How Burt’s Bees Baby Organic Formulas Provide Complete Nutrition for Growth and Development
Burt’s Bees believes in nourishing ingredients backed by science. We consciously craft our baby formulas with quality ingredients so your little one gets the complete nutrition they need inspired by breast milk.
Our infant formulas are Certified Organic by the USDA and meet all FDA nutrition and safety requirements. They’re produced in Vermont, with dairy ingredients sourced from quality dairy farms in the United States, Canada, Europe, and New Zealand.
Burt’s Bees Baby is here to provide you with information and transparency to support you on your feeding journey. That’s why we want to share a bit more about our formulas, the ingredients, and how they provide complete nutrition for growth and development.
Organic Feeding Options for Baby
Burt’s Bees has always been passionate about the care and treatment of animals and the environment. Our formulas are produced using milk from dairy cows raised in pastures and fed a 100-percent organic diet. Organic management, year-round access to the outdoors, and space for exercise accommodate their natural health and behavior, making for happy cows that produce high-quality milk.
In addition to being Certified Organic, our formulas are also Non-GMO, meaning the ingredients used in them are not genetically engineered. USDA Certified Organic means:
- No Added Hormones†
- No Added Antibiotics
- No Added Preservatives
- No Genetic Engineering
Our organic baby formulas are also gluten free and certified kosher by the Orthodox Union (OU). This means Burt’s Bees Baby Organic Formulas may be consumed by all those who observe kosher dietary laws and many others who have special dietary requirements.
We also offer routine and specialty formulas designed for tummy troubles. Whether you’re transitioning your baby to formula or supplement feeding, you can feel confident that Burt’s Bees Baby formulas will nourish your baby.
The Nutritional Science Behind Our Organic Baby Formulas
Nutrients are chemical compounds in food that are used by the body to function properly and maintain health. These include proteins, fats, carbohydrates, vitamins, and minerals. Essential nutrients—proteins, vitamins, and minerals—must be obtained from the diet and are necessary for normal growth and development. Deficiency of essential nutrients can result in disease. That’s one of the reasons why the government regulates infant formula—because it nourishes a very sensitive population.
Burt’s Bees Baby Organic Formulas comply with the FDA’s Code of Federal Regulations, which require all formulas to contain nutrients at specified levels. Our formulas are tailored for little ones and meet the nutritional levels recommended by the U.S. National Academy of Science-National Research Council and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP). These include the mineral iron and key vitamins that you’ll find on our labels, including calcium and Vitamins D, E, and K.
Nourishing Ingredients: Nutrients for Your Baby
Burt’s Bees Organic Formulas feature nutrients necessary for infant growth and development, including:
- Iron is necessary for normal growth and development in infants. Some babies do not have enough natural reserves of iron. For that reason, the FDA and the AAP recommends iron-fortified formula.
- Calcium is important for bone health from birth onward.
- Vitamin D is an important nutrient for bone, muscle, and immune health. It also plays a major role in calcium uptake and metabolism.
- Vitamin E is an antioxidant for immune health and for healthy skin and eyes.
- Vitamin K helps blood clots and prevents excessive bleeding; low levels of Vitamin K can raise the risk of uncontrolled bleeding. Vitamin K deficiencies are very common in newborn infants.
Burt’s Bees believes all babies should have dietary DHA omega-3, which is why our formulas feature DHA. We also only source water-extracted DHA, which means hexane is not used to provide this ingredient.

Our Ultra Gentle Formula is specially formulated with easy-to-digest proteins for fussiness, gas, and crying. This formula features gentle proteins, DHA for the brain and eyes, and calcium for bones.
Burt’s Bees Baby Organic Sensitive Formula

The AAP recommends offering your baby foods that are lactose reduced if he or she shows signs of being lactose intolerant or sensitive to lactose. We recommend consulting with your baby’s pediatrician if your child is having difficulty feeding.
