BOSTON – An infant formula made with goat milk sourced from the Netherlands soon will be sold in the United States. Kabrita USA announced its goat milk-based product meets all US Food and Drug Administration nutrition and safety requirements and is authorized to market in the US.
Kabrita USA is a division of Ausnutria, a Dutch dairy company that was established 100-plus years ago. Kabrita Goat Milk-Based Infant Formula (0-12 months) already is sold in 35 countries worldwide. Kabrita said the FDA’s authorization opened the door for the brand to sell the product in the US. Kabrita’s toddler formula made with goat milk has been sold in the US since 2014.
The brand shared that its infant formula is made with easy-to-digest goat milk protein with lactose and goat milk whey protein. Per Kabrita, the product was formulated to be easily digestible through the presence of A2 beta-casein, which is easy for babies to break down and digest, and because the whey to casein ratio is similar to breast milk.
Produced in the Netherlands, Kabrita Goat Milk-Based Infant Formula adheres to European standards, limiting the use of antibiotics, growth hormones and pesticides, the brand said. The milk used to make the formula comes from Dutch family-run goat farms.
The infant formula is expected to debut in the US later in 2023.
