We know moms want the best for their baby and are dedicated label readers. European baby formulas are known for their superior ingredients and quality standards. So, what is the best European baby formula? Read on to learn about important criteria to consider.
What is the Best European Baby Formula Available in the United States?
You decided to use baby formula – and you want the best. European food standards are different from those in the US, where all genetically modified foods and ingredients must be declared. Great European baby formula starts with high-quality GMO-free ingredients.
Know The Gold Standard
While superior ingredients are a critical factor in the best formula, there’s more to consider. Breast milk is the gold standard in infant nutrition, which is very important to know and keep in mind. Parents should choose a baby formula modeled after important breast milk attributes. While breast milk is dynamic, complex and impossible to replicate, here are some essential features to consider:
- Lactose is the main carbohydrate
- The proteins are gentle on tiny tummies
- It contains more whey than casein proteins
- Certain fats are found in specific structures
Now That You Know the Gold Standard, Here’s What to Look for in Best Baby Formula:
- Lactose as the main carbohydrate
- Easy to digest proteins
- An adapted whey to casein ratio
- Fats modeled after essential breast milk fats
