This is important for the development of bones and teeth and helps maintain the gums. It is essential for night vision, healthy skin, hair and mucous membranes. It is sometimes referred to as the anti-infective vitamin because it is required for the proper functioning of the immune system and helps prevent infection.
Baby’s Only Organic® Formulas: 300 IU (per 100 calories)
Good animal sources of Vitamin A include: milk and dairy products, organ meats such as liver.
Good plant sources of the pro Vitamin A carotenoids include: deep yellow and orange fruits and vegetables such as carrots, sweet potatoes, cantaloupe, and dark green leafy vegetables.
This is also known as cholecalciferol or Vitamin D3, is often called the sunshine vitamin because of the body’s ability to make it from the interaction of the sun on the skin. Vitamin D is essential for the development and maintenance of healthy bones and teeth. Vitamin D also helps the body properly utilize calcium and phosphorus for the proper functioning of the nervous system.

Good Food Sources: fortified milk, cheese, eggs, some fish such as sardines and salmon, and fish oils.
Vitamin E is a generic term used to describe a family of eight antioxidants – 4 tocopherols and 4 tocotrienols. However, only alpha-tocopherol is the form actively used in the body and is, therefore, the form of Vitamin E found in the largest quantity in blood and tissues. Natural Vitamin E Acetate, also known as natural alpha-tocopheryl acetate, is the commonly used form of Vitamin E in foods and vitamin supplements. Vitamin E protects Vitamin A and the essential fatty acids from oxidation in the body. It is needed for the proper functioning of nerves and muscles and helps to form red blood cells, muscle and other tissues.
A deficiency of Vitamin E has been observed in individuals with severe malnutrition or who have a malabsorption syndrome such as cystic fibrosis or cholestatic liver disease. A deficiency of Vitamin E can result in neurological symptoms such as impaired balance and coordination, muscle weakness, and damage to the retina of the eye. Excessive Vitamin E can impair blood clotting leading to hemorrhage and can have a negative effect on white blood cell functioning.
Baby’s Only Organic® Formulas: 2 IU (per 100 calories)
Good Food Sources: poultry, seafood, green leafy vegetables, egg yolk, nuts, seeds, wheat germ, whole grains.
There are three types:
• Vitamin K1 or phylloquinone which is found in plants
• Vitamin K2 or menaquinone which is synthesized by many bacteria
• Vitamin K3 or menadione which is a synthetic form
Vitamin K helps the blood to clot when the body is injured and is important in bone development and repair. In newborn babies, there is a life threatening and preventable bleeding disorder known as Vitamin K Deficiency Bleeding (VKDB). This is the reason why it is standard practice to give all newborns an injection of phylloquinone after birth. Baby’s Only Organic® formulas contain the plant-based phylloquinone (Vitamin K1).
Baby’s Only Organic® Formulas: 8.5 mcg (per 100 calories)
Good Food Sources: green leafy vegetables, pork, liver, oats, wheat bran, whole grains.
Biotin is part of the B-complex of vitamins. It is thought to play a role in cell growth and is important in the metabolism of fats, carbohydrates (sugars), and some amino acids (the building blocks of protein).
Baby’s Only Organic® Formulas: 3 mcg (per 100 calories)
Good Food Sources: eggs, meats, fish, nuts, seeds, dried beans and peas (legumes).
Folic acid, sometimes called folate or folacin or Vitamin B9, works with vitamins B6 and B12 in protein metabolism. It is needed to make genetic material (DNA and RNA). It promotes normal red blood cell formation and reduces the risk of neural tube (brain and spine) birth defects. This is one reason why a folic acid supplement is recommended during pregnancy.
Baby’s Only Organic® Formulas: 15 mcg (per 100 calories)
Good Food Sources: poultry, liver, dark green leafy vegetables, dried beans and peas (legumes), yeast breads, wheat germ, cereals, oranges, grapefruits.
Niacin, also known as nicotinic acid or Vitamin B3, is found in every cell of the body. It is necessary for energy production and to maintain the normal functioning of skin, nerves and the digestive tract. It can be manufactured by the body from the amino acid tryptophan. However, the amount needed by the body will usually exceed the amount that the body can produce and it is necessary to consume niacin from foods.
