The first and only formula that contains DHA & ARA that is compliant with USDA organic laws. Baby's Only Organic Dairy with DHA & ARA is naturally derived from egg lecithin. This differs from life'sDHA that is used in all other organic and conventional infant formulas, which is derived from algae & fungus and treated with hexane solvent, acid and bleach. Parents who want to avoid giving their baby a formula with chemically treated oils, but would like added non-essential fatty acids should consider Baby's Only Organic Dairy formula with DHA & ARA.
Phospholipids versus Triglycerides
The DHA used by Nature's One is a phospholipid from egg yolk, while the other infant formula brands use DHA derived from algae and fungus, which is a triglyceride. The use of egg phospholipids in human nutrition, especially infant nutrition, has been widely studied. It is well understood that phospholipids form smaller droplets in the intestinal tract, are more easily absorbed and offer greater bioavailability than DHA from the form of triglycerides.
Phospholipids Balance Fatty Acids in Formula
Research suggests that the addition of phospholipids to infant formulas is desirable due to their important role in human milk. Breast milk is made up of both phospholipids and triglycerides. However, infant and toddler formulas contain high levels of triglycerides formulated with vegetable oil blends, but are void of phospholipids. Knowing formula already provides an abundant amount of triglycerides, Nature's One believes adding a phospholipid to formula achieves a more natural fatty acid profile compared to leading infant formulas containing DHA supplemented with triglycerides from life's DHA.
The Best Organic Start
Breast milk is the best organic choice. Baby's Only Organic is labeled a toddler formula to promote breast milk as the best first option. Following breast milk, parents can continue providing organic nutrition using Baby's Only Organic formula. For a baby less than 12-months, use as directed by a healthcare professional.
