With over 85 years of experience in the baby food industry, Holle is one of the most trusted infant formula brands in Europe. Intended for babies and toddlers 12 months and older, Holle Bio Stage 3 is an organic cow's milk-based formula. With its short, clean list of ingredients, Holle Bio Stage 3 is a high-quality supplement or alternative to breast milk, and an ideal choice for weaning.
Like the Stage 2 version, Holle Bio Stage 3 is also an excellent alternative to cow's milk for toddlers, as it contains the correct quantities of nutrients for older babies. In addition to a base of biodynamic organic skim milk, Holle Bio Stage 3 features organic whey powder, organic maltodextrin, and organic starch derived from corn, DHA, organic vegetable oils, and essential vitamins and minerals such as iron, calcium, and Vitamin D, in the precise amounts needed to complement the varied diet of growing babies and toddlers. The ingredients list is perfect for parents who want a simple formula without added prebiotics or probiotic. You also won’t find soy, gluten, sucrose, or corn syrup in this formula.
Manufactured and packaged in Germany, Holle Bio Stage 3 is completely free from synthetic nutrients and artificial preservatives, coloring, and flavors. Furthermore, the ingredients in Holle Bio Stage 3 are derived entirely from GMO-free and chemical-free agriculture and manufacturing. In fact, Holle Bio Stage 3 meets the Demeter standard for organic, biodynamic farming, far surpassing the requirements for organic agriculture in the United States. Demeter certification requires farms to demonstrate a commitment to biodiversity promotion, ecosystem preservation, and the highest animal welfare standards.
Each box of Holle Bio Stage 3 contains 600 grams (21.2 oz) of formula powder, which should make approximately 150 fl oz of prepared formula.

About the Manufacturer
About Holle Organic
Founded in Switzerland in the 1930s, Holle quickly became one of the first companies to achieve the organic Demeter certification, given only to manufacturers working with the highest quality biodynamic farms. For over 85 years, the Holle brand has grown to represent the highest echelon of global organic quality.
While Holle produces a variety of baby products, Holle baby formula is known for its Demeter certification, formulations with fewer ingredients to promote easy digestion, and nutritional completeness. Holle formulas are always based on lactose from biodynamic skim milk, contain added whey to more closely resemble breast milk protein composition, and essential organic nutrients to promote healthy development. Holle also specializes in high quality organic goat milk formula as a healthy alternative for babies with sensitivity to milk proteins. The Holle brand also includes the Lebenswert Bio line of baby formulas, which it launched in 2009.
Holle also cares deeply about sustainability, undergoing a CO2 audit in 2012 covering its entire formula manufacturing process. Today, Holle’s baby formula products are CO2 neutral. At Huggable, we love Holle products because we can feel great about them both for their nutritional excellence and environmental sustainability.