Baby’s Only Organic® Formulas: 1100 mcg (per 100 calories)
Good Food Sources: poultry, fish (especially tuna and salmon), beef, peanuts and peanut butter, seeds, potatoes.
Pantothenic acid is also known as Vitamin B5. It is involved in numerous chemical reactions in the body and is essential for the metabolism of fat and sugars. Pantothenic acid is also involved in the manufacture of chemicals that regulate nerve functions.

Baby’s Only Organic® Formulas: 100 mcg (per 100 calories)
Good Food Sources: whole grain and enriched grain products, pork, seafood, cereals.
Vitamin B6: This can also be referred to as pyridoxine or pyridoxal. This vitamin influences many body functions including the regulation of blood sugar levels, the manufacturing of hemoglobin in red blood cells which carries oxygen to all body cells, and the functioning of the nervous system. As protein intake increases, so does the body’s need for Vitamin B6. Also, an adequate Vitamin B6 intake decreases the requirement for niacin from food sources because it aids in the conversion of tryptophan to niacin.
Baby’s Only Organic® Formulas: 60 mcg (per 100 calories)
Good Food Sources: chicken, fish, pork, liver, whole grains, cereals, spinach, sweet and white potatoes, bananas, prunes, watermelon.

As blood passes through the tiny air sacs in the lung, oxygen attaches itself to the iron in the blood. That’s how oxygen is carried to all parts of the body. Iron combines with protein and copper to make hemoglobin, a necessary component of red blood cells that carries oxygen to the cells. Iron also is a component of myoglobin, a protein that stores oxygen specifically in muscle tissue. Approximately 90% of iron in the body is conserved and reused every day.

Human milk is relatively low in manganese (4 to 6 micrograms per liter). formulas, both dairy-based and soy-based, contain higher amounts of manganese reflecting the levels of manganese found naturally in cow’s milk or soybeans. No manganese is added to Baby’s Only Organic® formulas. As reported on our labels, Baby’s Only Organic® Dairy formula contains 5 micrograms per 100 Calories and Baby’s Only Organic® Soy formula contains 55 micrograms per 100 Calories. For babies and toddlers, the manganese levels of Baby’s Only Organic® Dairy and Soy formulas are well within the recommendations for a safe and adequate intake by the Food and Nutrition Board of the U.S. National Academy of Sciences, which can range as high as 600 micrograms for a baby 0-6 months old. The American Academy of Pediatrics specifies a 5 microgram minimum per 100 calories. The American Academy of Pediatrics does not dictate maximum levels of manganese for formula.
Some of the minerals in Baby’s Only Organic® do appear to be slightly elevated when compared to other formulas. The reason for this is that we list the actual naturally occurring amount of these minerals. For example, Nature’s One® does not add any additional manganese to our soy formula. Additionally, soybeans tend to have a higher amount of these minerals naturally occurring such as you noted for manganese. Other formula companies do not list the naturally occurring amounts found in the soy. Instead, these companies appear to add additional amounts of these minerals and only report the amount they add. They do this for protection from falling below the FDA minimums as required by law. This is practiced because the naturally occurring amounts of these minerals in soy can fluctuate depending on the soil conditions where the soybean was grown. Failing to meet the minimum requirement of these minerals would trigger a recall of the formula.

This is an electrolyte and works with sodium to regulate the body’s waste balance, transmit nerve impulses, and regulate muscle contraction including the heart muscles. It is essential for metabolism and the release of insulin. In babies and young children who have diarrhea or vomiting, an oral electrolyte solution such as PediaVance® containing a balance among sodium, potassium and chloride is usually recommended to help prevent the body from becoming dehydrated due to a deficiency in these electrolytes.
Baby’s Only Organic® LactoRelief & Dairy Formulas: 120 mg (per 100 calories)
Baby’s Only Organic® Soy Formula: 140 mg (per 100 calories)
Good Food Sources: bananas, citrus fruits, dried fruits, deep yellow vegetables, potatoes, milk, bran cereal.
