    Why choose HiPP HA Combiotioc formula for your baby?

    Ingredients in HiPP Hypoallergenic Formula | Organic's Best

    Backed by over 25 years of research and extensive evaluation, the HiPP hypoallergenic formula range has been shown to help babies who are prone to allergic reactions by delivering essential nutrients in a gentle and well-tolerated formulation.

    More specifically, this hypoallergenic formula is made with a base of easy-to-digest milk proteins and enriched with valuable prebiotics and probiotics that work together to support your baby's gut microbiome.

    This combination ultimately serves to help strengthen your baby's immune system and minimize the potential for allergenic activity. This formula powder is also free from common allergens, including gluten, soy, nuts, and eggs.

    Beyond working to reduce allergic reactions, HiPP HA is made to provide little ones with clean and pure nutrition. That means this formula is non-GMO and has no artificial additives. It is also free from corn syrup and other added sugars. 

    Is HiPP HA Good for Milk Protein Allergy?

    If allergies run in the family, HiPP HA baby formula may be a suitable alternative when breastfeeding is not an option. A hypoallergenic baby formula based on extensively hydrolyzed protein can be effective in helping reduce allergic responses in infants. However, since every baby is unique, so are their dietary needs. Therefore, it is important to approach the process of finding your baby a fitting feeding solution with caution.

    If your baby has been diagnosed with a cow's milk protein allergy (CMPA) or if you suspect that they might have this allergy, then HiPP HA formula may not be suitable for them. Thus, before trying out this product, we recommend that you consult your pediatrician or healthcare provider to see whether HiPP hypoallergenic formula is the right fit for your baby.

    Next, we will explore further how the special milk protein in this baby formula is thoughtfully crafted to support your sensitive baby!

    Extensive Hydrolysis and Low-Allergen Milk

    Some extra-sensitive babies may experience discomfort because their tummies are unable to properly digest the milk in regular baby formula, and that's where HiPP HA Combiotic comes into play! HiPP hypoallergenic Combiotic formula is made with low-allergen cow's milk to ensure your baby's ease of digestion.

    To achieve this, HiPP HA Combiotic uses a specialized processing technique to create extensively hydrolyzed milk protein. In more simple terms, the milk used in this baby formula is broken down into smaller components that are gentler on sensitive stomachs and less likely to be recognized as allergens by your little one's immune system. This hydrolyzed formula is based on whey protein hydrolysate, which is broken down to at least 85% of its original size.

    Due to the special processing that hydrolyzed formula undergoes, emulsifying agents are needed to keep the formula stable. For this, HiPP uses citric acid esters of mono- and diglycerides from fatty acids. Citric acid esters also act as antioxidants and help improve the texture of the milk, making it more enjoyable for babies.

    HiPP HA Combiotic: Dutch VS German

    The HiPP hypoallergenic formula line is available in both German and Dutch variations. This way, parents can be assured that they are nourishing their babies with a top-quality baby formula that is in compliance with each respective country's legal regulations.

    It's important to note that the recipe remains identical for both HiPP HA Combiotic formulas. The key difference between the two versions is that HiPP HA Dutch is contained in 800g tins, whereas HiPP HA German comes in 600g boxes. While both formulas are manufactured in Germany, HiPP HA Dutch is packaged in the Netherlands and HiPP German is packaged in Germany.

    As a final point of distinction, HiPP German is available in Stages PRE to 2, and HiPP Dutch is only offered in HiPP HA Stage 1 and 2. We will walk you through the different stages of HiPP HA in the following sections!

    The Different Stages of HiPP Hypoallergenic Formulas

    HiPP HA Formula Stages Explained | Organic's Best

    HiPP's formula is crafted to accompany your baby throughout their journey of growth and development, so every stage of the hypoallergenic formula is packed with all the nutrients and vitamins your baby would need at a given age. Keep reading to discover what the stages of HiPP HA are and when they are suitable to offer your little one.

