At Holle, baby formula is manufactured using a holistic approach. This helps ensure the welfare of babies, but also our environment, the workers involved in the production process, and animals! To rise to such high standards of excellence, rigorous safety measures are implemented to guarantee the best quality nutrition of their products.

Why Choose Holle Organic Formula?

As a parent, you want the best for your baby. That's why when it comes to feeding your child, you want to make sure you're giving them top-notch nutrition. Holle understands the importance of clean ingredients. That’s why the milk in their formulas is sourced from cows raised on organic and biodynamic farms that prioritize animal welfare practices.

In terms of composition, you can feel confident knowing your baby's formula was created using chemical-free agricultural practices and contains no GMOs. Holle aims to keep their products as pure as possible which is why they skip out on more controversial ingredients like added sugars or artificial flavors, colors, and preservatives. With Holle, you can be sure you’re giving your baby the best nutrition, with none of the worries!

Holle Formula Production and Quality Assurance

Holle sources their raw ingredients from biodynamic and organic farms, and whenever possible these ingredients are sourced regionally. Holle has established trusting relationships with their farmers which helps them to maintain ingredient traceability and safety.

Holle strives to cultivate their ingredients without exploiting animals or the environment. Instead, they prioritize quality and biodiversity over quantity and monocultures. They also prohibit the use of growth stimulants and for their Demeter-quality ingredients, they use organic compost as a natural fertilizer.

Once raw ingredients are obtained, they are handled delicately and processed gently to preserve their beneficial natural qualities. Holle formulas are manufactured on the border between Germany and Switzerland, with the packaging taking place in Austria.

Holle is dedicated to ensuring quality and products are tested and monitored from the farm to delivery. They perform analyses for residues and check raw ingredients and final products for contaminants. You'll be happy to know that in Europe, products for little ones 3 years of age or under are subject to special contaminant checks and must meet stricter limits than conventional products.

Holle Formula Ingreidents

Holle organic baby formula is made from organic milk which is then enriched with vegetable oils, essential fatty acids, vitamins, and minerals to meet the nutritional needs of your growing baby. Their organic formula is free of GMOs, added sugars, preservatives, and artificial flavors.

In case you're still a newbie to European formula, it comes in different stages to reflect the natural changes in breast milk throughout nursing to best suit babies' changing nutritional needs. Infant formula is for babies 0 - 6 months, follow-on formula is for babies 6+ months to 10+ or 12+ months depending on the brand, and toddler formula is for little tots 12 months and up!

Holle Cow's Milk Formulas

If you're a fan of traditional cow's milk-based formulas, you'll be glad to hear that Holle produces two different organic formula ranges based on cow's milk: a standard organic cow's milk range and an A2 organic cow's milk range which we'll discuss more in depth below!

Standard Cow Milk Formula

The standard Holle cow formula holds the Demeter certification for stages PRE through 4 and is made with a base of skimmed cow milk. Demeter farmers allow their cows to roam more freely, they are fed only organic feed, and cruel dehorning practices are prohibited.

Holle Cow's Milk Formula Stages Include:

- Holle Stage PRE Infant Formula (0 to 6 months)

- Holle Stage 1 Infant Formula (0 to 6 months)

- Holle Stage 2 Follow-On Formula (6+ months)

- Holle Stage 3 Follow-On Formula (10+ months)

- Holle Stage 4 Toddler Formula (12+ months)

Holle A2 Organic Formula

Holle's A2 organic formula is an alternative to standard cow's milk-based formula and may be better tolerated by little one's with sensitive digestive systems. Most of the standard cow's milk today is comprised of A2 and A1 milk proteins.

However, at one point, all cows produced only A2 milk until a gene mutation caused the introduction of A1 milk. When A1 milk is digested, it releases a bioactive fragment known as BCM-7 which may cause non-beneficial bodily effects. Holle's A2 milk formula contains a unique blend of milk proteins sourced from specially selected cows that naturally produce milk with only the A2 protein and no A1 proteins.

This A2 milk doesn't release BCM-7 when broken down and thus, may be more gentle on your baby's tummy. No matter which milk you opt for, standard or A2, they taste the same and contain all the important nutrients that your baby needs!

Holle A2 Cow's Milk Formula Stages Include:

- Holle Stage 1 Infant Formula (0 to 6 months)

- Holle Stage 2 Follow-On Formula (6+ months)

- Holle Stage 3 Follow-On Formula (10+ months)
