Does Lebenswert Contain DHA?
Lebenswert has always been an ideal choice for baby’s organic feed and while we all loved how our babies adapted to it we are as much concerned it doesn’t have synthetic or lab formulated DHA. DHA being the hype of essential in the baby formula has been a necessity and expected ingredient in the baby formula.
Here is the Ingredient list for the Lebenswert Stage 1:
Organic skimmed milk, organic whey powder (partly demineralised), organic vegetable oils (palm, rapeseed, sunflower oil), lactose, potassium chloride, calcium, vitamin C, sodium chloride, ferrous gluconate, vitamin E, zinc sulfate, niacin, calcium pantothenate, copper sulphate , Vitamin B1, Vitamin B6 , Vitamin A, manganese sulfate, folic acid, potassium iodate, vitamin K1 , sodium selenate, vitamin D.
We do not see the presence of DHA or Omega 3 in the list mentioned above. We all have the taboo of DHA and ARA and that is what is targeted by most of the marketers out there and use it as a tool to sell of their product to us. The TRUTH is DHA is the result of the fish consumption in the mother’s diet. This leads to the making and high presence of omega 3 in the breast feed. No doubt that the nutrient in itself is essential for brain, neuron and sight development. But the kid can do without it anyway. It is not important that you have to include such a complicated ingredient in the baby food.
Sources of DHA in the baby milk:
The sources of having DHA or the properties of the ingredient are very doubtful. It matters, if you like your baby to consume vegetarian or non-vegetarian feed. The DHA is the long chain fatty acid that has omega 3 in it to have its presence in the baby formula various sources is used.
Fish oil is used for the presence of omega 3 in the formula which might not be acceptable by vegetarian people. Hexane is used which again is not an acceptable process to include DHA in the diet as it includes synthesizing. Algae oil is used in the formula for the same nutrient and that is further not acceptable by most of the parents because of the extraction process through an organism
Does Lebenswert contain DHA?
For the various reasons mentioned above and you can see for yourself that the Lebenswert does not contain DHA or Omega 3 in any questionable form in the formula. That is suited the best for the formula as there are other vitamins and minerals that can help the baby to develop strong and healthy.
