EU organic certified – Holle developed a range of goat milk formulas that are European certified organic. This means that the formulas are free of many ingredients that you unfortunately do find in lots of non-organic baby formulas. The goat milk formulas are:
- Similar to breastmilk – Goat milk formulas contain oligosaccharides similar to breastmilk. Oligosaccharides act as prebiotics which can make digestion easier due to healthy gut flora.

Milk protein allergy vs intolerance
An important note to make is that a cow’s milk allergy is not the same as a milk protein intolerance. An allergy is much more severe and affects less than 5% of the population
. Symptoms such as frequent spit up, vomiting, diarrhea, blood in stool or swelling (especially) of the mouth and throat could indicate an allergy. If you expect an allergy to milk protein always consult your pediatrician before you make any changes to your baby or toddlers diet. An intolerance to lactose (milk protein) in babies can cause symptoms such as:
- Failure to thrive and gain weight
- Spitting up
Milk intolerance can occur when a baby is not able to digest the sugar in milk (lactose). As goat milk contains a lower about of lactose compared to cow’s milk your baby might tolerate this formula better.
