New recipe for our HiPP formulae in our tried-and-tested organic quality

Dear Parents,

We’ve got some news for you: From April 2020 there will be new recipes for our HiPP formulae. As parents you are sure to want to know which changes will be made to our HiPP formulae, and why we are making these changes. You can find all the important information about that on this page.

Why are there new recipes?

The reason for updating our recipes is a new European Regulation on milk formulae. It regulates and standardises the composition of formulae in Europe.

The new regulation is linked to the latest scientific findings from research and development. This means that formulae will be tailored to be even closer to the special needs of babies.

Our tried-and-tested nutritional concepts will remain unchanged, along with the familiar, high organic quality of our raw materials and the demanding safety standards, which you have always been able to rely on in HiPP formulae.

From April the new HiPP formula with its new recipe will be available in stores.

INFANT FORMULAE

The most important information at a glance

Which infant formulae are going to change?

HiPP 1 ORGANIC COMBIOTIC®

How will the new formula be different?

Increase in the content of polyunsaturated fatty acids (LCPs)

What are LCPs?
LCP stands for long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids. These fatty acids are important for your baby. Examples of LCPs are docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), an omega-3 fatty acid, and arachidonic acid (ARA), an omega-6 fatty acid

As a baby’s body cannot produce sufficient amounts of LCPs itself in the first months, we have been adding LCPs to our infant formulae for a long time. Now the EU has passed a directive on formulae making the addition of DHA a legal requirement.

Experts also support the addition of DHA and ARA to infant formula. Studies have shown that formulae not fortified with these fatty acids may lead to lower fatty acid levels in bottle-fed infants compared to breastfed infants, as breast milk naturally contains ARA. This is why we have been adding a combination of DHA and ARA to our HiPP infant formulae for some years..

What is DHA and why is it important?
DHA – which stands for docosahexaenoic acid – is a long-chain polyunsaturated omega-3 fatty acid. Omega-3 fatty acids occur naturally in breast milk. To ensure that babies who are not breastfed are also provided with enough DHA, it is added to infant formula, e.g. in the form of fish oil.

What is ARA?
ARA – which stands for arachidonic acid – is a long-chain polyunsaturated omega-6 fatty acid. Omega-6 fatty acids occur naturally in breast milk. The content depends heavily on the mother’s diet. To ensure that babies who are not breastfed are also provided with enough of these vital fatty acids, ARA is added to infant formula, e.g. in the form of plant-based oils (e.g. from Mortierella alpina).

The content of certain vitamins and minerals will change

The minimum and maximum amounts of nutrients will be adjusted according to the latest scientific findings, to better meet the nutritional needs of infants.

The energy content will be changed to resemble that of breast milk

There are new scientific findings on the daily energy requirements of infants. This is why we will also adjust our feeding guide:

Care and experience – for the most valuable in life

Our new formulae are still tailored to meet the special nutritional needs of infants, so that they get everything they need for their development.

For 50 years, we have dedicated all our care and experience to producing the best formulae. That’s why, with our HiPP formulae, you can trust in our long-established concepts that have been developed by nutritional experts, using breast milk as a role model – based on the latest findings in formula research and in the best HiPP organic quality.

Nothing has changed in our step-by-step concept, product names and age recommendations.

HiPP ORGANIC COMBIOTIC® Infant Formula

HiPP ORGANIC Infant Formula

A new recipe – What does that mean for my baby?

Due to the adjusted energy supply, drinking frequency and drinking behaviours could change slightly. Please note that the drinking amounts indicated on the packaging are still only guidelines. Should your baby require more or less formula, due to individual needs, please adjust accordingly.

Babies also have a very sensitive sense of taste. The possibility cannot, therefore, be ruled out that children may notice a change in taste, which, for example, may be due to the new, improved composition of fatty acids.

Babies will usually get used to the new formula after a few days..

Is there anything to bear in mind when preparing the new formula?

Thanks to the new recipe, the solubility of our formula will improve. This will make preparing the bottle a lot easier:

Can I use up the formula I have already purchased?

You can certainly use up the formula you are currently using.

The best way to transition from one feed to another is to do so gradually. Increase the number of feeds with the new formula by one bottle a day. This way, your baby’s digestive system can gradually get used to the new formula.

When will the new formula be available in stores?

From April 2020 the new HiPP formula with its new recipe will be available in stores. The words “new recipe” on the packaging will make it easy to identify the new formulae.


FOLLOW-ON FORMULAE

The most important information at a glance

Which follow-on formulae are going to change?

HiPP 2 ORGANIC COMBIOTIC®

How will the new formula be different?

The addition of the omega-3 fatty acid DHA supports brain and nerve tissue development as well as the visual development of infants.

What is DHA?
DHA – which stands for docosahexaenoic acid – is a long-chain polyunsaturated omega-3 fatty acid.

Why is DHA important?
Omega-3 fatty acids contribute to brain and nerve tissue development as well as the visual development of infants. Omega-3 fatty acids occur naturally in breast milk. From weaning age, babies are able to absorb DHA from solid food, e.g. from oily fish. In order to ensure sufficient intake of this very important nutrient in all children, the use of DHA will be a legal requirement in follow-on formulae in the future. Of course, there is also DHA in every HiPP follow-on formula.

The content of certain vitamins and minerals will change

The minimum and maximum amounts of nutrients will be adjusted according to the latest scientific findings, to better meet the nutritional needs of infants.
