Made with the pure and naturally occurring A2 protein type.
Naturally A1 protein free.
a2 Platinum® Premium infant formulas and milk drinks are made in New Zealand, to the highest industry standards for infant formula quality and safety.
a2 Platinum® is not lactose free – it contains levels of lactose (naturally occurring milk sugars) comparable to that of other premium infant formulas made from cow’s milk.
There are differences between manufacturers in the composition of infant formula; however the composition of all infant formula products has to comply with strict standards set by Food Standards Australia and New Zealand (FSANZ).
Most formulas are based on cow’s milk, where the ratio of whey to casein is changed so that the combination of these protein types is closer to that of breast milk.
Infant formulas also have a blend of vegetable oils added as a fat source and most include essential fatty acids, such as Omega 3 DHA, that help support normal brain and eye development.
The lactose from the cow’s milk base provides a source of carbohydrate.
There may be other potentially beneficial ingredients added to the formula, including nucleotides and prebiotics which may support the developing immune system or the development of healthy gut bacteria and so help support digestion.
a2 Platinum formula for babies is based on a unique and natural protein blend suited to babies. It is the only formula for babies made with milk from cows specially selected to naturally produce the A2 protein and none of the A1 protein commonly found in ordinary cow’s milk. The a2 Platinum baby formula range is nutritionally tailored for each stage of your baby’s development.
Breastfeeding is best for babies and provides the optimal balance of nutrition and protection during growth and development.
Good maternal nutrition is important in preparation for and during breastfeeding. If you are considering bottle feeding, always seek professional advice as introducing bottle feeding, either partially or exclusively, may adversely affect breastfeeding by reducing the amount of your own breast milk supply and may be difficult to reverse should you change your mind. Consider the financial and social implications when deciding on a feeding method for your baby.
Improper or unnecessary use of infant formula may affect the health of your baby, therefore, always prepare and use as per the manufacturer’s instructions.