    HiPP HA Stage PRE - Infant Formula

    As mentioned, HiPP HA Stage PRE is only available in the German version, though this formula has the same composition as HiPP HA Stage 1 in the Dutch range. Stage PRE is specifically formulated for newborn babies between 0 and 6 months of age and acts as a complement or substitute for breast milk.

    HiPP HA Stage PRE is expertly crafted to have lower lactose content, making it suitable for babies with lactose sensitivities but not intolerances. It is also designed to be as close to breast milk as possible, so this HiPP formula is fully lactose-based with no added starch or maltodextrin.

    Some parents have reported that HiPP Stage PRE has helped to alleviate allergic reactions such as skin rashes and stomach problems (constipation, bloating, and gas), as well as colic-like symptoms commonly associated with babies who are experiencing discomfort.

    HiPP HA Stage 1 - Infant Formula

    Like Stage PRE, HiPP HA Stage 1 is designed to complement or substitute breastfeeding for bottle-fed newborns between 0 and 6 months of age. HiPP Stage 1 is available in both the HiPP Dutch formula line and the German one. Lactose, which is naturally found in milk, is the main carbohydrate in the HiPP HA Stage 1 infant formula powder.

    HiPP HA Formula Stage 2 - Follow-On Formula

    HiPP HA Stage 2 is suitable for babies between 6 and 12 months of age and is a great alternative to or supplement for breast milk. Unlike the earlier stages of HiPP Hypoallergenic baby formula, HiPP HA Stage 2 is intended to be used alongside a mixed diet of weaning foods and bottle feeding, as babies are introduced to solid foods.

    It is important to note that many babies commonly grow out of certain allergies, such as milk protein allergies (CMPA), by the time they reach 1 year of age. So once your little one hits 12 months, you may wish to discuss your feeding options with your pediatrician.

    What makes HiPP hypoallergenic formula stand out?

    HiPP's HA formula is meticulously crafted with gentle, easy-to-digest ingredients that offer a complete source of nutrition for little ones. Beyond the hydrolyzed protein which we've discussed, HiPP HA Combiotic formulas contain valuable minerals, vitamins, fatty acids, prebiotics and probiotics to support your baby's growth and development. Let's delve deeper into these ingredients now:

    Probiotics and prebiotics for a healthy immune system and happy tummy

    HiPP HA formulas are rich in prebiotics and probiotics, which are used to help promote healthy digestion. Probiotics are beneficial bacteria that live in our gut microbiome, and prebiotics are the dietary fibers that help probiotics to flourish by supplying them with energy.

    The natural lactic acid culture probiotics in HiPP Combiotic HA formula are, in fact, originally extracted from real breast milk! The prebiotics, on the other hand, are galactooligosaccharides(GOS), which are present in lactose.

    Prebiotics and probiotics aid the body in maintaining a healthy gut microbiota, all while contributing to the overall health of the digestive and immune systems. This is especially important for babies who are more vulnerable to allergies.

    Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids for brain and eye health

    To supply your baby with all the fatty acids they need for healthy cognitive development and visual acuity, the formula contains DHA (Omega-3) from fish oil and ALA (Omega-6) sourced from Mortierella alpina oil.

    Vegetable oils as a source of healthy fats

    HiPP hypoallergenic formula contains a rich blend of seed and vegetable oils such as palm oil, rapeseed oil, and sunflower oil. HiPP HA is made with a base of skimmed hydrolyzed milk proteins, which means that some of the natural fats present in milk have been removed during processing. As such, this blend of oils helps provide a fatty acid spectrum similar to breast milk and offers your baby important healthy fats.

    Vitamins and minerals for essential nourishment

    HiPP HA is fortified with all the necessary vitamins and minerals that your growing baby needs to thrive. This includes vital nutrients such as Vitamin C, Vitamin D, Vitamin E, iron sulfate, sodium hydroxide, and calcium carbonate, amongst other essential vitamins and minerals.
