Bobbie is an organic milk-based infant formula that uses intact milk proteins in ratios similar to mature breast milk, lactose as the only source of carbohydrate, and a fat-blend that does not contain palm oil. It’s made in the U.S., meets all FDA requirements, and satisfies many EU standards such as DHA & iron.

Docosa-hexaenoic acid (DHA) is an omega-3, a long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acid and a key nutrient needed for rapid brain development.
It’s crucial for an infant’s first two years of life
There is no required DHA amount for U.S. infant formula
Bobbie meets the EU infant formula requirement for DHA

Lactose is the most common carbohydrate found in breast milk. Similarly, lactose is the main carbohydrate in Bobbie.
It's a source of energy to fuel growth
Lactose plays a role in how minerals are absorbed
Human milk has more lactose than most other kinds of milks, even if mom does not eat or drink dairy

Mature breast milk, on average, has a 60:40 whey to casein ratio, while cow's milk has a 20:80 ratio.
Bobbie’s whey to casein ratio is 60:40, similar to mature breast milk
Whey is easier to digest than casein
This ratio supports easy digestion

Iron transports oxygen throughout our bodies and is essential to support the development of the brain, nervous system, and the immune system.
Infants are born with iron stores
These iron stores start to decline around four months of age
Bobbie meets both EU and U.S. requirements for iron

We have sourced each ingredient with care, selecting only quality ingredients to make up our recipe. Click on each ingredient below to get the full scoop on why it matters and its function in human development.
Carbohydrate & protein, important source of essential minerals & amino acids
Non-fat milk is a source of protein and carbohydrate, and provides minerals such as calcium and phosphorus, which are important for bone health. Additional fat sources are added to produce a fat balance similar to human breast milk.
Fat, source of Vitamins E & K
Fat is a macronutrient that serves as a source of energy, helps deliver fat soluble vitamins, and is critical for neurological development and brain function.
Lactose is the most common carbohydrate found in breast milk and provides energy to fuel growth. It also helps with mineral absorption and plays a role in positively shaping the composition of the gut microbiota by supporting the beneficial bacteria.
Coconut oil provides Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCTs), a triglyceride (that’s the chemical name for fat!) that is more easily absorbed and metabolized for energy, and it may positively shape the gut microbiota.
Fat is an important nutrient that your baby needs for growth and development. Soybean oil is a source of the essential fat, linoleic acid.
Protein and minerals
Protein is essential for growth and development, tissue repair, and many metabolic functions throughout the body. Adding whey protein helps to make the whey:casein ratio more in line with what is found in mature breast milk.
A (soy bean) plant-based ingredient that helps to keep the formula from separating. Ours is made without the use of hexane solvents.
