Holle Organic Baby Formula

Breast milk is the most healthy food for a baby beginning from birth. This is why Holle recommends breastfeeding. If a mother is unable to breastfeed, the company’s formula will provide complete organic nutrients that can fully substitute breast milk.

Holle organic formula contains only raw ingredients and does not allow any chemicals or preservatives, flavoring, coloring, added salt, or refined sugar.

General Questions

Holle organic formula certification

You probably notice the Demeter label that the Holle formula carries, but have you ever wondered what Demeter stands for? Demeter certification system is used to verify that products are grown by biodynamic methods. Besides being organic, Holle baby food also has an additional Demeter certification, thus guaranteeing even higher quality levels in growing and processing ingredients. That is why the Demeter logo and the EU-Eco logo on the packaging prove that the company ensures the best possible product safety from the start.

Holle formula production

Since the Demeter certification requires obtaining ingredients from biodynamic farms located in Germany, Holle formulas are produced on the border between Germany and Switzerland. All products are made from biologically and biodynamically grown ingredients, which means:

  • natural cultivation without violence and exploitation of animals, land, and the environment;
  • preference is always given to quality over quantity;
  • biodiversity instead of monocultures;
  • animals are kept in their natural environment;
  • refusal from chemical fertilizers and insecticides, hormones and growth stimulants of animals at all stages of processing;
  • natural compost is used for fertilization.

Holle goat milk formula

Differently from many organic manufacturers, the company provides Holle formula based on goat milk for those having issues with cow’s protein digestion or allergic anamnesis.The fat molecules in goat milk are smaller than those in cow milk, and it is more easily digested by both adults and babies. It is still extremely rich in calcium and nutrients for strengthening the bones and joint health.

Goat-milk based baby food is full of nutrients, amino acid tryptophan, so it is great for the nervous and digestive systems as well as for physical infants' development.

Holle cow milk-based formula

Holle formula includes A2 beta-casein protein for easy absorption. Unlike goat milk formulas, there is ​palm oil, and DNA derived from fish oil in the composition of the cow milk-based food. Holle infant milk is as close to breast milk as possible without a bitter taste.

In the US, most infant milk isn’t divided by age, while the Holle formula is categorized according to a child’s growth and age. This means you can have more control over your child’s diet. Here is the stages' breakdown:

  • Stage 2 — from 6 to 10 months

Ingredients included in Holle formula

Carefully selected and grown ingredients are a must-have and, fortunately, the selection of ingredients in Holle formula meets all requirements needed for a baby's health.


Lactose is a carbohydrate found in breast milk that is broken down into the small intestine into glucose and galactose — the main suppliers of energy and brain tissue formation. Lactose in baby food serves as the main carbohydrate. It is necessary for the assimilation of such important trace elements as calcium and is also one of the main sources of energy received during digestion.


Maltodextrin is used as a thickener for food in the stomach of a child, which prevents it from regurgitation. Maltodextrin is a carbohydrate that is easily broken down by the baby's organism into glucose. It is the same energy source as milk sugar lactose, which is needed for muscles, all organs to work actively. 

Palm Oil

Palm oil is saturated nonessential fatty acids, in particular palmitic acid, which serves as the main component of human breast milk fat. The palm oil used in baby food goes through many stages of processing and control, which increases the benefit of palm oil in baby food compared to other products.

Prebiotics and Probiotics

Probiotics have a beneficial effect on the child's organism, forming a full-fledged barrier of the intestinal mucosa. Prebiotics are indigestible food components that stimulate the growth and activity of certain strains of bacteria in the colon.


It is the main carbohydrate-polysaccharide of plants that is present in cereals, legumes, vegetables, and fruits. Once in the kid's organism, it turns into glucose, which is one of the most important sources of energy.
