Goat Milk Formula

Kendamil goat milk baby formula is easily set apart from all other goat milk formulas in the US and Europe. This baby formula has the distinction of being the very first goat formula manufactured in the UK and includes several unique ingredients that no other goat formula on the market currently offers.

Full Cream Milk

Kendamil’s unique whole milk recipe provides a more natural fat source for your baby, and uniquely provides your little one a natural source of Milk Fat Globule Membrane (or MFGM), as identified in breastmilk. No other goat milk baby formula on the market contains a higher level of full-cream nutrients.


Kendamil baby formula is the only European baby formula that does not contain DHA and ARA that has been sourced from fish oil.

Instead, Kendamil uses plant-based, pure marine algae, as its source of DHA and Omega 3. This non-allergen alternative to DHA and ARA is carefully extracted without hexanes or chemicals.

Grass Fed Goat Milk

All milk in Kendamil goat milk formula is sourced from red tractor certified and sustainable farms. Goats are grass-fed and treated with gentle animal husbandry practices.

Kendamil adheres to strict UK guidelines and regulations and will never use hormones, steroids, antibiotics, or GMOs on their farms or animals.

Grass-fed milk naturally is higher in healthy antioxidants, vitamin E, naturally occurring omega-3 fatty acids and other nutrients.

First in the World

 Kendamil goat milk formula is part of the new gold standard line of infant formulas that will be the first ever formulas globally to contain Human Milk Oligosaccharides (HMOs), as found in human breastmilk.

HMOs have shown to be linked with promoting good bacteria in the gut, reducing the risks of infection and allergy and supporting brain development and improved cognitive functions.

The advanced goat milk baby formula will contain:

  • Nucleotides: For improved immune function
  • Taurine: An amino acid that helps infants absorb fat
  • ARA: Linked with improved visual acuity and cognitive development
  • Selenium: which has been shown to contain prebiotics found in breastmilk

A2 Milk

Kendamil Goat milk baby formula uniquely includes A2 milk, which is more easily digested and absorbed by infants, compared to a recipe exclusively made with A1 milk.

Free from Harmful Ingredients, Preservatives, and Additives

Like all European formula, Kendamil goat formula contains no wheat, no soy, no peanut ingredients, no added sugar, and no palm oil. Kendamil goat milk formula is gluten free, and GMO-Free.


Genetically Modified Ingredients (GMOs) are harmful produce and animal products. These ingredients are injected with chemicals to grow bigger and faster. Kendamil will never use GMOs, hormones, or steroids on their farms or in their infant formulas.


Kendamil goat milk formula will never contain soy or soy lecithin. Soy is known to damage the development of brain and nerve cells in infants. With daily doses it can disrupt and alter the endocrine system and because soy causes a zinc deficiency in children, it prevents optimal brain health.

Palm Oil

A heavily controversial ingredient, Kendamil goat formula contains 0% palm oil, to protect your baby and the environment.


Kendamil goat formula contains zero gluten, further making it an excellent choice for allergy-prone babies or babies with food sensitivities.


Kendamil knows that tree nuts are a common food allergy that many families are prone to. With that in mind, no tree nuts of any kind are used for the fat source. Rather, healthy vegetable oils are used to provide supported digestion.

Added Sugars

Over-the-counter American baby formulas, unfortunately more often than not, use sugar solids or sugar syrups, as the main carbohydrate in their infant formulas. Big box companies use this ingredient because it is cheap and under regulated.

This money saving ingredient puts your babies’ body, immune system, and wellbeing in harm's way and compromises long term health.

Kendamil with strict EU regulations, contains only the natural sugars that are found in goat’s milk to provide energy and a delicious creamy taste. No added sugars are needed.


Along with added sugars, US big brand formulas have the tendency to mislead by labeling sugar under hidden names. Maltodextrin is one of the names that is actually sugar in disguise.

Kendamil only uses pure, wholesome ingredients.


Starch is another controversial ingredient that has been used as a filler ingredient to replace healthy carbohydrates and fats. With a high glycemic index and no nutritional value—it has been linked to long term health issues.

Kendamil’s goat milk formula focuses on nutrition that is starch-free to provide a healthy today so that your little one will have a healthy tomorrow.


Many ingredients in over-the-counter formulas are grown, sourced, or manufactured in chemicals. Kendamil contains zero traces of chemicals from farm to formula so you can be sure that your baby gets the wholesome nutrients they deserve.

Frequently Ask Questions

Why choose goat's milk?

Mimics breastmilk: All European goat milk infant formulas have oligosaccharides similar to breastmilk, but Kendamil’s goat milk formula has the first ever formula globally to have the verified presence of Human Milk Oligosaccharides (HMOs), the complex carbohydrate that exists in human breastmilk. HMOs act as a prebiotic making digestion easier because of healthy gut bacteria.

Easier to Digest: Goat’s milk formula proteins generally form a smaller, softer, and looser curd in the gut than cow milk formula which makes goat’s milk formula naturally easier to digest.

Immune System Support: Goat milk contains selenium, similar to what is found in human breast milk, which supports the development of the immune system. Goat milk has also been shown to contain prebiotics also found in breast milk and goat’s milk naturally contains higher levels of certain vitamins; this includes vitamin A, vitamin C, magnesium, and calcium, which boost immunity and aid in absorption of prebiotics.

Environmentally Friendly: Goat milk is more sustainable and has a lower environmental impact than cow’s milk. Goats require one third the amount of land and food than cows do and they produce less manure than cows.

A2 Milk: Kendamil goat also uniquely includes A2 milk which is easily digested and absorbed by infants as compared to a recipe exclusively made with A1 milk.

Why Full Cream Goat Milk Instead of Skimmed Milk?

Kendamil’s unique whole milk recipe provides a more natural fat source for your baby and reduces the amount of vegetable oils used. Whole milk also uniquely provides your little one a natural source of Milk Fat Globule Membrane (or MFGM), as identified in breastmilk and shown to improve infants’ cognitive development.

What Are HMO’S?

Kendamil is the first ever in the world to offer goat milk formula with the presence of Human Milk Oligosaccharides. HMO’s are a complex carbohydrate that exists in human breast milk.

This global first is important because research has shown HMO’s to be linked with protection of the lining of infants intestine which promotes good bacteria in the gut, thereby reducing the risks of infection and allergy.

HMO’s have an important role to play in supporting brain development and improved cognitive functions, as well as strengthening an infant's immune system.

What is the benefit of A2 milk?

For babies who are lactose intolerant or have a milk sensitivity, milk protein is often the culprit. However, many studies recently conducted have been able to specifically link the A1 beta-casein protein as being the cause of discomfort.

Observational studies have also shown when a lactose intolerant infant drinks A2 milk, there was no reported discomfort.

The good news: Kendamil goat milk baby formula only contains A2 proteins, making this the perfect choice for a newborn’s immature digestive system and for most infants with a milk sensitivity or lactose intolerance.

What is the Best Way to Switch to Kendamil Goat Milk Formula?

When it is time to introduce Kendamil goat milk baby formula, transitioning over five days can help ensure your little one's palate and digestive system has time to adjust.

If severe sensitivity or milk protein allergy make it necessary for your little one to switch to 100% Kendamil goat milk formula in a more timely fashion there is no need to worry.

Babies that switch from cow’s milk-based formula or breastmilk to goat's milk-based formula usually only take a little bit of adjustment period. The gentle composition and ease of smaller, softer, and looser curd of goat milk makes it easier for your little one’s digestive system to make the transition with little or no tummy issues.
