Benefits of Grass-fed Milk in Baby Formula

What is grass-fed milk?

Grass-fed milk is produced by cows that graze outdoors in a pasture as opposed to being fed an indoor, grain-based diet. It is also sometimes called “grassmilk.” Because cows are ruminants—animals that have a four-chambered stomach—they are uniquely able to digest grass and other fibrous plants they forage in the pasture, getting the nutrition they need for themselves, as well as producing nutrient-rich milk. 

While the specific nutritional makeup of milk is influenced by many factors, including the cow’s specific diet, region, and general farming practices of the land, there are a few common benefits of grass-fed cows milk in contrast to milk that comes from indoor, grain-fed cows.  

What do we mean by 365-day grass-fed?

A good question to ask when you’re considering adding grass-fed milk to your diet — or infant formula made with grass-fed milk to your baby’s diet — is how often grass-fed cows actually consume grass. At Aussie Bubs, our cows graze outside, on Australian grass pasture, 365 days a year. That’s as free range as you can get!  

What are the benefits of grass-fed milk?

There have been numerous studies comparing the nutrients in grass-fed milk to that of regular milk—and grass-fed milk has proven to have certain benefits. If you’re considering infant formula made with grass-fed milk, here’s what you need to know.  

Grass-fed milk naturally contains higher levels of:

  • Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids, which are instrumental in brain and eye development in babies.
  • Protein, which is essential for growth, development, and support of major body functions in infancy and throughout life.
  • Conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), which is essential in an infant’s diet and which has anticarcinogenic, anti-obese, antidiabetic and antihypertensive properties.
  • Beta-carotene, a carotenoid that has important antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, and converts in the body to vitamin A, which contributes to vision and eye health, the immune system, and healthy skin.

Why choose infant formula made with grass-fed milk?

When choosing an infant formula for your baby, pure, high-quality ingredients are non-negotiable. Cows are meant to graze and forage. They have an amazing digestive system that converts wide-ranging material sources into nutrient-dense food, making milk from grass-fed cows closest to nature.
