For over 58 years Kendamil has produced world class infant nutrition to support healthy growth and development of babies. As a leader in organic farming and manufacturer, Kendamil has earned a reputation for being the gold standard in infant nutrition.
Kendamil uses only whole milk from family owned and operated farms that have been mindfully, ecologically, and sustainably sourced. Like all European baby formulas, Kendamil will never contain GMOs, soy, non-lactose sugars, chemicals, hormones, steroids, or heavy metals.
All baby formulas need carbohydrates in the form of sugar in order to mimic the nutritive value of breast milk. Mature breast milk has one-third of the calories from sugar in the form of lactose.
As such, the main carbohydrates in Kendamil baby formulas is 30% lactose with no other sugars added. Kendamil whole milk lactose is perfect for the sustained energy needed for healthy growth and development.
All infants need protein to build cells and tissues. To closely mimic the protein composition of breast milk Kendamil uses both whey and casein.
Putting deliberate thought into the ever changing needs of little ones, just as breastmilk changes with baby, so do the stages of Kendamil baby formulas. Although the overall protein stays the same, the whey, which is more filling, changes to ready baby for solid food weaning.
Stage 1: Whey to casein ratio 60:40
Stage 2: Whey to casein ratio 40:60
Vegetarian Fats and Oils
Kendamil takes great pride in offering nutrition that is accessible to most infants while being ecological and sustainable.
Kendamil has no fish oil which makes it not only vegetarian friendly, but makes it an easy choice for parents who prefer to do without palm oil in the list of ingredients.
The benefits of whole milk make it possible to leave out almost all vegetable oils and have the extra feature of Milk Fat Globule Membrane as found in breast milk. MFGM has been shown to have a positive impact on the cognitive and reasoning development in infants.
Prebiotics and Probiotics
Following strict British Soil Association regulation, Kendamil does not contain any probiotic, but uses naturally sourced prebiotics. This ensures organic nutrition remains while supporting the healthy occurring gut microbiomes that aid in digestion and absorption.
Kendamil’s commitment to sustainability and accessibility shows in every part of the baby formula. Wanting to find another option other than fish oil for its baby formulas, Kendamil looked to wet biomasses for rich DHA algae oil.
Kendamil has the unique distinction of being the first ever organic formula in the world to have the verified presence of naturally occurring Human Milk Oligosaccharides (HMOs).
This complex carbohydrate that exists in human breast milk has major benefits, including natural immunity abilities and cognitive and developmental properties that are not seen in any other baby formula ingredient.