The primary role of sodium in the body is to maintain fluid balance. Sodium is an electrolyte and works with potassium and chloride to conduct electrical currents in the body and keep tissue fluids in balance. A deficiency of sodium is rare but loss of sodium through diarrhea, vomiting, or excessive sweating can cause dehydration, muscle cramps, weakness, and headaches. This is especially critical in babies and young children and the reason for use of an oral electrolyte solution such as PediaVance®with a balance of sodium, potassium and chloride when a child has diarrhea and vomiting.
Baby’s Only Organic® Formulas: 30 mg (per 100 calories)
Good Food Sources: salt, milk, processed foods such as luncheon meats.
This is an electrolyte and helps to maintain fluid balance in the body and also is a component of the stomach juices (hydrochloric acid) needed for digestion of foods. A deficiency of chloride is rare but loss of chloride through diarrhea, vomiting, or excessive sweating can cause an upset in the body’s fluid balance resulting in dehydration. In babies and young children who have diarrhea or vomiting, an oral electrolyte solution such as PediaVance® containing a balance among sodium, potassium and chloride is usually recommended to help prevent the body from becoming dehydrated.
Baby’s Only Organic® LactoRelief & Dairy Formulas: 80 mg (per 100 calories)

Carbohydrates are one of the crucial dietary sources of energy that support the brain, enable muscular contractions, and provide the fuel necessary for a baby’s and toddler’s rapid growth, especially through 24-months of age. Each gram of carbohydrate provides 4 Calories. So it is important for a child to get adequate amounts of carbohydrates each day from good food sources.
Carbohydrates are sometimes simply called sugars or starches. They are classified scientifically as monosaccharides, disaccharides, or polysaccharides.
Monosaccharide is a one molecule sugar (referred to as a simple sugar or simple carbohydrate). Examples are glucose (sometimes called dextrose), fructose (sometimes called fruit sugar), and galactose. Glucose is the major fuel needed by the body for energy. This is why intravenous fluids (IVs) used in medical situations contain glucose (dextrose).
Disaccharide is made up of two monosaccharides (referred to as a simple sugar or simple carbohydrate). Lactose (sometimes called milk sugar) is made by the joining of one glucose molecule with one galactose molecule. Sucrose (also called table sugar) is made by joining one molecule of fructose with one molecule of glucose. The body breaks down disaccharides into monosaccharides and then converts these to glucose providing needed energy for the body. Baby’s Only Organic® LactoRelief and Soy formulas do not contain lactose; none of our formulas contain sucrose.
Polysaccharide contains more than two sugar molecules. Examples of polysaccharides include organic brown rice syrup, as is found in Baby’s Only Organic® formulas, corn syrup, molasses, and starches. Polysaccharides are often called complex sugars or complex carbohydrates.
Simple sugars are quickly digested and absorbed by the body into the bloodstream. As sugar levels rise in the blood, the pancreas secretes the hormone insulin. Insulin is needed to move the sugar from the blood into the cells where the sugar is then used for energy. When this process goes fast, a feeling of hunger will more likely occur sooner. When it occurs slower, the body appears to be satisfied from hunger longer. Simple sugars usually cause blood sugar levels to rise quicker than complex sugars and increase the production and release of insulin by the pancreas. If the sugar in the bloodstream is not used by the body for energy, then it is stored as fat.
The longer the carbohydrate length, the slower the body breaks it down and, thus, the slower the absorption of the sugar from the intestinal tract into the bloodstream. If there is a slower absorption of the sugar, there is a slower release of insulin. Also, a slower digestion lets the body utilize the sugar for energy and there’s less potential for the sugar to be converted into fat.
Breast Milk is unique in its properties and cannot be duplicated. There are many unique compositional features in breast milk that result in its easy digestion by babies, including factors that help the breakdown of nutrients and their absorption in the gastrointestinal tract. There is no comparing the lactose digestion of a breast fed baby to that of a formula fed baby because manufactured formulas do not contain the many other compositional features of breast milk.
