps muscles control and blood clotting. Enough calcium can help prevent high blood pressure, stroke, colon cancer later in your baby’s life. Cows Milk is also good sources of vitamin D, which is essential for bone growth, and provides protein and carbohydrates to ensure you baby has enough energy for the day.
Holle Organic Infant formula with cow’s milk are supplemented with all the necessary nutritional components such as: calcium carbonate, potassium chloride, sodium chloride, vitamin C, vitamin E, ferrous lactate, zinc sulphate, niacin, calcium-D'Pantothenate, copper sulphate, vitamin A, vitamin B1, vitamin B6, manganese sulphate, potassium iodate, folic acid, vitamin K, sodium selenate, vitamin D. Essential nutrients for a healthy baby!
Some babies might have difficulties to digest cows milk, in which case Goat’s Milk is a great alternative as the fat globules in goat's milk are easier to digest containing a higher proportion of short and medium-chain fatty acids. While both cow's milk and goat's milk contain the sugar lactose, goat's milk contains slightly less (4.1 percent versus 4.7 percent in cow's milk). It's possible that this is a slight advantage for infants who are lactose intolerant. Goat’s milk is a rich source of nutrients. Holle’s Organic Instant Formula has a unique composition that, as all Holle products exclude: added sugar or corn syrup, gluten, soy, genetic engineering, preservatives.
While the vitamin and mineral content of goat and cow's milk are quite similar, goat milk contains more calcium, vitamine B6, vitamin A and potassium, while cow's milk contains more vitamin B12 much more folic acid. It seems if your baby is not lactose intolerant, both milks can be a very good and healthy alternative to breastmilk, just make sure you are feeding your baby the best available products on the market.
