Organic Goat Milk Formula
Organic Baby Formula
Goat’s milk is a rich source of nutrients and it has a unique composition that differs from that of cow’s milk. They are easier for toddlers to digest and contains less allergenic proteins than cow’s milk – Mild in taste and rich in nutrients. Our goat milk formulas exclusively come from organic grass fed goats in Europe. The goats are kept appropriately according to bio-dynamic principles and are fed with uncontaminated diet on lush fields and meadows. This ensures a high quality of the milk used for our products.
The benefits of using Organic Goat Milk
European infant formula is specially processed to make it easier for little tummies to digest. That being said, goat milk infant formula will be easier for many infants to digest over cow milk infant formula. Babies that have an allergy to cow milk are often able to consume goat milk as a hypoallergenic alternative. Keep in mind that infants that are allergic to lactose or who have a genetic condition that prevents from consuming lactose will not be able to tolerate either form.
- Less allergenic
- Less lactose
- Less toxic
The differences between Goat Milk Formula and Cow Milk Formula
The main difference that makes one easier to digest than the other is the fat content in the milk itself. Infant formula made from goat milk has higher concentrations of linoleic and arachidonic, which are essential fatty acids. Goat milk formula offers 30-35% MCT while cow milk only offers 15-20% MCT. The shorter the acid chains, the easier it is for infants to digest. In addition, the curds created by goat milk infant formula are smaller and much looser than those made by cow milk infant formula. The end result is that goat milk is easier to digest.
Why Goat Milk Formula?

That’s why, apart from the Cow Milk Formulas made from precious Demeter cow’s milk, we are also offering infant formula based on goat’s milk. The Goat Milk Formulas perfectly match the nutritional needs of your baby. They provide your baby with all the essential vitamins, minerals and nutrients it needs.
Goat milk formula for babies with lactose intolerance
Goat milk based organic baby formulas are getting more popular and we often hear the question if goat milk formula is better than cow milk. Goat milk naturally contains less lactose than breast milk and lactose is often blamed for tummy troubles in little ones, but it’s the primary carbohydrate source in breast milk. Goat milk provides critical nutrients that are similar to breastfeeding and which are needed to meet the child’s needs for a healthy development. Also, there is a small percentage of babies (approximately 2-3%) and children with a cow milk allergy which should drink goat based milk products instead.
