UK infant formula manufacturer, Kendamil, has unveiled a new goat milk formula that contains Human Milk Oligosaccharides (HMOs).
As well as HMOs – a major component of human breast milk which aids cognitive development in infants – Kendamil Goat contains full-cream goats’ milk and goat whey.
Kendamil Goat is free from palm oil and fish oil, is made using plant-based docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and contains no GMOs.
According to Kendamil, goats’ milk is easier for babies to digest than cows’ milk and contains selenium and nucleotides, which support the development of the immune system.
The brand says that goats’ milk can be a solution for parents whose children are allergic to cows’ milk because it does not contain alpha-S1 casein, an allergen found in cows’ milk.
“Finally we have achieved another world first, a British-made goat formula using fresh liquid, full-cream goat milk from local British farms,” said Kendamil CEO, Ross McMahon.
“We’ve spent over a year perfecting our formulation with the latest ingredients including HMOs and plant-based DHA, to ensure that we offered UK parents the most scientifically advanced goat formula in the world.”
McMahon continued: “As a brand with sustainability at our very core, we can reassure our loyal followers that Kendamil Goat is made without the use of palm oil and fish oil. By sourcing from local British farms, Kendamil Goat formula offers the lowest carbon footprint in the UK market.”
Kendamil Goat is launching in Waitrose stores nationwide this November under an exclusive partnership with the retailer. This exclusivity agreement will be in place until the end of Q1 2021.
The brand recently released an organic infant formula range containing HMOs and featuring follow-on-milk and toddler milk variants.