Added Lactose The lactose used in formulas is derived from cow’s milk without the benefit of the unique features of human breast milk. In formulas containing only lactose as the source of carbohydrate, some of the lactose comes into the formula naturally as a part of the cow’s milk and the remainder is added lactose. The added lactose brings the total carbohydrate level to the requirement needed in a formula. In other words, the amount of lactose that comes in naturally with the cow’s milk does not totally meet the needs of a baby and additional lactose must be added. The only lactose contained in Baby’s Only Organic® Dairy Formula is naturally occurring lactose derived from organic cow’s milk.
Organic Brown Rice Syrup The carbohydrate source added to Baby’s Only Organic® formulas is organic brown rice syrup. Rice is known to be a relatively non-allergenic food and well tolerated by babies. As a result, rice cereal is often the first food introduced to older babies. Organic brown rice syrup also offers the benefit of slower digestion and absorption providing a steadier level of sugar being absorbed into the bloodstream, a more even production and release of insulin, and a more even supply of energy to the body’s cells. In addition, Nature’s One® organic brown rice syrup has been filtered to help eliminate environmental toxins that could potentially be found in ground water and soil.
Organic brown rice syrup is slightly sweeter than lactose but significantly less sweet than sucrose (table sugar) or cane sugar. The medical community has expressed concern over using cane sugar in formulas because it is five times sweeter than lactose and could pose health or medical issues related to obesity or dental caries. The carbohydrates in Baby’s Only Organic® Dairy Formula consist of 35% naturally occurring lactose from the organic non-fat cow’s milk and 65% organic brown rice syrup.
Baby’s Only Organic® LactoRelief & Soy Formulas are the only lactose-free formulas in the U.S. that do not contain corn syrup or sucrose (table sugar). Baby’s Only Organic® Dairy Formula contains naturally occurring lactose without the added lactose as found in leading brand formulas. The chart below explains the primary differences between the three formulas manufactured by Nature’s One®

*Do not use for children with galactosemia.
Lactose Intolerance Unlike other formula makers, Nature’s One® prefers to add organic brown rice syrup to its dairy-based formula rather than more lactose. There are many children and adults who either lack or do not produce adequate levels of the enzyme lactase which is necessary to digest lactose. For example, preterm babies are often fed a lactose-free formula because of their inability to manufacture adequate lactase. When there are inadequate levels of lactase in the gastrointestinal tract, this is referred to as lactose intolerance. Symptoms include bloating, flatulence, loose stools, and in some cases diarrhea. If a baby does not produce enough lactase, then lactose will be a problem. Also, following an illness that causes diarrhea, such as the flu, the intestinal tract’s ability to make lactase is compromised. This is often why healthcare professionals will recommend a lactose free formula for children who have had a bout of diarrhea.
There is also a medical condition called galactosemia whereby a person cannot digest galactose, which is part of lactose. As noted previously, lactose is made of galactose and glucose. For people with galactosemia, they MUST avoid any dairy product or other foods that contain lactose and galactose. Baby’s Only Organic® Soy formula is appropriate for babies with galactosemia.

Good Food Sources Complex Carbohydrate: brown rice .
Proteins are essential to life and are necessary for the body’s manufacturing and maintenance of all cells and tissues, including organ and brain development, and the making of essential body constituents such as hormones and enzymes. If excess protein is consumed and not needed by the body, it is converted to fat and stored by the body as a potential future energy source. Each gram of protein provides 4 Calories.
Proteins are made up of amino acids; there are 20 amino acids. Baby’s Only Organic® formulas (Dairy, Dairy-Lactose Free and Soy) provide all of the essential and non-essential amino acids needed to support growth and development.
The protein source in Baby’s Only Organic® Dairy Formula is organic non-fat dried cow’s milk and the source in Baby’s Only Organic® LactoRelief Formula is organic milk protein concentrate. When human breast milk is unavailable, the recommendation is to use a dairy-based formula. A cow’s milk (dairy- based) formula is recommended because the proteins are whey (the liquid protein portion) and casein (the curd protein portion), which are proteins found in human milk. Baby's Only Organic® Dairy Formula and LactoRelief Formula consist of 18% whey and 82% casein.
