Gentle by nature

What makes our goat milk formula so gentle?

Let's talk science

Kabrita® Goat Milk-Based Infant Formula combines the natural goodness of goat milk with important ingredients found in breast milk. The result is proven nutrition in a naturally gentle formula that babies can easily digest.

Proteins are key for a baby's growth and are the building blocks of their muscles, tissues, and organs.

Our formula includes whey and casein, the same proteins found in breast milk and similar to the 60:40 mix for a baby's needs.

It's also easy on babies' bellies. It forms smaller, softer curds when digested, compared to cow milk-based formula, making it easier for babies to digest.¹⁻²

Goat milk oligosaccharides, a special type of complex carbohydrate and prebiotic fiber, may help with tummy issues³⁻⁵

With goat milk having higher levels of these naturally-occurring oligosaccharides than cow milk, they also more closely resemble breast milk.⁶ Goat milk has five times more oligosaccharides than cow milk!⁷ Some of these oligosaccharides are exactly the same as in breast milk, helping to make our formula gentle for babies.

Whey is the portion of milk protein that remains liquid in the gut. Casein is the portion of milk protein that forms the curd during digestion.

That's why we add goat whey concentrate to Kabrita Goat Milk-Based Infant Formula. Doing this helps to adapt the whey to casein ratio of our product to 60:40, the ratio similarly found in breast milk, to support easier digestion.⁸⁻⁹

Beta-palmitate is a more absorbable form of palmitic acid, a major fatty acid found in breast milk. While it doesn't naturally occur in goat milk, we realized that adding it to Kabrita Goat Milk-Based Infant Formula could greatly benefit babies.

Beta-palmitate may lead to improved calcium absorption, fat absorption, and stool consistency - and these results are associated with improved bone health and gut health as well as reduced crying and improved sleep.¹⁰⁻¹²

Our formula includes high levels (>40%) of beta-palmitate, and we're proud to say that we're the only infant formula in the US that includes this premium ingredient.

Supported by the infant formula experts

The use of goat milk-based infant formula is supported by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) as an acceptable source of nutrition for all infants in their first year of life.¹³
