The company said for babies with a sensitive digestion, the new goat milks can represent a welcome alternative.
The WHO recommends six months of exclusive breastfeeding, however Hochdorf noted there are situations where a baby needs supplementary food or breastfeeding is not possible. For children with a sensitive digestion, Bimbosan said its goat milks can be a good alternative.
Goat milk has good digestibility, because goat milk contains smaller “protein globules” that can be broken down better by digestive enzymes than cow's milk proteins.
Hochdorf uses only goat milk as a protein source in the new goat milk-based infant formula. The Bimbosan milks also contain the Omega-3 fatty acid DHA (from fish oil), which is legally required in baby food, as well as the Omega-6 fatty acid, ARA. Both are important for the normal development of a baby in the first two years. Added to this are the latest generation of the prebiotic HMO or human milk oligosaccharides, which have been shown to promote the child's immune system and healthy intestinal flora.
Bimbosan goat milks do not contain palm oil or starch. In line with statutory requirements, they are also gluten-free.
The full range of Bimbosan products can be found in all Swiss pharmacies and chemist shops. Some products, including the goat milk range, are available in larger Coop sales outlets and in various online shops.
The new goat milk-based infant formulas from Bimbosan are suitable for children from birth. They are available in a 400g tin with a measuring spoon, a sustainable 400g refill bag and in travel portions of 5x25g.