Taurine is not an amino acid but an amino acid derivative. Taurine functions as an antioxidant and is involved as a part of bile acids in early childhood. Taurine is abundant in human milk, but not in cow’s milk protein or soy protein. Taurine is added to Baby’s Only Organic® Dairy and Soy formulas to the level in breast milk.
When children have an allergic reaction to cow’s milk protein and soy protein, hydrolyzed formulas are often recommended. The cow’s milk protein has been treated to break down the protein, which reduces the allergy potential of the protein. There are presently no organic hydrolyzed formulas on the market.
Baby’s Only Organic® LactoRelief Formula: 2.1 grams protein (per 100 Calories)
Baby’s Only Organic® Dairy Formula: 2.6 grams protein (per 100 Calories)
Baby’s Only Organic® Soy Formula: 2.8 grams protein (per 100 Calories)
Good Food Sources: Animal meats, fish, dairy products, soybeans, legumes, nuts.
The term “lipid” refers to compounds including oils, waxes, animal fats and triglycerides that do not dissolve in water. Lipids are most commonly referred to simply as fats.
Fats constitute the principal structural material of all living cells and are an important source of energy. Healthy skin and hair are maintained by fat. Fat also helps the body absorb and move the fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E and K through the bloodstream. Dietary fat intake provides needed essential fatty acids to the body. These essential fatty acids are linoleic acid and linolenic acid. These are fatty acids that the body cannot make and which must be derived from foods.
Fats provide 9 Calories per gram, more than twice the amount of energy provided by a gram of carbohydrate or protein. An excess of dietary Calories provided by carbohydrates, proteins or fats will be stored in the body as adipose tissue. Adipose tissue serves as insulation for the body’s cells and organs but an excess of fat can lead to overweight and obesity.
Triglycerides are the chemical form of fats that exist in foods as well as in the body. Animal fats, such as butter and lard, tend to be solid or semisolid at room temperature and are more saturated than fats from plant sources. Fats from plant sources are usually liquid at room temperature and are called oils. Most plant oils are made up of unsaturated fatty acids with the exception of coconut, palm, and palm kernel oils. There are two types of unsaturated fats:
• Monounsaturated fats: Examples include olive and canola oils.
• Polyunsaturated fats: Examples include fish, safflower, sunflower, corn, and soybean oils.
Fats are important nutrient for babies and young children. They are needed to support growth, development and energy needs. A child who is not eating or drinking foods with adequate amounts of essential fatty acids can develop a fatty acid deficiency. This is one reason why healthcare professionals strongly advise against the use of skim or low fat milks during early childhood. Signs of an essential fatty acid deficiency include poor growth, scaly skin lesions, dry brittle nails, dandruff, and lack of hair luster.
More than 98% of the fat in human breast milk is in the form of triglycerides. The most abundant triglycerides in breast milk are the saturated fatty acids oleic acid and palmitic acid. It also contains high proportions of the essential fatty acids linoleic fatty acid and linolenic fatty acid. Human milk also contains the non-essential polyunsaturated fatty acids, DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) and ARA (arachidonic acid).
The fat blend of Baby’s Only Organic® formulas consist of organic high oleic sunflower and/or organic high oleic safflower oil, organic coconut oil, and organic soybean oil. This blend was developed because the percentages of the various types of fats are similar to breast milk. This combination of oils also provides appropriate levels of the essential fatty acids, linoleic acid (LA) and alpha-linolenic acid (ALA).

Ingredients & Quality
We were trying to find something for my 1 year old so he would not have to transition to whole milk. After doing an extensive research, this is the only formula that contains natural ingredients. I would definitely recommend this product to all mothers!
The best formula for my baby's irritable stomach.
Our son could not vomited on breastmilk, Nutramigen, and lactose free formula. This is the only formula he tolerates. He has a rare metabolic disease, Glycogen Storage Disease, and this is by far the best for his system.
Great choice for those that want organic
I am a Mom of 2 boys, I had very low breast milk supply after both pregnancies. I was dedicated to BF and knew every trick in the book to 100% BF, but realized I had hypoplasia breasts that limited my supply no matter what I did. I was so happy to find an organic formula to help supplement for my 2nd child in addition to BF. I wish I knew about this when I had my first son!
