Safety is our most important ingredient

Tried-and-tested formula. Evidence-based development.


Combining the best science and nature: For our goal of our research on breast milk and gut microbiota for 20 years. Learn more about our pre- & probiotics in our infant formulae!

Definitely the ideal combination

Based on the latest findings of breast milk research, the Nutritional Science department of HiPP has developed a new generation of infant milk: HiPP COMBIOTIC®.


  • natural folate form (5-MTHF) as found in human milk1
  • immediately available to the body, it does not need to be metabolised
  • Metafolin® is safe for use in formulae2

Natural probiotic

  • Lactobacillus fermentum hereditum® CECT5716
  • unchanged original lactic acid culture from breast milk1, 2, 3
  • a primary coloniser of the intestine4
  • supports a healthy intestinal flora5
  • contributes to modulation of immune response6, 7

Proven prebiotic: GOS

  • galacto-oligosaccharides obtained from organic lactose
  • stool consistency and frequency similar to breastfed children8–11, 5
  • promotes the growth of beneficial intestinal bacteria8-10, 5
  • proven to be safe12

Clinical studies prove: Safety & significantly fewer infections

HiPP ORGANIC COMBIOTIC® supports the development of a healthy intestinal microbiota with its synbiotic composition1,2:

Clinical studies1, 2 prove:

  • combination of pro- and prebiotics is safe and bene­ficial
  • signi­ficantly fewer infections
  • combination of GOS + L. fermentum signi­ficantly better than prebiotic (GOS) alone

Important palmitic acid

  • saturated fatty acids predominate in breast milk
  • important for good tolerability of formula13
    > less watery and more yellowy stools (similar to those of breastfed children)

Omega 3 and 6 LCP

  • evidence-based and recommended14
  • important for cognitive and visual development
  • optimum ratio of omega 3 and 6 LCP (DHA and ARA)

Appropriately low protein content

  • < 2.0 g/100 kcal, tailored to physiological needs15
  • obtained from high-quality organic milk and whey
