What’s in the Whole Nutrition Infant Formula?Updated 3 months ago

Our signature formula is informed by breast milk’s recipe: Protein is the one of the biggest gaps between breast milk and formula today, so we patented our own protein blend with the two most abundant proteins found in breast milk–Alpha-Lactalbumin and Lactoferrin–plus broken down proteins for easy digestion, and an 80:20 whey to casein ratio that most closely mirrors colostrum, or early breast milk. We are the first infant formula in the US to include organic, grass-fed whole milk—because breast milk doesn’t skim its fats, so neither do we. Finally, our carbs come from organic lactose, a key component of breast milk that’s important for baby. We leave out “filler” glucose carbs like corn syrup and maltodextrin that are often used in other formulas.

What’s equally important to all of the nutritious ingredients we put into our formula, though, are the ones we’ve kept out, specifically: soy, corn syrup, gluten, maltodextrin, skim milk, palm oil, artificial growth hormones*, and hexane-extracted DHA.

* No significant difference has been shown between milk derived from rbST-treated and non-rbST-treated cows