I had to switch my baby from breastmilk to formula. After trying several different dairy-based formulas and discovering a milk protein allergy (eczema, ear infections and vomiting) I turned to Baby's Only and it has been a complete lifesaver. I read all of these reviews and knew I could trust other moms so I went to the store immediately and bought a canister. I started introducing it to my little one buy mixing it with goat's milk (since it's so close in taste to breastmilk) and she transitioned beautifully. I am SO grateful for an organic, non-GMO soy-based formula that is not outrageously expensive, especially since that is our only option at this point. Thank you for making a great product!
Healthiest Formula on the market!
I am a very health conscious person amd considering our famiky is dairy free by choice i was looking for a great soy formula! I believe this product is superior because its organic and powered by plants. My 5 month old loves it, it tastes great and doesn't stibk. Her digestion is normal and she is free from gas, bloating, constipation and she never spits up!
My reflux baby was spitting up everything on Alimentum. Now he holds down 99% of his feedings.
I had to give my baby formula when he was 2 days old due to a very bad case of Jaundice and the fact that my milk hadn't fully come in yet and he needed the hydration to clear out the jaundice. After just one bottle of normal formula, he broke out in hives from head to toe. I took this to mean he had a milk allergy. Fast forward 6 weeks and we had to switch completely to formula after a latching issue coupled with an overactive letdown let to a 3 day breast strike. I was unsure what to do since my son had developed very bad reflux at this point (most likely due to my OALD). I knew I couldn't give him milk formula and was too afraid to do soy because I know how heavily sprayed and genetically modified the plant is. So I was recommended Similac Alimentum RTF. I was told it was the Rolls Royce of Formulas for reflux babies. We decided to put him on it and for a while things seems ok. He was only spitting up a bit and didn't break out into hives. But after about a month a noticed he had started spitting up copious amounts of formula. He would seriously spit anywhere from 3-10 times after EVERY feeding. We tried everything to stop it. Craniosacral therapy, chiropractic adjustments, feeding him upright, not laying him down for 30 minutes after a feeding, different kinds of bottles, etc. Finally I read that if a baby has a true milk allergy that eventually even the hypoallergenic formulas cause problems as the baby builds up the proteins in their system just more slowly. I knew we had to switch to soy and was not happy until our health food store told me about this brand. No corn syrup, no GMO ingredients and all organic. I was willing to try anything at this point at my son fell from the 75th percentile to the 50th in 2 months. He drank 6oz at the first bottle!!! It was a challenge to get him to take 4-5oz on the other formula as it tastes god awful (yes I tried it). The first few days he still spit up but not nearly as much and now after about a week he hardly dribbles out his mouth once or 2x with a burp. I'm soooooo overjoyed!!! I never write product reviews but I feel so grateful and happy that I had to let everyone know how great this product has been for us. I told his pediatrician that we had switched to this formula and she was very happy that we did and said she expects that once the milk proteins are completely out of his system, spit up will most likely be rare. Again, thank you for making such a wonderful product. Please please please don't ever stop or lower your standards. We need companies like this in the world!!
Feel good giving this to baby
I really wanted to breastfeed exclusively, but due to having to return to work immediately, I just couldn't pump enough to not have to supplement. I searched all around for the most nutritious formula to give and came across this. Baby loves it, and has no issues going back and forth between this formula and breastmilk, and I feel good about giving it to him.
An amazing product!!!
After losing my milk supply to Bells Palsy shortly after I delivered my third baby- I was very upset and on the look out for something that I could trust. First we tried all the normal commercial brands, then after none of them worked the dr recommended hypoallergenic formulas that made my baby even more sick, then we were on an elemental formula and she was still sick. Being a nutritionist I knew this just wasn't right, it has to be the formula. After discussing it with the pediatrician, she said I could try Baby's only if I wanted since nothing else was working.
I ran out that day and picked up a can and ever since that first bottle my baby had been happy, full, sleeping well, not spitting up anymore and overall thriving! I've never been more impressed with a product, a company and their customer service as I am with Natures One!
Thank you for making a trust worthy product and standing behind it!
