is the one formula on the market which sources all organic ingredients
when they are available, which is especially important given that their
customers are babies and toddlers. It is the only formula on the market
that does not contain hexane-extracted soy lecithin and hexane-extracted
algal and fungal DHA and ARA oils that have been linked to severe side
effects in some babies.
They purchase soy
protein from a company that never uses hexane. Our research also
indicates that their soy protein supplier purchases only North
American-grown soybeans, although the supplier was unwilling to fully
disclose their sourcing information.

oils. The DHA and ARA in their formula are water-extracted from
organic egg yolks.
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 including Earth’s Best®, Similac®
Organic and Vermont Organics®. Baby’s Only®
does not contain these potentially
harmful additives, and may relieve your baby’s symptoms.
Please consult your pediatrician.
