The protein source in Baby's Only® Organic Sensitive DHA/ARA Toddler Formula is organic milk protein concentrate. Organic milk protein concentrate is produced from organic skim milk through a process involving filtration, evaporation and drying. The process used to make this protein source reduces lactose and involves no harsh chemicals. Organic milk protein concentrate is also pasteurized to assure that the product contains no pathogenic organisms. The organic skim milk used is from organic dairy herds that do not receive any antibiotics or growth hormone stimulants. Another feature of organic milk protein concentrate is it retains a nice amount of calcium from the organic skim milk thus helping to meet a child’s calcium needs for growing bones.
The carbohydrate source in Baby's Only® Organic Sensitive DHA/ARA Toddler Formula is organic brown rice syrup. We selected organic brown rice syrup to add to our formula to bring the carbohydrate level to the required amount versus other carbohydrate ingredients such as lactose, sucrose (table sugar) or corn syrup because rice is often one of the first solid foods introduced to a child. Also, this carbohydrate is less sweet than sucrose (table sugar) and some corn syrups. Rice is gluten free. Baby's Only® Organic Sensitive DHA/ARA Toddler Formula does not contain any sucrose (table sugar) or corn syrup.
The fat sources in Baby's Only® Organic Sensitive DHA/ARA Toddler Formula includes organic canola oil, organic high oleic sunflower and/or organic high oleic safflower oil, organic linoleic sunflower oil, and organic coconut oil. This blend of oils ensures that Baby's Only® Organic Sensitive DHA/ARA Toddler Formula contains all of the essential fatty acids needed by a baby to ensure proper growth and development.
Essential fatty acids are needed from the diet because the body cannot make them and they must come from the foods we eat. In addition to the provision of the essential fatty acids from the oil blend used in Baby's Only® Organic Sensitive DHA/ARA Toddler Formula, this formula also contains the non-essential fatty acids DHA and ARA. Although the body can make these non-essential fatty acids from the essential fatty acids and although there are no requirements on the addition of DHA and ARA to formulas, some healthcare professionals and parents prefer to have these in baby’s formula.
Vitamin and Minerals
Baby's Only® Organic Sensitive DHA/ARA Toddler Formula meets the nutrient requirements for vitamins and minerals as required by the U.S. Infant Formula Act.
