What is Löwenzahn Organics follow-on infant formula made from?
Transparency is part of our corporate philosophy. That's why we're happy to explain the basic ingredients of our Löwenzahn Organics follow-on milk formula to you. In our range we have follow-on milk formula based on cow's milk and goat's milk - one type based on skimmed milk powder and two made from whole milk powder.
All of our Löwenzahn Organics follow-up baby milk powders have all the important nutrients:
Age-appropriate milk proteins
Skimmed milk powder and whole milk powder contain important milk proteins for your baby. The protein content of our follow-on milk formula is up to 1.5 grams per 100 millilitres. In our Löwenzahn Organics follow-on baby milk, the ratio of casein and whey protein adapts to the age-related needs of babies. In our follow-on milk the ratio of whey protein to casein is 50:50 and in our children's milk it is 30:70. The outlier is our follow-up baby milk based on goat's milk. It contains the whey protein:casein ratio of 20:80, which is naturally present in goat's milk.
Lactose for quickly available energy
Lactose is the main source of carbohydrates in our Dandelion Organics Pre Nutrition. Their simple structure allows babies to quickly convert lactose into energy.
Vitamins and minerals for important metabolic functions
Vitamins and minerals are also contained in our Löwenzahn Organics follow-on milk formula. For example, vitamin D supports the function of the immune system and calcium supports the growth and bone development of children (vitamin D is legally required for follow-on food).
The human body cannot produce minerals itself and cannot produce some vitamins in sufficient quantities. That's why it's so important to add vitamins and minerals in follow-on baby milk.
Omega 3 fatty acid (DHA) and Omega 6 fatty acid (ARA) in baby milk promote brain development and vision
DHA and ARA are contained in our follow-up baby milk in a 1:1 ratio. The ratio is so important so that DHA and ARA can achieve their optimal effect. They play a central role in the structure of the brain and are also important for motor skills and the retina.
DHA from algae oil instead of fish oil
Good to know: We use algae oil as a source of DHA in our Löwenzahn Organics milk formula. The use of fish oil as a source of omega-3 fatty acids such as DHA is widespread in the food industry. By extracting DHA from farmed seaweed, we avoid the allergen that is otherwise found in baby milk powder, while also helping to preserve marine ecosystems by not contributing to overfishing. In addition, the fishy smell and taste that would otherwise be present in baby milk is also avoided. One reason why our Löwenzahn Organics baby milk tastes so good.
All of our Löwenzahn Organics follow-up and toddler's follow-up baby milk powder have all the important nutrients your baby needs for optimal development in the first 1,000 days. Our cow's milk-based baby milk made from skimmed milk powder and whole milk powder as well as our goat's milk-based baby milk made from whole milk powder each have a number of advantages.
Whole milk powder contains all the important fats for energy
Fat is and remains an important supplier of energy. Whole milk powder in subsequent baby milk has an advantage in terms of fat content compared to skimmed milk powder in subsequent baby milk. While skimmed milk reduces the milk's own fats, whole milk powder still contains all fats. This means that follow-on baby milk based on whole milk powder is less processed. However, whole milk powder is more expensive than skimmed milk powder.
Addition of vegetable oils in baby milk made from skimmed milk powder for more energy
Fat is an important source of energy. Since most of the fat is removed in subsequent skimmed milk powder, we have added valuable vegetable oils to our subsequent cow's milk-based baby milk. Selected sunflowers, rapeseed and oil palm were chosen as sources of vegetable oils. We only use organic palm oil from certified sustainable extraction.
Without palm oil - baby milk made from whole milk powder
Because of the fat content of whole milk, fewer additional vegetable oils are needed in baby milk based on cow's milk and goat's milk made from whole milk powder. Only sunflower and rapeseed oils are added. There is no need to supplement with highly processed vegetable oils such as palm oil.
Easily digestible - follow-up baby milk based on goat's milk made from whole milk powder
Proteins and fat in baby milk based on whole goat's milk powder are structured differently compared to those in cow's milk. For example, goat milk contains smaller “fat globules” that are easier to digest by babies with sensitive stomachs.
Even more nutrients - follow-on milk formula based on cow's milk made from whole milk
The recipes for our follow-up and children's follow-up baby milk are based on current scientific results. Our follow-on baby milk based on cow's milk made from whole milk also contains the prebiotic fiber Bio-FOS, the amino acid taurine and nucleotides (building blocks of DNA)
