My Organic Company European Baby Formula Recommendations

We base our research on expert opinions from healthcare professionals, hands-on experience with the products, and peer-reviewed research articles. Additionally, we rely on information from credible health organizations such as the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) to ensure the accuracy and reliability of our findings.

My Organic Company Baby Formula Point System

At MOC, we strive to provide comprehensive and reliable product reviews. We assess every baby formula using specific performance criteria meticulously derived from evidence-based infant nutrition literature. Each performance category is assigned 1 point, with a maximum potential score of 10 points.

MOC Primary Criteria Points Awarded for Baby Formula

 We take great care in choosing specific criteria that are best for your child's health. These criteria are meticulously selected to align with the principles of a healthy diet for young children, providing you with a comprehensive understanding of our thorough assessment process and the health benefits of the reviewed products.

Prime Focus

Extensive research has shown that what is left out of infant formula is as crucial as the nutrients and digestibility of the components within. With your child in mind, we have determined the following criteria.

Primary Points Awarded | My Organic Company

1. European Organic: Infants and toddlers progress through pivotal developmental stages and are undeniably vulnerable to the detrimental effects of contaminants. Embracing an organic diet represents a powerful strategy to minimize their exposure to pesticide contamination.

Organic production standards unequivocally champion ecological balance, biodiversity conservation, and the efficient cycling of resources. Prohibited practices include synthetic fertilizers, sewage sludge, irradiation, and genetic engineering.

2. Non-GMO: The effects of GMOs are not fully understood, but we know that young children are especially vulnerable to environmental toxins. Even small amounts of prolonged exposure can significantly impact children's physical and mental development. 

Parents should be concerned about genetically modified ingredients, which are being scrutinized for their potential to increase pesticide use.

3. Lactose or Milk As The First Ingredient: When it comes to nurturing your baby, nothing can match the natural goodness of breast milk. Lactose, also known as milk sugar, is a crucial source of carbohydrate nutrition found in human breast milk, providing babies with 40% of their energy needs.

When selecting a baby formula, it's vital to prioritize formulas with lactose as the primary ingredient, especially in cow's and goat's milk formulas. This ensures that your baby receives nutrition that closely resembles the gold standard in infant nutrition. 

4. No Added Sugars: The presence of non-lactose sugars in baby formulas has been associated with increased risks of obesity, changes in the microbiome, and the formation of biofilms on teeth. This highlights the necessity of selecting a formula without added sugars for your baby's well-being.

5. ARA and DHA: Understanding the importance of ARA and DHA, two primary long-chain omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids, is crucial for your child's cognitive growth and visual and immune development. By choosing a baby formula that includes these essential nutrients, you make a confident and informed choice for your little one's health.

MOC Bonus Points Criteria Awarded for Baby Formula

We have identified specific areas important to parents when choosing products for their infants. These areas will be awarded to brands that, through their exceptional care and attention to detail in their formulations, as evidenced by specific quality, help us offer parents a carefully selected range of products that meet your high standards.

Bonus Points Awarded | My Organic Company

1. Probiotics: The beneficial gut bacteria, have been proven to significantly enhance a baby’s health. They boost immunity, improve metabolism, support brain function, and reduce inflammation. One of the most effective ways to ensure your baby benefits from a diverse gut microbiota is by using a formula enriched with probiotics. Bifidobacteria in a baby's gut increases when they consume formula supplemented with probiotics, compared to those on a standard formula without supplements.

2. Prebiotics: These dietary fibers are essential for nourishing gut flora and stimulating their growth and proliferation. Scientific studies have revealed that infants fed formula enriched with prebiotics exhibit gut metabolic activity similar to breastfed infants. This similarity underscores the potential of prebiotic-enriched formula to replicate the nutritional benefits of breast milk, providing caregivers with a reassuring option to consider.

3. No Starch: A complex carbohydrate requires a certain level of digestive system maturity to be effectively broken down in a baby's tummy. While it may be a well-tolerated and satiating energy source for older babies, it is not the gentlest option for newborns or those with sensitive stomachs.

4. No Maltodextrin: Maltodextrin is a carbohydrate derived from starch often used in infant formula as a thickener, stabilizer, or substitute for lactose. The scientific community, along with the FDA and ESFA, considers maltodextrin to be safe for babies. However, it is worth noting that maltodextrin is more highly processed than lactose and may not be the best choice for natural ingredients.

5. Vegetarian-Friendly: The DHA in vegetarian baby formulas comes from plant-based sources such as algae oil and marine algae. One benefit of using these sources is that they are free from common allergens found in fish oil. This makes vegetarian baby formulas an excellent choice for babies sensitive to allergens.

Please be aware that this information is based on general trends in babies, and it is not medical advice. Your doctor should be your first source of information and advice when considering any changes to your child’s formula and when choosing your child’s formula. Always consult your pediatrician before making any decisions about your child’s diet or if you notice any changes in your child.

Breastfeeding is the best nutrition for your baby because breast milk provides your child with all the essential nutrients they need for growth and development. Please consult your pediatrician if your child requires supplemental feeding.
