All our Products are developed in conjunction with nutritionists and food technologists, to ensure the highest standards and product efficacy are achieved. Our manufacturing plants are certified facilities, where quality systems and lab testing ensure our products meet or exceed all relevant Australian standards. Our suppliers are a key part of our success so we co-ordinate closely with them to ensure our entire supply chain is world class.

What we leave out is Important

No Artificial Colours and Flavours

Our products will never have any artificial colours and flavours; we believe that nature knows best.

No Preservatives

We develop natural products that don’t need preservatives, and we will never add them.

No GMO

We are GMO free;
it’s that simple.

No Maltodextrin

No Maltodextrin

There is absolutely no maltodextrin in our products.

No Palm Oil

We are Palm Oil free; that’s good for you, the environment and for the protection of our animal friends.

No Added Sucrose

We are Sucrose free; we believe nature is sweet enough.

No Maltodextrin

Maltodextrin is a white powder made from core, rice, potato starch, or wheat. It is closely related to core syrup solids [1].
It is inexpensive and easy to produce, so it used as cheap filler for some dairy products. Despite being plant base, it is highly processed, has no nutritional value and may even contribute to health challenges.

Maltodextrin has a high GI so can cause blood sugar levels to spike, especially if consumed in large amounts. It should be avoided by those who have, or are predisposed to developing, diabetes or have insulin resistance[1].

Maltodextrin has been shown to suppress the growth of probiotics in digestive systems[2]. These are important for immune system function[3], so those at risk of developing an autoimmune or digestive disorder should avoid it[1].

Our Sustaining Approach

The health and wellbeing of our customers is our number one priority. In order to create the greatest level of safety and parenting support possible we are fully compliant with:

  • International Code of Breast-milk Substitutes WHO 1981
  • FSANZ Infant Formula Code for Infant Formula 2.9.1
  • FSANZ Schedule 4 Nutrition and Health related claims
  • MAIF Agreement (Marketing in Australia of Infant Formula)
  • The Australian Infant Nutrition Council Code of Practice

Our Systems & Accreditations

Our Manufacturing partners are experienced Victorian dairy processing plants with the required Quality Assurance Systems, including HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point). These cover all of the areas including A2 protein milk and ingredient sourcing, manufacturing and logistics.

We have built systems to ensure that we deliver on our promise of quality and product availability. In order to achieve this, we have developed our Business Continuity Policy which includes:

  • Recall and Withdrawal Processes
  • Crisis & Recovery Plans
  • Crisis Communication Plans
