HiPP Combiotic formula provides your baby with all the nutrients it needs to have a healthy start in life. HiPP is Germany's number one organic formula brand and is well known for its usage of actual breast milk probiotic bacteria in its formula to produce a product as close to actual breast milk as possible.
Depending on the HiPP (country) version it may start with Stage 1 for freshly born babies or even include a Stage Pre version that applies to the same age but has a slightly different composition. This brand is the most popular infant formula and baby food brand in Germany.
Hipp baby formula’s history dates back to 1898, when Josef the hippy confectioner from Güntsburg had a daughter and then twins a year later. Everything was fine for him until Joseph's wife began to have problems with breast milk, the woman was clearly not able to feed all of their children. So Josef decided to make a formula himself for his children.
He baked dry cookies, ground them up and prepared a special mixture based on cow's milk. To his delight, the children were satisfied with its taste. Having succeeded in feeding his own children, he began to sell flour made from rusks, and this brought him a considerable income.
And already in 1932, Josef's son Georg HIPP opens his own baby formula company and dedicates his life to it. On the whole, HIPP is a family business that is handed down from father to son and improved on with each generation. In 1967, for example, Klaus Heep introduces organic production technology.
Today, HIPP has more than 6,000 organic farms. They are engaged in the production of products with the highest quality, while maintaining harmony with nature. Only organic milk is used to make HIPP baby formula. The cows graze on special fields and receive only grains harvested from certified land as feed.
HIPP has the EU ORGANIC seal of organic quality, which guarantees that the products are marked with this seal, grown on a farm that:
- Uses only untreated seed;
- Uses preventive measures to protect plants;
- Keeps livestock according to breed and species;
- Completely renounces the use of mineral nitrogen fertilizers.
HIPP baby formulas are divided according to the age of the baby, because different amounts of minerals and trace elements are necessary for certain periods of development.
From the birth, you can use the dry milk formula HIPP Combiotic PRE, HIPP Combiotic 1, HIPP ORGANIC, from 6 months of age you can use formula stage 2, from 10-12 months, you can switch to formula stage 3, and when your baby is 18 months old, you can use HIPP junior Combiotic.
There are also different versions of the HIPP product line: HIPP Formula German, HIPP Dutch, HIPP UK Formula. Since each country has its own rules and requirements for baby food, these formulas differ from each other. For example, some countries prefer and use certain ingredients in their milk formulas, while others do not even tolerate them. Because of this, the HIPP brand focuses on the needs of each individual and nation in particular.
Each range of infant formula from all three sources offers the best nutrition for your baby with a quality guarantee. All infant formulas contain nutrients such as iron and calcium, which help support proper infant nutrition. HiPP German and HiPP Dutch add probiotics and prebiotics in several of their stages. All HiPP formulas use organic cow's or goat's milk fat, not synthetic fillers.

The formula also includes Lactobacillus fermentum CECT 5716, which helps protect the immune system and protects against infections.
HiPP Anti-Reflux formula helps with regurgitation and vomiting. Thanks to the addition of a natural carob fruit thickener, the density of the formula increases, so food is better retained in the stomach and vomiting and regurgitation (reflux) are reduced.
