What are HiPP Speciality & Hypoallergenic Formulas?
If you’ve been looking around at different baby formulas, you may have noticed some that stand
out among the pact. These may include the ones that are labeled specialty or hypoallergenic. If
your baby has digestion issues or allergies, these types of formulas have probably intrigued
But, what do those labels really mean?
That’s why we’re here. We’re going to break down the labels so that you can understand what’s
in these formulas and decide if any of them are right for your baby.
Let’s get started.
HiPP Hypoallergenic Formulas
If you look up the definition of hypoallergenic, you’ll find that it refers to something unlikely to
cause an allergic reaction. So, when you’re talking about hypoallergenic formulas, these are
formulas that are designed for babies who may be at risk for allergies or have known allergies.
At Organic Baby Formula.com, we offer HiPP Hypoallergenic Formulas in three different stages.
HiPP HA German Hypoallergenic Stage PRE Formula
This formula has all of the features of the traditional German Combiotik formula, but with
hypoallergenic modifications. It’s made for babies to drink from birth and is safe for babies who
may be at risk of allergies or have known allergies.
The PRE stage of the HiPP German formula does not have any starch so your baby can feed
longer without feeling too full. The organic milk that is used also has reduced allergenic
properties because the protein is divided into smaller fragments. This makes it easy for your
baby to tolerate the milk.
The Probiotik blend has natural lactic acid bacteria which comes from the same bacteria found
in human milk. The formula also contains essential fatty acids, important vitamins and minerals,
prebiotics, and probiotics.
HiPP HA German Hypoallergenic Stage 1 Formula
The HiPP Combiotik HA series includes a hypoallergenic formula that is made with whey protein
hydrolysate. Stage 1 is made for babies from birth to six months. It contains long-chain milk
proteins that have been broken down into smaller pieces, reducing the risk of allergic reaction.
Lactose is the main source of carbohydrates with no sugar. You will find starch in this formula to
help thicken the formula and make it creamier. Just as with other HiPP HA baby formulas, Stage
1 has a unique blend of prebiotics and probiotics to help your baby’s immune system and gut.
Galacto-oligosaccharides comprise the prebiotic blend and organic lactic acid bacterial cultures
make the probiotic blend. With its long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids, this formula is also a
boost for healthy brain and eye development.
HiPP HA German Hypoallergenic Stage 2 Formula
The Stage 2 formula is designed for babies 6 months and older. It can help your baby resolve
symptoms of cow’s milk sensitivity. The hypoallergenic formula can help babies who have
struggled with digestive issues, skin reactions, or hay fever symptoms from traditional cow’s
You’ll find lactose as the only carbohydrate source, and a specialized formula of whey protein
hydrolysate, but no casein. With its long-chain milk proteins broken down into smaller pieces,
this formula is easier to digest with minimal risk of allergic reaction.
HiPP Speciality Formulas
Besides hypoallergenic formulas, there are also specialty formulas aimed at helping babies with
other issues. At Organic Baby Formula.com, we offer an anti-reflux baby formula and a comfort
HiPP AR German Anti-Reflux Baby Formula
The HiPP German Anti-Reflux Baby formula aims to help babies who struggle with reflux and a
lot of burping. It’s made for babies from birth and up, but is recommended to be used as a
supplement only as needed, rather than your baby’s only source of nutrients. This formula is
thick, creamy, and easy for your baby to digest.
It contains long-chain polysaccharides like Omega-3 and Omega-6, vitamins, nutrients, and
probiotics. There are no artificial flavors or preservatives. But, you will find certified organic
ingredients, making it the cleanest choice for your baby.
HiPP German Comfort Milk Formula
As another specialty blend, the HiPP German Comfort formula is an easy-to-digest formula for
babies of all ages. It includes a reduced lactose content that can help with things like
constipation, bloating and gas. Since it contains galacto-oligosaccharides derived prebiotics and
lactic acid bacteria probiotics, this formula has nutrients that are similar to those found in breast
milk. It has carbohydrate sources like maltodextrin and starch. Because it’s thick and creamy, it
helps your little one stay full for longer.
The HiPP German Comfort Milk Formula contains a whey protein base that has been broken
down into smaller fragments, like the hypoallergenic blends, making it easier to digest. There
are also long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids to help with brain and eye development.
The Bottom Line
When it comes to hypoallergenic and specialty formulas, it’s best to talk to your pediatrician to
see which blend may be best for your baby. If you notice that regular organic baby formula is
difficult for your baby to digest, switching to one of these options may be the answer.
Remember, choosing the right baby formula can be a case of trial and error until you find the
perfect match for your baby. At Organic Baby Formula.com, we only offer the best quality
formula for your little one. If you have any questions about any of the specialty formulas we’ve
