  • Breast Milk: The Ideal Inspiration for Formula

    No Starch or Maltodextrin: Starch and maltodextrin are both complex carbohydrates. While these ingredients are used in organic infant formula to make the texture of the milk more creamy and provide a feeling of satiation to babies, they can be more difficult for some little ones to digest. However, HiPP Dutch is based solely on organic lactose, which makes it a gentler alternative.

    Omega 3 (DHA) & Omega 6 (ALA): In HiPP Dutch, essential fatty acids are an integral part of the formulation. This is because the nutrients alpha-lipoic acid (ALA), which comes from Mortierella alpina oil, and Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) cultivated from fish oil, work together to ensure the healthy development of your baby's eyes and brain.

    No Added Sugars: HiPP Dutch formula uses breast milk as its prime example of excellent infant nutrition. Organic lactose, also known as milk sugar, is the main source of carbs in human milk. With this in mind HiPP formula only uses lactose as a naturally occurring form of sugar in their milk and skips out on the extra added sugars and artificial sweeteners you may find in some conventional formulas.

    GMO-Free: All HiPP formulas are made without the inclusion of genetically modified organisms (GMOs). This is true of their organic and non-organic offerings.

    No Soy: HiPP Dutch formulas are soy-free. This is because pediatricians advise against the inclusion of soy in an infant's diet unless deemed medically necessary.

    Organic Skim Milk Baby Formula

    It's no secret that happy cows make the best milk. Knowing this, HiPP places a great emphasis on the welfare of their animals. HiPP's cows are raised on natural pastures where chemical pesticide use is strictly prohibited. The cows also have the freedom to graze out in the fields and enjoy the fresh air.

    This environment leads to the production of high-quality organic whey and organic skim milk, which HiPP Dutch formulas use as their main ingredients. However, HiPP Dutch toddler formulas do not use added whey protein in Stages 3 and 4 to ensure age-appropriate protein levels for young children.

    Additionally, it should be noted that HiPP Dutch HA and other specialty baby formulas from HiPP are non-organic and uniquely crafted to cater to the dietary and health needs of infants; thus, they have different milk bases. HiPP Dutch Stage 4 is also non-organic. 

    Finally, lactose, which is a natural sugar present in milk, is what HiPP Dutch formula uses as an important source of energy for your growing baby. Not only does lactose help fuel growth and development, it also contributes to the growth of beneficial gut bacteria.

    Organic Vegetable Oils

    Skimmed milk is a type of milk in which the cream has been removed. Given that cream is a source of fat and healthy fats are an essential component of infant nutrition, HiPP has to replace milk fats, and for this, they use organic vegetable oils like organic rapeseed oil as well as palm and sunflower oil. This helps to make the fat content of HiPP formulas more similar to breast milk!

    Prebiotics & Probiotics

    Breast milk naturally contains immune-boosting components like prebiotics and probiotics. Prebiotics are fibers that feed healthy bacteria in our gut, known as probiotics. Together, they help support immunity and digestive health. HiPP uses both of these nutrients in their Dutch formula range.

    Vitamins and Minerals

    All baby formula powder follows strict European regulations for infant nutrition. That means the milk must be enriched with a variety of vitamins and minerals deemed essential to the health of your little one.

    Here are just a few examples of some of the key micronutrients in HiPP Dutch formula:

    • Calcium chloride and vitamin D contribute to the growth of healthy bones.

    • Magnesium sulfate helps with vitamin D and calcium absorption.

    • Vitamin C offers immune support, acts as an antioxidant and supports collagen production.

    • Zinc sulfate performs various functions, including supporting immunity and the functioning of sensory organs.

    • Sodium citrate helps regulate nerve and muscle function.

    Difference Between HiPP Dutch Stages

    Did you know that the nutritional needs of your baby change with age? While breast milk is a dynamic fluid that naturally adapts to accommodate these requirements, European baby formula is offered in different stages instead. Each stage offers slight compositional changes that are designed to satisfy different development needs. Let's look at the unique features of HiPP Dutch Stage 1, 2, 3, and 4.

    HiPP Dutch Stage 1

    HiPP Dutch Stage 1 is suitable as your baby's first infant formula beginning from birth. It acts as a complete source of nutrition for babies under 6 months of age and can replace or be a supplement to breastfeeding.

    HiPP Dutch Stage 2

    Stage 2 of HiPP Dutch formula is intended for babies 6 months old and up. This follow-on milk is specifically designed to be fed in addition to a diet of solid foods once your little one has begun weaning. Compared to HiPP Dutch Stage 1, this formula has increased levels of iron sulfate.

    HiPP Dutch Stage 3

    HiPP Dutch Stage 3 is a toddler formula for little ones from 12 months. This stage of formula removes whey protein from the ingredients to support your baby's transition to a family diet. It also contains less fat, lactose, and calories than stage 2. Ultimately, it's closer to plain cow's milk than baby formula but fortified with additional vitamins and minerals.

    HiPP Dutch Stage 4

    HiPP Dutch Stage 4 is for toddlers 24+ months. Did you know that some toddlers need as much as 7 times more vitamin D than adults? To satisfy this need, Stage 4 contains 2.9 micrograms per 100ml of prepared formula!
