Infant Formula Ingredients and Nutrition

Nourish your little one with confidence

There's a lot that goes into choosing an infant formula, and you want to know what exactly you're feeding your baby. We're committed to transparency in all ingredients in Kabrita® Goat Milk-Based Infant Formula.

Babies need protein to grow and stay healthy. It helps build and repair their body tissues, muscles, and organs.

Kabrita's formula made from goat milk has whey and casein proteins just like breast milk does. It's specially made with 60% whey and 40% casein, similar to the healthy ratio found in breast milk.

Plus our formula is gentle on little stomachs. As goat milk-based proteins break down, they form tiny, soft curds, unlike the harder ones from cow milk proteins, making it easier to digest.¹⁻²

Babies need fat for healthy brain and nervous system development and to support absorption of fat soluble vitamins.

Our formula is made with a unique blend of fats chosen for their high quality and based on the latest research in infant growth and development. It includes beta-palmitate (sometimes referred to as high2-palmitic acid), a type of fat that's found in breast milk.³

We also add DHA and ARA, two crucial omega fatty acids that babies normally get from breast milk, to our formula.

Babies grow fast and need lots of energy, which they get from carbohydrates.

Our formula gets most of its carbohydrates from lactose, the same natural carbohydrate source babies get from breast milk. We also add a little extra lactose to help with gentle digestion. Goat milk is also rich in a special kind of nutrient called oligosaccharides that act as a prebiotic and further helps babies digest comfortably.⁴

Lactose is the best carbohydrate for healthy babies because it's like breast milk, and that's why our formula does not add ingredients like corn syrup.

Beta-palmitate is a healthy fatty acid found in breast milk that is structurally different than those in vegetable oil. It helps babies absorb more calcium and fat and improves stool consistency. These benefits contribute to stronger bones, healthier guts, less crying, and better sleep for babies.

Kabrita is the only baby formula in the US with this special ingredient.⁵⁻⁷

Our formula is designed to be easy on baby's tummies. Our blend of whey and casein proteins is similar to what's in breast milk. The balance is 60% whey to 40% casein, which is easier for digestion.⁸⁻⁹

DHA and ARA are important omega 3 and 6 fatty acids that are found in breast milk. Our formula includes these fatty acids to support your baby's growth, especially brain and vision development.¹⁰⁻¹³

Iron helps make blood cells that carry oxygen around the body, and it's key for turning food into energy. Since not all babies get enough iron, the American Academy of Pediatrics suggests feeding with an iron-fortified formula, if they're not being exclusively breastfed, from birth up to their first birthday.¹⁴

Trust Kabrita Goat-Milk Based Infant Formula to provide the important ingredients babies need in a way that is closer to breast milk than cow milk-based infant formula is.

Our infant formula delivers gentle nutrition for growing babies and quality ingredients for parents who want to feel confident about their choice of infant formula.
