Allergies to certain foods are caused by the body’s reaction to the protein component of a food. The DHA and ARA in Baby’s Only Organic® Dairy with DHA Formula are sourced from egg yolk phospholipids, the fat component of the egg yolk. As an extra precaution, this product is tested egg allergen free by a third party laboratory. Most often an egg allergy is caused by the egg white, the major protein portion of an egg, rather than the yolk.
Because only the fat or phospholipids (not protein) portion of the egg yolk is used and also because of the high quality and purity of the egg lecithin used, this product is free of egg allergen. If a child has a history of food allergies, consultation with the child’s healthcare provider is always recommended before use of any new food including Baby’s Only Organic® Dairy with DHA Formula.
