Yes, our Toddler Original Plant-Based Complete Nutrition Drink is USDA Certified Organic.
What does that mean?
USDA certified organic means that a food is grown and processed in a way that meets the federal guidelines for soil quality, treatment of animals, pest control, and the use of additives. Organic farmers and food producers use natural farming practices as well as no synthetic fertilizers or pesticides. For more information about prohibited substances on organic farms visit the USDA Blog “Organic 101: Allowed and Prohibited Substances”.For multi-ingredient foods, like Else, in order to be considered USDA certified organic and bear the USDA organic seal in addition to organic certification of each ingredient, these foods must not contain artificial preservatives, colors, flavors, or GMOs.
Else™ Toddler was designed to supplement the diet of toddlers ages 1-3 years.
The best nutrition for infants is breast milk (exclusively up to 6 months and with complementary feeding from 6 months) or infant formula when exclusive breast milk is not available.
We are developing soy-free plant-based infant formula which will be available in the next few years once the clinical study has been completed to reach FDA approval.
The 2 sources of protein in Else™ Toddler are almonds and buckwheat. The combination of both sources is high-quality plant-based protein sources that contain all the essential amino acids. Please refer to product guides for full amino acid profiles.
Else Toddler and Kids are Complete Nutrition products tailored for different age groups, meaning they have different nutritional compositions (e.g. lower sugars, more fat in the Toddler product) to meet the nutritional needs of different age groups. Else Kids also offers different product flavors (4 different flavors in Kids) and serving sizes. Else Toddler is designed for 12+ months, and the Kids product is designed for 2 years+.
No, lactose-free and dairy-free are not the same. Lactose is a sugar found in milk and dairy products. Lactose-free products, including toddler formulas, have the lactose removed or hydrolyzed, making them suitable for individuals with lactose intolerance, however, they are still dairy-based. On the other hand, dairy-free products completely exclude any form of dairy, including milk proteins hence can be an alternative for cow milk allergy patients. Our Else® Toddler Plant-Based Complete Nutrition Drink is both lactose-free and dairy-free, offering an alternative for those avoiding both lactose and dairy.
Else® Toddler Plant-Based Complete Nutrition Drink is a non-milk-based toddler formula. It's thoughtfully crafted with whole plant-based ingredients, providing essential nutrients designed to support the growth and development of toddlers aged 1 year +. This makes it a suitable choice for those seeking a milk alternative for their child.
No, lactose-free formula is not inherently less filling. The filling sensation after consuming a formula depends on various factors including the ingredients, nutritional composition, and the individual child's response. Our Else® Toddler Plant-Based Complete Nutrition Drink is designed to provide balanced and satisfying nutrition for toddlers, offering a blend of whole plants providing complete nutrition; with all 3 macronutrients and 20+ vitamins and minerals.
Hypoallergenic formulas are specifically formulated for infants and toddlers with cow milk allergies. They are based on extensively hydrolyzed milk proteins or amino acids, which makes them hypoallergenic, not causing an allergic reaction.
Lactose-free formula is not generally known to cause constipation. Constipation can have various causes and can vary from child to child. Our Else® Toddler Plant-Based Complete Nutrition Drink is formulated from whole plants providing a blend of macronutrients and natural prebiotics fiber, to support healthy digestion. If you have concerns about constipation, it's always best to consult with a healthcare professional.
Instead of cow's milk, you can consider offering your 1-year-old alternatives such as fortified plant-based toddler drinks like Else® Toddler which designed to provide essential nutrients for growing toddlers. You can also include a variety of other calcium-rich foods in their diet, like fortified non-dairy yogurts, leafy greens, and fortified non-dairy milk products, after consulting with a pediatrician.
