GLENDALE, CALIF. — Nestle Nutrition has launched Nestle Good Start Natural Cultures, a formula with probiotics.
"This is a major step toward providing formula-fed infants a part of the immune-related benefits that only breastfeeding can entirely provide," said Jose Saavedra, medical and scientific director for Nestle Nutrition.
The formula contains Bifidus BL cultures, which have been linked to supporting a healthy immune system. It also contains DHA and ARA, which help with brain and eye development, as well as comfort proteins, which are 100% whey protein and easy for a baby to digest.
The formula is available nationwide in 12-oz and 24-oz powder sizes.
