The All You Need to Know Guide on Kendamil Organic Formulas

In the modern world, companies are finally paying attention to not only providing a high-quality product, but also one that does not have a devastating impact on the environment. If you are looking to switch to more sustainable brands, then we definitely recommend Kendamil as one to check out.

For those who have not heard of it before, Kendamil is an infant nutrition company with almost 60 years of expertise in the industry and pioneering research at the heart of everything they do. The business is based in the Lake District in England, giving it direct access to some of the best milk farms in the country. Keeping the happiness of the animals central to the business has always been Kendamil’s first objective, because a happy cow makes happy milk!

Founder Ross McMahon always says that stress-free animals who are allowed to roam free produce the sweetest milk, rich in omega 3. Ross himself was raised on a farm, so he grew up around animals from an early age. As such, animal welfare has always been a passion of his, ensuring that all the ingredients found within Kendamil products are top-notch. Over the years, he has set high standards for the Kendamil brand and, more importantly, maintained them. The company works closely with farmers to get milk from the source and pasteurizes it in their completely renewable-energy-driven factory. They then add all the minerals and vitamins your baby needs before turning it into a formula powder. In contrast to the milk powder process, which can damage the protein in the formula, Kendamil turns their own raw milk (organically certified by the EU) to keep all that goodness inside.

Kendamil makes sure to utilise the milk’s full cream to ensure all the MFGM remains, which is a crucial ingredient within natural breast milk. MFGM is said to boost a baby’s cognitive development, and it also happens to make the product taste amazing (perfect for those fussy babies). What’s more, Kendamil products are also vegetarian, thanks to the lack of any soy oil, palm oil or fish oil.

The organic formula range from Kendamil also features GOS (a healthy prebiotic) and Human Milk Oligosaccharides. In fact, Kendamil have the only organic formula on Planet Earth to include HMOs! The HMOs within Kendamil organic milk, which occur naturally, are also present in colostrum after a mother gives birth and can boost immunity in babies. One of such HMOs, 3’GL, has been proven to help reduce gut inflammation.

Kendamil Organic Stage 1 First Infant Milk (from birth onwards) - 800g 

Kendamil’s Stage 1 infant milk mirrors the same ratio of whey and casein as is found in natural breast milk (60:40). They also include the essential fatty acids for growth and brain development, including ARA, LA, and ALA, as well as DHA which is plant-based. This Stage 1 milk also contains the same natural fat as natural breastmilk, MFGM, which boosts cognitive development. Kendamil has even made sure to keep their Stage 1 product free from starch, soy oil, fish oil, palm oil, and maltodextrin.

Kendamil Organic Stage 2 Follow-on Milk (6-12 months) - 800g

Kendamil’s Stage 2 milk is a perfect option for parents who started their children on the likes of Holle PRE, which contains no maltodextrin or starch. The Stage 2 milk is also without these substances, using a whole milk formula with a whey to casein ratio of 40:60. Kendamil keeps its Stage 2 product free from starch, soy oil, fish oil, palm oil, and maltodextrin. Compared with the Stage 1 milk, Kendamil’s Stage 2 milk has more carbohydrates and calories, as well as more iron, as the needs of your baby change when they reach the six-month stage.

Kendamil Organic Stage 3 Toddler Milk (12+ months) - 800g

Kendamil’s Stage 3 formula still contains the nutrients and vitamins from the first two stages, using full cream milk. It also boosts immune system development with HMOs and plant-based DHA. Used beyond the 12-month mark, this is known as a ‘weaning formula’ designed to transition from liquid to solids. The Stage 3 milk has more iron but less fat, protein, and calories than Stages 1 and 2. Kendamil made sure to keep their Stage 3 product free from starch, soy oil, fish oil, palm oil, and maltodextrin.
