Earth’s Best is owned by The Hain Celestial Group, a multi-million dollar public corporation that owns numerous organic and natural food brands.

Earth’s Best would not share the sourcing information of the soy products used in its soy-based infant formula. If you enjoy Earth’s Best¨ products, we would encourage you to contact the company and ask them to participate in the Cornucopia research study and scorecard.

Earth’s Best organic infant formula contains several hexane-extracted ingredients, including soy lecithin and DHA oil and ARA oil.

IMPORTANT:

If you are giving your baby infant formula, and he or she experiences adverse reactions such as explosive diarrhea, projectile vomiting, excessive gas or other gastrointestinal symptoms (and switching formula has not brought relief), your baby may be reacting to the algal DHA (Crypthecodinium cohnii oil) and fungal ARA (Mortierella alpina oil) oils in infant formula. Baby’s Only does not contain these potentially harmful additives, and may relieve your baby’s symptoms. Please consult your pediatrician.

For more information on hexane-extracted DHA and ARA oils in infant formula, see The Cornucopia Institute’s report: “Replacing Mother: Imitating Human Breastmilk in the Laboratory.” Available at: www.cornucopia.org/replacing-mother-infant-formula-report/

If your baby experienced adverse reactions to algal DHA and fungal ARA in infant formula, please file an adverse reaction report with the FDA’s Medwatch program (www.accessdata.fda.gov/scripts/medwatch/medwatch-online.htm), and send a copy of your report to [email protected] so that The Cornucopia Institute can document these side effects.
