Holle offers organic cow and goat milk formulas. The latter designed especially for babies sensitive to lactose but not wholly intolerant. Holle's formulas are free from artificial growth hormones, antibiotics, and other synthetic substances, ensuring your newborn gets the most natural and wholesome nutrition. Let's dive into what makes Holle formulas so special and why it's the right choice for your baby's nutrition. We have done all the research about Holle, so you don't have to! ;)

Holle: The History

Holle Logo

Let's take a little trip back in time to 1933 when Holle was born. It's a Swiss-based company that's been active in the baby formula market for over 85 years. Holle is committed to providing formulas that all carry the Demeter label (a biodynamic farming certification), making quality formulas carrying only wholesome ingredients. And guess what? They've never used preservatives in any of their products – talk about keeping it natural!


What Sets Holle Apart?

One thing that makes Holle unique is its Demeter Certification and Biodynamic farming. This means the ingredients in the Holle formulas are grown using biodynamic farming techniques. Cows bred on Demeter-certified farms can graze freely on carefully managed pastures and are not dehorned. Not only is dehorning inhumane, but it is also unhealthy for the cow (A cow's horn plays an important role in metabolism and digestion.) Cows raised on Demeter-certified farms are never treated with antibiotics and are not given hormones. Demeter-certified dairies must also follow a strict manufacturing process to keep ingredients as pure as possible. Due to the high standards of the Demeter organization, milk from Demeter, a raised cow, has a high amount of vitamin E and beta-carotene and tastes delicious!

Biodynamic farming? It's all about keeping the whole ecosystem healthy and happy. No chemicals or synthetic pesticides are used, just natural practices like composting and crop rotation. It's like a big hug for Mother Nature! Nice to check out: Holle recently launched their brand new website

Nutrients In Holle Baby Formulas

Holle formulas are packed with essential nutrients that support your baby's growth and development. Let's look at the essential nutrients:


Holle Organic Formula contains healthy fats for your little ones' brain and nervous system development. The balance of fats in Holle Organic Formula ensures your newborn gets the proper nutrients for healthy growth.


Holle formulas contain lactose, the main carbohydrate found in breast milk. This type of carbohydrate is essential for your baby's energy and overall development. The European Commission has higher standards than the US, and Holle formulas contain 30% lactose, which is vital for babies. 


Protein is essential for babies, and Holle formulas provide the ideal balance of whey and casein proteins, both crucial for healthy growth. Holle uses organic milk from grass-fed cows, making their protein content healthier and more sustainable.
