frequently asked questions

Is goat's milk lactose-free?

No. Goat’s milk contains less lactose than cow’s milk, but lactose is still present. If your child is intolerant to lactose, goat’s milk won’t be appropriate.

What if From Fresh?

LittleOak’s fresh approach. We don’t mess with nature, because nature got it right.

Made from whole goat’s milk

LittleOak is made from whole goat’s milk. We don’t use cheap fillers to bulk up our product instead offer babies the natural goodness of goat’s milk – with less processing, less synthetic ingredients and more natural goodness.

Why should I choose LittleOak over the leading brand of baby formula?

LittleOak is created by mums who have been through exactly the same worries as you.

Drawing on the experience of a nutrition and paediatric expert, we understand how overwhelming it can be to make the right choice for your baby’s nutrition. With so many conflicting opinions and confusing terms, it can be impossible to know which way to turn.

We’ve gone on ahead and have done the research for you. Our team of experts have created a formula made with whole goat’s milk, cold-pressed flaxseed oil and natural vitamins and minerals. It is free of palm oil and canola oil.

Should I stop breastfeeding and use LittleOak formula instead?

LittleOak is the closest alternative to your milk that exists, but it’s not breast milk.

If you’re having difficulty breastfeeding or the child is six months old, and you want to phase out breastfeeding, LittleOak is the best choice in formula. If your baby is happy, healthy, feeding well and gaining weight, breastfeeding is still the healthiest choice for your baby.

what is the WHEY TO CASEIN ratio in your formulas?

Our whey to casein ratio for all 3 stages sits at around 20:80 which is the natural ratio for our goats milk. Goats milk has been scientifically proven to be more easily digested when consumed in its natural balance of whey to casein which is why we fell in love with it – for its natural goodness.

Does your formula cause any gas or constipation?

Goat’s milk is generally easier for babies to digest for several reasons: Firstly, it naturally contains more A2 casein. Goat milk has less than half the A1 casein protein found in cow’s milk. Like in adults, the A1 protein can be the cause of many digestive issues such as bloating, constipation, wind, and pain in babies. Finally, our goat’s milk is a rich source of nutrients including oligosaccharides or pre-biotics that assist indigestion.

Is your formula Organic?

Most of the whole goat milk we use is farmed using organic practices Although our formula is not organic, It’s quite a process to become an organically certified farm which is why many of the farms that we source our milk from choose not to pursue certification.

All of our ingredients are as naturally and sustainably sourced as possible, including our DHA and ARA (from algal sources) and more importantly, our cold-pressed flaxseed oil from the South Island in New Zealand.

Where do you source the oils used in your formula?

All of our other ingredients, as you know, are as natural as we can find and are sourced from the most sustainable sources including our DHA and ARA (from algal sources), and more importantly, our cold-pressed flaxseed oil from the South Island in New Zealand.

What methods are used to extract the DHA from your Algae source?

We use a Clay and Steam method that is natural and toxin free.

LittleOak is the first infant formula in the world to be certified Palm Oil free

We are the first infant formula in the world to be certified 100% Palm Oil Free by POFCAP. Palm oil inhibits the absorption of calcium, fats and DHA in babies so for us there was no question that we needed to find and use both alternative and better quality oils to provide the fatty acid and lipid profile in our products. Instead of palm oil, we use cold-pressed coconut oil and blended this with cold-pressed flaxseed oil and sunflower.

 

First in the world to used cold-pressed flaxseed oil to replace canola oil

We are also the first infant formula company in the world to use cold-pressed flaxseed oil from New Zealand to replace Canola Oil. Canola oil is a cheap oil that is extracted by hexane (essentially petroleum) and used by many companies. Instead, we prefer to use and source the highest quality ingredients to ensure we have the most natural infant formula available to mums and dads which is why we chose flaxseed. Flaxseed oil has many wonderful benefits in terms of its fatty acid profile but more excitingly recent research indicates that it may help babies rest and improve sleep.

DHA and ARA at levels that make a real difference

We source our DHA and ARA from the most natural algal sources. More importantly we include them at levels that are scientifically proven to make a real difference to a babies health, not just a “sprinkle” to secure a marketing claim. In many cases, our DHA is at levels that  are 4-5 times higher than competitors. We do this because scientifically we know that a baby needs more than 13g per 100ml serve to really benefit their growth and neural development.
